Go Max Go Vegan Dairy Free Candy Bars Giveaway

UPDATE:  The winner is domestic diva    [email protected]  Congratulations!

A few months ago we experimented with taking dairy out of my daughter’s diet to see if that was the cause of her extreme constipation and lack of weight gain.  Sure enough, when we removed all dairy from her diet, both of those problems cleared up.  In January my 2.5 year old only weighed 24 pounds.  Now, in April, she is up to 26 pounds.

For the most part, the transition to a dairy free diet has been fairly easy for her.  She feels so much better, even when others are eating her old favorite, macaroni and cheese, she has no trouble resisting.

I have been dairy free myself since last August, so I had a great deal of knowledge of what she could and could not eat.  If I did not have this knowledge, transitioning her might have been difficult, especially during holidays like Easter.  However, I had the opportunity to review Go Max Go vegan candy bars (see my full review here), so I know first hand that they are delicious.  If they weren’t marked as dairy free, I never would have believed it.  They are as tasty (I think even tastier) than regular candy bars. 

This year, my son, who is not dairy free, and my daughter both will be receiving Go Max Go candy bars in their Easter baskets.  They won’t be disappointed!

The Giveaway:

Go Max Go Foods has graciously agreed to give one lucky winner a sample pack of the four candy bars pictured above. 

To enter, either go to the Go Max Go Foods site and leave a comment here tell me one thing you learned OR leave a comment telling me how you typically find out about new products on the market.

Additional methods of entry:
-Like Go Max Go Foods on Twitter

-Follow Mom’s Plans via RSS feed or Google Friend Connect or let me know that you already do

-Follow Mom’s Plans on Twitter

-Follow Mom’s Plans on Facebook

This giveaway will end on April 25, 2011 at 11:59 p.m.  The winner will be chosen via random.org.

Please note–These bars are great for people who are dairy intolerant but not necessarily dairy allergic because they are manufactured in a shared facility that does process dairy items.  Go Max Go bars are manufactured on dedicated days that dairy is not used.  However, there is the possibility of cross contamination as equipment is shared.

Comments

  1. Experimenting with my own daughter’s intolerances is how I find out about new products. We have also dealt with low weight gain and funky poo habits. We are still experimenting and learning as we go, but hopefully our next dr. appointment will yield good news for her weight (we weren’t even at 20lbs at her 15mth- not even big enough to be front facing in the car yet!). Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

  2. I learned that Go Max Go is adding two new flavors to their entirely cruelty-free line of candy bars!

  3. I like Go Max Go Foods on Twitter @adthomas.

  24. Interesting, and these seem to be good, healthy choices. Vegan and dairly free, yet maybe tasting better than regular candy bars, seems like a pretty good deal!

    In terms of how I find out about new products, it’s usually through one of the following:

    1) Seeing them in a store
    2) Reading about them online
    3) Getting a recommendation

  25. I find new products by looking in the store and by running across them in the internet–like here. Never heard of these bars before.

  38. I am a dairy allergic ADULT (and no, I’m not lactose-intolerant). I appreciate companies who can help those of us out so we can have treats TOO! Additionally – I do appreciate the promotion of sustainability, fair labor and environmental stewardship.

  39. I went to their website, and found out where to buy them in my area. I’m always on the look out for vegan products, and I’m a little surprised I hadn’t heard of them yet. Though it makes sense, as they aren’t at the usual stores I shop at!

    That goes along with your other question–I generally notice new products by seeing them at the store, or otherwise through ads/word of mouth.
