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 winner cannot be contacted, I will move on to the second random selection.

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.
