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.
