Did you know the Mars candy company not only tests on animals, but allegedly has child slaves make their candy?  Their candy is GMO-full of unhealthy crap, and the last thing you want to give the sweet little punks rapping at your door.

Go Max Go has an entirely cruelty-free line of candy bars. They’re the perfect all-natural, dairy-free, and vegan versions of the old-timey favorites, and as delicious.

These candy bars are chocolatey, nougaty, caramely, peanutty, almondy, coconutty crazy indulgences! This variety of bars that pops with all the luscious flavor of the traditional treats. What we didn’t want in our candy bars was dairy, eggs, hydrogenated oils, trans fats, artificial ingredients, or cholesterol.  Now your inner angel (you know, the one who reminds you it’s gotta be vegan, or you’re dairy intolerant, or you need to kick those hydrogenated oils to the curb, etc.) can enjoy real candy bars again.

Combine great taste, good sense, sweeten with compassion, and what have you got? A Go Max Go candy bar!

You can buy them online or at these locations.  Don’t have time to pick these up? Use our guides to healthy candy options below;

  1. Oh, how I wish Go Max Go were indeed entirely cruelty free. Unfortunately, as with so many other vegan chocolate candies, their cocoa comes from plantations that use child labor. It’s an issue I wish more vegans were talking about, and it’s made me do a bit of homework before I buy chocolate. Fortunately, volunteers with a nonprofit called Food Empowerment Project (F.E.P.) have been taking the time to contact companies directly and find out where their cocoa comes from. F.E.P. even has a list of recommended companies. People can learn more at http://www.foodispower.org/slavery_chocolate.htm

    My Whole Foods stopped carrying Go Max Go bars… I’ve asked for them to be replaced, but, alas, they’re still not there…

    According to Go Max Go website, all their ingredients are sourced ethically:

    Cocoa

    The cocoa used in our rice-milk chocolatey coating (our own recipe and made just for us) is sourced from a company that promotes sustainability: encompassing fair labor (only sources where international labor standards are practiced), environmental stewardship, and providing improved economic returns for cocoa farmers. They are active in the World Cocoa Foundation and collaborate with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Rain Forest Alliance. So, while our “chocolate” isn’t certified fair trade, it is ethically sourced.

    As an aside, Fair Trade Certification is a costly and ongoing expense for a compliant company wishing to use this designation. This is why many companies sourcing ethically are not certified “Fair Trade.” Our vendor has chosen not to absorb this cost. Go Max Go has also made a decision not to assume the heavy financial burden of paying for various certifications. We understand our vendors stance and support them 100 percent.
