Choccreate Review + Giveaway!

Choccreate Review

By- Lauren

Website- Create Your Own Chocolate Bar!

I was sent three chocolate bars (of my choosing) for a review. All opinions are my own.

Choccreate is an amazing site. I was given the chance to make three bars of my choosing to review. I went with the three different types of chocolate: one milk chocolate, one dark, and one white. The milk chocolate was given m&m's and some pink baby feet. This is the bar that I gave my sister in law for her own in order to celebrate her daughter. She thought it was adorable and I was really excited to see that the m&m's were in the chocolate for the most part so you could wipe your fingers over the bar and it's not just sitting on top.

The next bar I did was dark chocolate. We added pretzels and macadamia nuts. I tried a little and thought it was pretty good, but this was mainly for my mom and she LOVED it. She thought their chocolate was amazing and really enjoyed her bar...trying to spread it out over the days to fully enjoy. She'll definitely be wanting to order more in the future.

As for me, I took white chocolate and added marshmallows and rice crispies. I figured it might give it a slight Rice Krispie treat feel. While I haven't finished mine yet, I really enjoy it...and I agree that the chocolate is YUMMY. I definitely don't think people will have problems with theirs if they decide to make a bar. It's very good quality...no cheap stuff here.

Plus, the prices aren't that bad. Each chocolate bar is $3.95 no matter what type of chocolate you choose. The price goes up depending on what items you decide to add. They have everything from blueberries to cashew nuts to dried rose petals to gummi bears to coarse sea salt to baby feet or mini hearts. These all vary in pricing, so if you want to limit what you spend...find the cheaper items...or stay simple and only add one or two toppings.

While we didn't go crazy on our bars with what we added, we did try and add a couple different things. So far, it worked out. I'd love to go crazy wild on a bar in the future though so I can try out some of the more interesting options.

Basically...check out this site. It's an amazingly fun experience designing your own chocolate and it would make a FAB gift for yourself or someone else. PLUS, it's much cheaper than you may think at first!

I'd create a chocolate bar with lots of nuts! I went to the site and there are lots of nutty options...Pecans are my all-time favorite, though. And, I like milk chocolate the best. Maybe I'd throw some raisins in for good measure!

Thanks for the giveaway!
