|Mahalo chocolate coconut almond vegan candy bars|
At the last potluck, there was a couple who explained how the husband was able to re-create vegan versions of different candy bars to surprise his wife on her birthday. We were all quite impressed (and a little jealous), and I remember thinking the one candy bar I would like to try someday is a vegan Almond Joy. There is definitely something about the combination of chocolate, coconut, and almond that appeals to my sweet tooth.
Then, a couple of weeks later, my husband and I were at Terra Organica at the Public Market when these Mahalo bars jumped right out at us. Strategically placed on the checkout aisle, and on sale for a mere 99 cents a bar, I could not resist. ( I think they normally cost two or three times as much, but as a rare treat, the price would still be worth it to me).

Made with rice milk instead of dairy, the chocolate coating was absolutely delicious, and the coconut filling was even more fantastic than I had imagined it would be. This candy bar was better than any Almond Joy I had ever tasted, and the next time I was at the store picking up my produce, I had to grab a few more. While there are other flavors, I stuck with the Mahalo since I already knew it would be my favorite.
Amazing and dangerously addictive, Mahalo bars are made by the vegan company Go Max Go, and available in Bellingham at Terra Organica. So now husbands everywhere can surprise their vegan wives with candy on their birthdays! (And there's nothing stopping wives from surprising their husbands too.)
