Go Max Go Vegan Candybars Giveaway


Who wants to win chocolates? Yes, I said CHOCOLATES! :)

Go Max Go Bars Pile

The kind people of Go Max Go Foods have sent me these awesome Vegan Ricemilk Chocolate Candybars.

I received three sets of bars. One set for myself and two sets to giveaway. Two winners will be picked and each one will receive four bars - one each of Mahalo, Buccaneer, Jokerz and Twilight.

This giveaway is open to everyone! Yippee!! You can enter no matter which part of the world you live in and if you win I will ship the candybars right to you. :)

BuccaneerAmong the four, Buccaneer has got to be my most favorite Go Max Go bar! It's a thick layer of delicious chocolate with a really decadent nougat filling. Mmm mmm mmm. The best part is that it has just the right level of sweetness so you can eat multiple bars and enjoy every single bite. Honestly, it's scary how quickly one can go through one bar after another of Buccaneer without even thinking about it! Arrrr.

JokerzThe Jokerz bar has been designed with the peanut connoisseur in mind. It is full of rich peanutty delight mixed in with chocolate and caramel. The flavor and texture of the peanuts meld well with the chocolate taste in a perfect balance. And it doesn't have that overpowering saltiness that the peanut-chocolate combination often does! This is quite a filling treat. Perfect for when you're hit by those mid-morning munchies! Or the late afternoon munches. Or the midnight munchies... you get the idea.

TwilightAnd now we come to the Twilight bar. This little guy is basically the same as Buccaneer except that, apart from the fluffy nougat and creamy chocolate, it also has a super-thick layer of caramel in between. I'm not normally into caramel but Twilight is definitely an exception for me. It reminds me of the 5 Star bars that we used to enjoy while growing up but like a zillion times better! I think it's that ricemilk chocolate which makes a world of difference here. For people who can't resist the marriage of caramel and chocolate, this bar will be pure heaven for you!

MahaloFinally, we have the Mahalo bar! *Hawaiian music* Mahalo is a Hawaiian word for gratitude and when a coconut lover bites into this bar, gratitude is exactly what they'll be feeling! This delectable goody is made primarily of coconut with a thin layer of chocolate and roasted almonds for added taste. So if you're not that into coconuts then move on please, nothing here for you to see. To those of us from India, Mahalo would taste pretty much like Coconut Barfi dipped in a delicious chocolatey coating. Tempted yet? :D A word of warning though, this bar is a tad higher on the sweetness compared to the rest of them so only if you have a real strong sweet tooth are you totally ready for Mahalo!

You can easily find the Go Max Go bars at various locations within the USA and also internationally. Not available in your country? Not to worry, there are plenty of online stores which will ship the bars to you. My favorite online vegan stores which ship worldwide are Pangea - The Vegan Store and Vegan Essentials. Sure, the chocolate will melt a little during transit but the little packs are sealed well so all you need to do is pop them into the fridge for a bit and they'll be ready to enjoy! :)

Now let me tell you about how you can win these bars for yourself...

There are various ways to participate (listed below) and each thing you do counts as an entry. The first one is mandatory but the rest of them are completely up to you! But make sure you leave a separate comment for every entry.

1. Tell us which Go Max Go candybar is closest to your heart (or if you haven't tasted them which one do you imagine you would like most). And more importantly, what flavor/style of chocolate candybar would you like Go Max Go Foods to create in the future?

  1. It's really too bad that all these bars contain "Soy" - I'm allergic...(I checked on the company's website) because they absolutely sound DIVINE!!!

    They really look yummy!

    I wish everybody good luck, and I hope that one day, this company will make soy-free bars.

  2. I am a Mahalo panda. bring on the coconut! I would like to most see a chocolate and mint type bar, perhaps in pattie form, but perhaps not.

    You can find me at Panda With Cookie!

  5. Nath, yeah I was hoping since these are rice milk bars they might not have had soy. Then I read the ingredients. I thought of you when I read soy. Sorry. :(
    But you never know, they might come out with Soy Free bars in the future as you hope.

  50. 1) I LOVE these so much. The mahalo is my favourite i think, though twilight comes second and really it's academic as I like them all! Best vegan chocolate ever. In the future I'd like to see something like a vegan butterfinger/honeycomb covered in this chocolate or something praline-y!,

    I think I'd like the Twilight as I miss Mars bars! A Crunchie or Kit-Kat style bar... or what's that one with puffed rice in the middle and layer of chocolate around the edge... I remember it coming in an orange wrapper!

    It would be so cool to win these, I've been wanting to try them for ages but never have enough spare cash to make an order online that makes the postage cost worthwhile and I can't find them locally!
