Created by two friends in Reykjavík, Iceland, in 2013, Omnom is led by passionate chef Kjartan Gíslason and entrepreneur Óskar Þórðarson. Omnom produces small-batch, “bean-to-bar” chocolate, using the finest cacao beans sourced from around the world. Together, Gíslason and Þórðarson challenge the understanding of bean-to-bar chocolate production and the way flavors and textures can creatively expand the business.
As a chef, Gíslason has worked in Iceland, Luxembourg, Norway and Sweden. Passionate about the culture behind food, his natural affinity for pastries and desserts led him to chocolate. He joined the bean-to-bar movement and began making chocolate from scratch, first producing single-origin bars and soon experimenting with flavors and textures that could be achieved in small-scale batches. Joined by his childhood friend, Þórðarson, the duo quickly set up a modest production lab inside a converted gas station in Reykjavík, and Omnom was born.
As seen on Netflix!
Watching the Netflix documentary Down to Earth, hosted by Zac Efron, inspired us to order some Omnom for ourselves. The chocolate is so full of incredible flavour we just had to import it from Iceland to offer on Soho Fine Goods. One bite and we promise you will fall in love with Omnom!
