ChocCreate - Chocolate Review and Giveaway



There's two different kinds of chocolate. The first is yeah-it-tastes-okay-and-fulfills-the-craving chocolate. The second is ooh-ooh-oh-my-I-don't-want-to-share-it-tastes-so-good chocolate. The chocolate from ChocCreate is the latter.


ChocCreate is an online company that gives you, the consumer, the option to decide what you want in your candy bar. The list of ingredients within five different categories lets you indulge in chocolate in a whole new way.

To create a custom candy bar, the first step is to choose from dark, white, or milk chocolate. From there, you choose the ingredients you'd like added to make a creation all your own.

I chose two different candy bars to create. The process in itself is simple and the list of ingredients to choose from is ample. I found it helpful that each ingredient has the price listed so you know exactly how much you are spending on each candy bar and its additions.


The first candy bar I customized and received was a 3.5 oz milk chocolate bar with marshmallows, teddy grahams, and gummi bears. The second was a 3.5 oz dark chocolate bar with corn flakes, sunflower seeds, and pecan nuts.

Seriously, the candy bars with no additions are divine. The gourmet German chocolate that they are created from is heavenly. The dark chocolate bar has a rich flavor and I was able to savor it for days. Just taking a couple bites at a time was satisfying. With the dark chocolate bar, the different flavors together gave a nice, crunchy texture. With the milk chocolate bar, the crunchiness of the Teddy Grahams and the fluff of the marshmallows gave a delightful blend of taste. The gummi bears tasted good in the bar as well, but they were a little chewy.


When purchasing individual ingredients for your candy bar, there isn't a clear specification on how much of each specific item will be added. However, it seems that a pattern is played out when the candy bar arrives. ChocCreate delved deep into my taste buds and gave me sweet treats to savor and remember.

This sounds totally fun!

I'd probably go with the milk chocolate, with sea salt, marshmallows, and pine nuts. (Why don't they have anything caramel?)

Thanks for the chance to win!
