Chocomize Review

I like to think that I've become somewhat of a chocolate connoisseur over the years, especially since my sister moved to Switzerland and was constantly sending home the good stuff. 
When Chocomize offered me a chance to customize chocolate bars and have them sent to review, I was very excited. I asked them if I could create 3 bars, featuring each of their chocolate types as a base. 

When I visited their website, I was shocked by all of the different items you can add to your bar to make it perfectly fit your taste. In fact, I spent about half an hour mixing and matching flavors to create the perfect bars! 

It only took about a week for the chocolate bars to arrive at my house! They were packed in cold packs, but the Florida heat caused them to melt anyway. 

I created the first chocolate bar to suit my tastes. I love a good, creamy milk chocolate, so that way my base. I then topped it with dried raspberries, toffee, cashew pieces, and teddy grahams. 
The chocolate was delicious, definitely high quality, buttery, sweet and milky. They were not skimpy with the add-ins at all, and I loved the look of the little bears on the bar, too cute! 

The second bar I made with my husband in mind. He's a white chocolate fanatic, so I opted for that as the base. He also loves macadamia nuts, so I took his bar in a tropical direction and added dried mango, pineapple and coconut. The flavors melded perfectly, the chocolate was creamy, the nuts added great contrast and crunch.

The final bar I made with my sister in mind to taste. She's a chocoholic as well, and was so excited when I showed her the website. She gave me her topping requests, which were pecans, cranberries, chocolate chips and pretzels. We'll be sampling this one together soon, but it looks great! 

Thank you so much to Chocomize for allowing me to create and taste my personalized chocolate bars!

I will have to check out the website. My husband loves white chocolate as well, he will eat the other stuff but white is his favorite.
