OCHO Candy Bars - Review and Giveaway

It seems every time I turn on the news, I hear something horrible about what's being done to the foods Americans eat. Pesticides and genetic changes and bacteria. UGH. Sometimes it almost makes me want to stop eating. Almost. It does make me more aware of what I am eating and makes me more careful about what I buy for myself and my family to eat. If you are what you eat, then I'm now sweet as candy!
OCHO Candy Bars are made from organic ingredients. They are certified orangic by CCOF and reading the ingredients on the packaging, everything in them is organic. Candy is one of the things everyone eats at some time or another. Convenience stores have entire aisles of candy bars, filled with preservatives, additives, and artificial flavors. You won't find any of those in OCHO Candy Bars!
I tried all four flavors of OCHO Candy Bars. No I didn't eat all four bars in one sitting. I took one bite of each and saved the rest for my teens. They are all amazing! They are so delicious! I was really tempted to eat more than one bite of each, but I wanted to see what the rest of my family thought about them.
My husband said, "Wow, that's great!" John said, "Oh, that's really good!" Ryan said, "Can I have another one?" It feels good to give my family foods that are good for them. There is a Chocolate Covered Coconut candy bar, a Chocolate Covered Mocha candy bar, a Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter candy bar, and a Chocolate Covered Caramel and Peanut candy bar.
If I was forced to pick a favorite one, it would be the Peanut Butter one, but they are all absolutely delicious. Johnny's favorite was the Coconut Bar. I highly recommend OCHO Candy Bars!!! You can purchase them online and they will soon be coming to a store near you. Connect with them on Facebook and Twitter too.
Disclosure: I received these products at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
