When I went shopping at the grocery store, they had coupons hanging up on the aisles. I picked up a $1 off coupon for Chex Mix Bars and decided to try them out. They were only $2.99 so this made them $1.99. The package has six bars in it that are each 1.2 oz. That makes them only about 33 cents each which is a great deal to me. I got the Turtle flavor because you can’t go wrong with chocolate and caramel together.
Each bar contains 130 calories and 30 come from fat. They each have 3.5g of total fat, 170mg sodium, and 26g carbohydrate. They also have 11g of sugar. These are not the most nutritious when you look at sugar content. This is great in calories for me though. I only eat this when I am really craving something chocolate. When you consider that a candy bar, has 250-350 calories usually you are doing a lot better with this bar. They also contain 8g or more of whole grains per serving. That is always a good thing. It does contain wheat, peanut, milk, and soy products if you have allergies.
These are a great snack. They have the perfect mix of sweet and salty. You can taste the chocolate and caramel in every bite. There is a lot of caramel so much that they are a bit gooey. I even left some on the wrapper, so that means I saved about five calories right? This is very sweet. If you do not like sweet snacks, this is not for you. I don’t think you would buy it in the first place though if you don’t want a bit of sugar in your snack. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a lower calorie substitute to a candy bar. These are great and I will be trying other flavors soon as well.
