Now with Go Max Go Foods, you can have your candy (and eat it too).
Go Max Go is a company that wanted to find a way to create a much healthier alternative of candy than was the norm, that would not compromise on flavor. Their hard work paid off, and guess who benefits? You do! There are (6) different flavors to try, the first (3) of which are Gluten-Free. A 7th flavor is about to be introduced, and will be a Vegan Butterfinger-type bar (yum!) called Thumbs Up.
- Cleo's Peanut Butter Cups
- Snap! (Krisped-Rice in a milk chocolatey coating)
- Mahalo (chocolate, coconut, dry roasted almonds)
- Jokerz (peanuty-nougat bar)
- Twilight (chocolate and caramel)
- Buccaneer (fluffy nougat inside of a chocolate coating)
- Thumbs Up (Butterfinger-type bar, vegan. Coming very soon!)
My husband liked all of the ones he tried (and he's not real big on sweets), but said his favorite was hands-down the Cleo's Peanut Butter Cups. The rest of us thought the Snap! candy bars were the best (these were so good I'm considering buying some for stocking stuffing this year), but (coconut aside) we liked them all too. The flavor wasn't at all what we expected. When you hear healthier-alternative phrases and 'candy' in the same paragraph, if you're like us, you immediately think, 'Yuk! or 'Pass!' Not so with these candy bars. The taste wasn't the same as a traditional type of candy bar, it was similar, but definitely different, in a good way. There was no aftertaste like you sometimes get with candy, and the flavors were indulgent and rich. We were all in agreement that none of us felt as if we were in any way compromising on flavor with the Go Max Go candy.
Though there are (6) flavors, the only downside I see with the products is that there's not just a plain chocolate (we'll cross our fingers that they add that to their selection offerings sometime in the near future). I'd also love to see a dark chocolate (just because I love it). I cannot wait for the new flavor to come out (November), so we can try that one too!
