I was recently given the opportunity to try out Chex Mix bars from My Blog Spark and General Mills. I can’t say that they are my favorite (that’s another General Mills bar) but they were good. My kids however would say that they were a favorite. I made the mistake of explaining that they had cereal in them so one of my “too smart for their own good” 4 year olds decided that this made it an acceptable request for breakfast every morning. I didn’t know what to say at first but then re-read the information sent with them:
they have less than 150 calories per bar and provide at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving (48 grams recommended daily)
The whole grains won me over and I decided this might be better for her than another more sugary breakfast option with no whole grains. She was victorious and ate enjoyed breakfast wholeheartedly until the box was gone. (Don’t worry breakfast also includes yogurt and fruit most mornings). I’m also glad for her that Chex Mix bars are part of the Mage sale this week at Kroger.
Back to us adults though, this is really a great snack option if you crave sweets or chocolate. Get your fix and stay healthy at the same time! I like guilt-free treats.
