A Turtle Walked into a Bar

A Turtle Walked into a Bar


I haven’t figured out why my mornings are so chaotic, but I think it has something to do with having a kindergartner that doesn’t move very fast in the mornings.  After getting her off to school, I grab a quick yogurt or piece of fruit before hitting the gym, but my favorite thing is to just steal one of the kids’ granola bars.  I can take a bite and set it down then come back to it or I can just carry it with me and snack on the go.Thanks to a blog tour by MyBlogSpark, I had the opportunity to try the new Chex Mix Bars.  I received a gift pack that included the Turtle flavor, but it also comes in Chocolate Chunk.  Since I haven’t met turtle flavored anything that I haven’t loved, it wasn’t much of a stretch for me to really enjoy these.  They’re sweet and gooey and taste more like a snack food than a whole grain product.  The Turtle Chex Mix Bars are caramel-covered Corn Chex, Wheat Chex pieces, chocolate, peanuts and pretzels.  Need I say more?  Fine, I will… Each bar has 130 calories and 4g of dietary fiber.  (Click the picture to view the nutritional facts for yourself.)

If you think this is your kind of product, you can sign up for Betty Crocker’s newsletter and receive a free sample in the mail! If you already know that you like them, grab a 35 count box at Amazon!  Either way, leave a comment to win them!  Here’s the scoop on the giveaway…

The Prize(s)

“Basket of Indulgence” from Chex Mix Bars.  Gift basket includes: a box of tasty Turtle Chex Mix Bars to sample, chocolate candles, caramel lotion and spa essentials like a loofah, hand massager, nail brush and spa towel.  Three Winners!


Participants –

…must provide a United States shipping address
…must provide an email in the first comment, email me directly with an email address or have email accessible from their profile. Winner has 72 hours from posting/notification to respond.  If winner cannot be contacted, I will move on to the second random selection.  Seriously, I hate having to move on to the runner-up and since I haven’t gotten the PrizeyWinners thing to work, please make sure that you provide an email somehow.

Sometime on November 18th, a winner will be chosen at random (using random.org) from all comments left. Although I would love to say that I’ll be using PRIZEYWinners, I can’t be sure since I haven’t been able to figure out how to do it yet!  (Honestly, I’m about to throw in the towel.)

How to enter: (CONTEST CLOSED)

And just so I don’t leave you hanging about the title of this post… A turtle walked into a bar and said “I’m here to mix with the Chex.”  Get it? Turtle, Chex (chicks), Mix, Bar.  It works, right?  Yeah, there’s a reason I don’t write comedy bits.  Go leave a comment for the drawing, no bad jokes required to enter.

  22. Kristie says:

    I love chex all sorts of ways-just with milk, for a snack, as Chex Mix and Puppy chow. I think my favorite way is a recipe my mom makes for Christmas. She mixes chex, M&M's, peanuts and pretzels all together with melted white chocolate and lets it cool. Not sure what it's called, but it's delicious!
