Chex Mix Turtle Bars


Thanks to My Blog Spark, I was able to try Chex Mix Bars in the Turtles variety. Now, I am a candy fiend, I love pretty much any candy, but unfortunately that isn't conducive to a healthy lifestyle.

Fortunately (for me and you), Chex Mix Bars have less than 150 calories per bar and provide at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving! In case you didn't know, it is reccomended that a person have 48 grams of fiber daily. This is a much healthier option than a candy bar, and they leave you feeling satisified without the guilt. For those of you using the Weight Watchers program, these are only 2 points per bar! Awesome for those between meal snacks!

As for the taste, they are delicious! They can satify just about any craving with a balance of crunchy, sweet, and salty. This delicious snack combines crunchy Chex pieces, pretzels and peanuts with chewy and indulgent ingredients like caramel and chocolate. Yumm.

I will definitely be adding these to my shopping list as a healthy snack for me and my family, while the children might miss candy, I feel confidant that this is a much better alternative.

Thanks to My Blog Spark, THREE of my readers have the opportunity to win two boxes for themselves (and their family, if you can share)

Now for the rules (yes, rules are tough to live by!):
  • In order to qualify, I need you to post a comment letting me know How you unwind after a long day.

  • Please don't post " I want to win", "Great Giveaway", etc. that would make me sad because I will have to disqualify you.

  • If you don't have a blogger account, no problem! Just be sure to include your email address!

  • Last, this is very important, you need to include an email address. If you win and you don't have your email in your blogger profile or in your comment, I can't contact you and that will be sad for both of us! (I promise not to sign you up for any spam mail or anything!)

You can receive one extra entry for each of these:

  • Following me on my blog. (if you already follow just comment letting me me know!)
