Who wants to win chocolates? Yes, I said CHOCOLATES! :)
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. :)
Among 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.
The 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.
And 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!
Finally, 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! :)
