Chex Mix Turtle Bars - Review and Giveaway

****This contest is Closed. Thanks for all the Entries.****

Their Information:

Satisfy your craving with caramel, chocolate, peanuts, wheat and corn Chex cereal and pretzels. With less than 150 calories, a good source of fiber and at least 8 grams of whole grains per serving it’s the perfect treat when you’re craving something sweet.

For Your Information:

I am a member of "My Blog Spark" and they have given me the opportunity to review products through them. Here is my first:


My Review:

Okay, I am going to be totally honest. I hate chewy bars. There, I said it!

So, to be fair to Chex and to you, my readers, I had my son, Cody, and two of his friends give them a try. Now three young men, 18 and 19 years old, gave me their honest reviews, but it was funny. You ask a teen to tell you about an item, using descriptive words and phrases fit for a blog........

Their Reviews:

"Hmmm.... these are good."

Me: "Okay, but tell me about them. How do they taste? The texture (yes, I asked)? Give me something.

"They're chewy."


"Lots of caramel."

"Maybe too much caramel."

"They're good though."

And all 3 agreed, "They sure make you thirsty."

So, there you have it. Overall, I'm going to say that they are good, chewy, have lots of caramel and they make you thirsty."

They loved them.

The Giveaway:

I have been given the opportunity to share the Chex Mix Turtle Bars with (3) of my followers. Each winner will receive (2) boxes to try for themselves.

Make sure that I can either follow your link to you or that you have an e-mail address, twitter id....something so I can find you. I have had to pick a second winner on each of my giveaways so far due to not knowing who they were or how to contact them. Sorry!

I love these! They're so yummy and yes they do make you very thirsty it's b/c of all that salt but they're still yummy :)

My favorite snack are the nature valley bars the regular ones in the green box.

My favorite treat is sour cream and onion potato chips with fresh sour cream as a dip.

I don't do it very often, because of the personal guilt trip...but yum.

Mandala Michelle said...

I love to snack but I think my current fav are fresh mangos. If want something junky then chips and dip would be my ultimate but I literally never have it around. I don't think I've let myself have it in the house for over a year!

My favorite snack time treat is light butter popcorn (especially with Kernel Season's seasonings). It's low calorie, but high sodium, but it's a good source of fiber, so it's not a bad snack!

Lindsay said...

My favorite snack to eat is kettle corn!!! MMMM it is both sweet and salty, I just can't get enough! :)
