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.)

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.

  1. I like the traditional “Chex Mix!”
    Their recipe for “Peanut Butter Pie” sounds and looks delicious. Please enter me in your drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

  2. We tend to make and eat a lot of Chex® Muddy Buddies. My kids love to make it and we all love to eat it. A quick and delicious snack.

  4. YUM! I like to make the muddy buddies..you know use the original chex mix…cover them in chocolate and powdered sugar! We usually only make it around christmas time..which will be soon! YAY!

  5. Shoot I just like the plain old corn chex any time of day or night. I’m too lazy to cook these days 🙂 but I just might have to try those muddy buddies everyone keeps talking about.


  6. My favorite is a Chew Mix we make for the holidays. Reminds me of my grandmother’s house! Yum! I also like “Puppy Chow” when I want something sweet.

  7. 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!

  8. I love Chex Mix. I would say I like the homemade version best, but the bagged version tastes just as good. My husband tries to push the cheddar version, but I love the original best!
