Cocoa Pete’s Maltimus Maximus
Name: Maltimus Maximus
I love malt. I love really good malted milk balls. I will buy Ovaltine and eat it by the spoonful.
I saw this candy bar while walking around on a rainy night in New York and thought, “this is the candy bar for me!”
Oh, it isn’t. It’s clever. It’s cute, but lacks the real malt punch that I desire. It’s made by Cocoa Pete’s Chocolate Bars, they guy who says that he brought us Pete’s Wicked Ale. This is a guy who should know malt!
Opening the package it is a bar divided into four domes that can easily be broken off for easy consumage. Two domes equals one serving. It is a nice, if a little sweet milk chocolate with malt crunchies throughout. No matter which way I ate it (sucking on it until the chocolate melted away and left me with the malty bits) or crunching it down I never got that malty taste.
This is not the malt bar for me (I’m not even sure malt bars exist), but I’m willing to give his other bars a try. They’re a little pricey.

Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
