We’re a snack-loving family. All three of my sons, my daughter and my husband descend on my kitchen after grocery-shopping day like a swarm of locusts, leaving empty boxes and chip bags in their wake. Everyone has their favorites which is why my grocery shopping bill runs about $250 weekly. It’s tough to find one snack that everyone in the house enjoys. We go through a gross ton of cereal in our house. Not only do we eat it for breakfast, but everyone loves a bowl in the evening after dinner, before bed. Snack bars are also a big hit; they’re portable for those on-the-go breakfasts when I hit the snooze button one too many times…again..and they’re great for lunches. But what about a combination of both, with a little extra sweetness mixed in?
MyBlogSpark.com sent me three boxes of the new Chex Mix Bars to try, Turtle flavored. With my daughter home from school and two sons home from college, we flew through three boxes in a week flat. I came home one day to find a my daughter and son playing Xbox with a pile of Turtle Chex Mix wrappers on the living room table, they claimed “the dogs” ate them but we all know better. I sincerely doubt the dogs even got a whiff.
Chex mix bars combine Chex cereal, pretzels, and peanuts with ingredients like caramel and chocolate. I like the fact that a bar is only 130 calories and 8 grams of whole grains, making it the perfect Weight Watchers snack when I come home from work and I‘m looking to unwind. One Turtle Chex Mix Bar is only 2 Weight Watchers points. The Turtle Chex Mix Bars were a little sticky; I recommend keeping it in the wrapper while you snack.
MyBlogSpark has offered three lucky readers the chance to each win two boxes of new Chex Mix Bars, so you can try them yourself.
