Chocomize Review

Chocolate is everything to me.  That sweet, rich, and creamy treat is irresistible.  I don't discriminate against that beautiful brown bar, but love every form of chocolate.  White, milk and dark all make my heart sing. Almonds in chocolate along with peanut butter are simply perfection in my eyes.  I could go for some chocolate right now!

Chocomize is by far the coolest candy company I've ever been exposed to.  They sell bars of milk, white, and dark chocolate that you can customize how you like.  How about a bar of milk chocolate with potato chips and teddy grahams in it? You bet! A bar of dark chocolate with granola and banana chips? Of course.  If you're feeling very adventurous how about a bar of white chocolate with nerds, marshmallows, Oreo pieces and junior mints? Chocomize offers many add in's such as granola, spices, nuts, seeds, any kind of candy pieces, and so much more.  You'll have a ball designing your bars, I know I did.  Not only would they make a fantastic upcoming Father's Day present, they'd make the ultimate gift for any chocolate lover. You can even put a little message in the chocolate depending on the holiday or occasion. Have fun experimenting with different textures and flavors and let your chocolate imagination soar.

Any opportunity that I receive to work with a chocolate company is truly a gift from the chocolate gods.  As I browsed each ingredient to add to my heavenly chocolate, my eyes got wider.  I thought to myself, "how can I choose when everything looks so fantastic?" I know that I wanted to try a variety of it all, so that made my creations a little less difficult.  Just days after designing, the candy showed up in the mail.  Luckily it was not melted at all, since it's been warmer here the past couple of weeks.

The first bar is milk chocolate with hazelnuts, Reese's pieces, cookie dough, junior mints and Oreo pieces.  The second is milk chocolate with peanut butter drops, mini marshmallows and Oreo pieces. The third is milk chocolate with Reese's pieces, cookie dough, junior mints and monkey munch. Lastly, you have glorious milk chocolate with large potato chips for a salty and sweet effect.  I am truly in chocolate paradise.

When I received the chocolate, I was not sure which bar to try first. I looked over each bar and weighed my options, along with eventually needing to weigh myself after sampling.  I loved how you could clearly see the chocolate through the window of the packaging.  I wasn't expecting the bar to be so large, but hey I'm not complaining.  All of the ingredients are full-sized for the most part, and they pack a lot of the add in's into the bar. The chocolate was so beautiful.  What an innovative idea!

I tried a few squares of bar #2 (as listed above). The chocolate easily snapped apart and I was left with hefty squares of chocolate that had Oreo pieces peeking out from inside.  I took a bite and the world stopped for a few seconds.  The chocolate was very sweet, that was what I instantly noticed.  I could also taste the gooey marshmallow and the nutty flavor of the peanut butter drop all together. It was outstanding!  The Oreo pieces provided a nice crunch that I enjoyed.  The chocolate and all ingredients were very fresh.

Lastly I tried a small piece of bar #2. Who am I kidding though?  You know I'll be back for more  nibbles later.  I've always heard that sweet and salty is a fantastic combination and really excites one's taste buds.  I had to prove this theory for myself. There were large chips packed into that bar and not too much space of just plain chocolate. The satisfying crunch provided by the chips was awesome.  The saltiness of the chips paired with the sweet chocolate was beyond words that I can describe.  It was truly fabulous.  My taste buds started doing the tango in celebration.  If you haven't tried a sweet and salty combo previously, I urge you to! You will absolutely love it, and probably become hooked like I now am.

I very much look forward to trying the other bars soon.  Please consider Chocomize for any gifts you'll want to buy for your Dad for his special day!  Here's an example of Father's Day chocolate bar!
