I receive what seems like more than my fair share of emails with products for review, but most of them go ignored. This is first and foremost a food blog and I’m not a sell-out hawking different items every week. I do occasionally accept these offers though, when the product is something I’m genuinely interested in and I think would be of interest to my readers. When someone from Chocomize contacted me to see if I would be interested in reviewing their chocolate bars, I went straight to their website to see what it was all about. Immediately I knew, this would be one of my exceptions.
So what is Chocomize? It’s a website that lets you customize your own chocolate bar. You start by choosing dark, milk or white chocolate as the base. Then you can choose from a huge variety of mix-ins to personalize your candy bar. They range from ordinary things like nuts and candy to more adventurous choices (wasabi peas, beef jerky, mini chipotles, etc.). I think these bars could be great in so many contexts – birthday gifts, party favors, etc. They also have a list of popular flavor combinations in case you’re not in the mood to create.
I was totally overwhelmed when choosing my chocolate bars because there are just so many choices! Eventually I decided on these two. One is a milk chocolate bar with dried strawberries, blueberries and raspberries because I absolutely love dried fruit. The other is a dark chocolate bar with M&Ms, Nerds, Oreos, Sour Patch Kids and strawberry Gushers (remember Gushers?!) I totally let my inner child come out while designing this bar and tried to combine all my favorite childhood treats in one candy bar. I loved both of my creations, and had so much fun designing them.
