Awesome!!

I absolutely love this candy. I have reordered several times. I enjoy most of the other flavors too. I recommend ordering the box with all the different kinds and sampling to find your favorite. This is amazing with the smokiness and sweetness from the maple bacon.

These chocolate bars are so amazing and delicious! The pods are also very satisfying--one is really enough. The Firecracker flavor is unique with it's Pop Rocks-style sizzle, plus with the touch of heat--it is the perfect sweet/salty treat. There are great for yourself or as a gift.

I really enjoyed this chocolate bar. It's small but just enough to satisfy when you get a craving for something chocolate. My bar had little bits of crunch in it and was so yummy. I normally prefer dark cocoa but this milk chocolate was super yummy & creamy. The combo of flavor was delish!!
