    Honestly, I think I would want one of each. Well ok maybe all of them but Snap! and two Twilights instead. Yay for international giveaways!

  2. Amber G.

    Awesome giveaway! If I won I would choose seven of the Thumbs Up bars! I have not had a chance to try them and have had a hard time finding them, so would love the opportunity to stockpile some as I think they might be my new favorite Go Max Go bar (but I don’t know because I haven’t tried them…)!

  3. Tait

    Buccaneer, Twilight, Snap!, Cleo’s, Buccaneer, Buccaneer and Buccaneer.

  4. Colleen R. Gray-Mackey

    I would want of each so I could decide which was my favorite. Then I would eat them all and decide that they were all my favorite.

  5. Chelsey

    Oh goodness!

    Since my trip to the US in November, I’ve really been craving Thumbs Up bars like nothing else. Sooo I guess my selection would be:

    3 x Thumbs Up
    1 x Cleo’s
    2 x Jokerz

    I’m getting hungry just thinking about them!


  6. Sarah

    This is so hard. I love the jokerz bar so would have to get three of them, a Mahalo, Twilight, Buccaneer and would want a Thumbs Up as haven’t tried that one yet. I feel bad for the ones I left out πŸ™ I love them all.

  7. Alexia Reedy

    How can anybody choose one favourite?! I’d definitely have to try one of each, they all sound amazing

  8. Stacy

    I love them all, but the Jokerz are my favorite so definitely two of those and one of everything else except Snap.

  9. Beth

    I would love one of each! I’ve only tried the Twilight and Jokerz and I need to try the rest!! Plus, those two were pretty yummy.

  10. Beth

    Well now I HAVE to get a couple of Mahalo bars!
    2 Mahalo Bars
    1 Snap bar
    2 Thumbs Up bars
    2 Jokerz bars

  11. Martina W.

    I’d choose two Twilights, two Buccaneers, two Cleo’ss ^^ and one Thumbs Up!

  12. Millie Kenney

    Jokerz, Jokerz, Jokerz, Jokerz, Jokerz, Jokerz, and . . . ummmm. . . JOKERZ. . . .

  13. Mike R.

    Hmmm….two each of Buccaneers and Jokerz and three Twilights if you please πŸ™‚

  14. Beth Marshall

    Oh my goodness I would take one of each because I need ALL of the Go Max Goodness!!!!!!

  15. Sarah Dill

    Definitely all Buccaneers. I’ve been craving one since my local Fresh Market stopped carrying them after halloween 2012.

  16. Jojo

    OMG SEVEN Go Max Bars?! Seven! Um, I’d get six Jokerz bars to make my Operation Icing Jokerz bar cupcakes with (Yay! Money for animals!) and then I’d get a Twilight bar to help power me through the baking!

  17. Jessica W

    Love them all, but if I had to choose, I’d pick – 3 mahalos, 2 Cleo’s, 2 jokerz

  18. Jessica W.

    I love them all but if I had to choose, I’d pick – 3 Mahalos, 2 Cleo’s, and 2 Jokerz

  19. Jerrika Walker

    3 Twilights and 2 Jokerz, plus 2 Buccaneers because I haven’t been able to find it anywhere! Great giveaway; being vegan these are one of my favorite savory snacks!

  20. Kendra

    1 jokerz, 1 twilight, 1 thumbs up, 4 buccaneer. Or maybe 7 buccaneer…

  21. Monica

    2 Twilight, 2 Mahalo, 2 Thumbs Up, and a Cleos! I thought I didn’t like Mars bars in the past. Twilight’s made me realise how good caramel is!

  22. Claire

    So much sugar, I want it! If I won I’d probably want 3 Thumbs Up! because I haven’t tried them yet and 3 should give my family a decent taste, also 2 Jokerz which are never in stock at my local stores but I love them, and then 2 Twilights because I’m a sucker for caramel. Thanks!

  23. Ashley Alexander

    Thumb’s Up, Cleo’s, Snap!, Jokerz, Buccaneer, Twilight, and a Mahalo! Yup one of each, Please!!!

  24. Apryl

    Love these candies! I’d probably get a couple each of Thumbs Up, Jokers, Mahalos, and a buccaneer. Yummy!

  25. Tami

    2 Snap!
    1 Twilight,
    2 Mahalo. πŸ™‚

  26. Patti

    Twilight, Mahalo, Snap, Buccaneer, Twilight, Twilight, Twilight πŸ˜‰

  27. Julie Levenhagen

    Hmmm… I would have to go with 2 Thumbs Up, 1 Cleo, 2 Twilight, 1 Bucccaneer, and 1 mahalo.
    Now I have a major chocolate craving! Fingers crossed!

  28. Crystal Tremblay

    Since Thumbs Up and Snap! are the hardest for me to find, it would have to be 4 and 3, respectively.

  29. Lea J.

    Wow…first off, I had no idea tj’s had vegan crescent rolls…buying!! Second, thanks for the give away opportunity. I’d pick 2 jokerz, 2 cleos, 2 thumbs-ups, and a mahalo, for good measure. And by the way, 8 puffs in my house would last one day, if I were lucky. πŸ˜‰

  30. Lauren

    1. Thumb’s up
    1. Cleo’s
    1. SNAP
    1. jokers
    1. Buccaneer
    1. Twilight
    1. Mahalo
    … I’ve been deprived and would love to try them all!!

  31. Crystal

    I’m an equal opportunist, so I’d get one of each. Plus, here in Canada it’s hard to come by some of the flavours!

  32. Sharon

    Do I have to choose? I love them all but snap is my favorite! So probably 5 snap and 2 cleo!

  33. Jonathan

    Mahalo, Thumbs Up!, Jokerz, Buccaneer, Cleo’s, Twilight, Snap!, and another Mahalo for good measure.

  34. Korie B

    Can I pick all Jokerz? LOL Ok. I’ll take one of each to be fair and not seem greedy πŸ˜‰

  36. Monica Kelly

    I would love one of each please! Yay for giveaways of my fave bars ..mmmmmmmm

  37. Rachel Gibbs

    I would love one of each !! Send them to bonny Scotland so I can relish the amazingness of each one !!:-)

  38. Kristen

    That is hard decision. I don’t like coconut or peanuts in my dessert, so I would do 1 Thumbs up, 1 Snap, 2 Cleos, 1 Buccaneer & 2 Twilights.

  39. sbc

    I know they’ve been working on making more flavors gf because they’re awesome. So I’d have 7 of whichever ones those are. Yum.

  40. Ariel

    If you win seven Go Max Go Candy Bars, what flavors will they be?

    They will be the cleos and the Twilight. I love the Twilight!!

  41. Marta

    I’d definitely want one of each, so that I know exactly what I’m missing out on out here

  42. Sierra

    I’d have to take one of each although Cleos are the greatest candy invention ever!

  43. Scott

    2 Mahalo so I can make this recipe, then 2 Cleo’s, 2 Jokerz & 1 Thumbs Up please and thank you.

  44. sylvi shayl

    Mouthwatering. Oh Jokerz 1, Buccaneer -2, Twilight-2, Mahalo-2. Mind you they all sound delicious and look divine!

  45. Rita Correia

    Three snaps for the husband, three mahalos for me the wifey and a secret jokerz to hide in the pantry and eat in desperate times!

  46. Cassie

    Oh my goodness!
    2 Twilight, 2 Buccaneer, 1 Jokerz, 1 Mahalo and 1 Cleo!!!

  47. Rachel H

    Ooh, international you say?

    I’m not a fan of coconut, and I’m allergic to peanuts, so I’d go for 2 each of the Snap and Buccaneer and 3 of the Twilight.

  48. Christina

    2- Buccaneers to make the brownies
    2- Mahalos to make the puffs
    2- Twilight’s to eat!
    1- Jokerz to share πŸ˜‰

  49. Robert

    Even if it may be too late (?! damn time zones πŸ™‚ : i’d take one of each. Cleo’s Peanutbutter Cups because i know they are great and the others to give them a try.

  50. Tabitha

    Oh too hard to choose! Could I just have one of each because it’s impossible to go wrong with any of them? πŸ™‚
