Chocolate Chex Mix

Chex Mix has to be one of the dumbest products in the world. Who can’t buy a box of Life and add peanuts? But General Mills sez it’s the #1 warehouse snack (whatever that means) at conv stores (tho the shelf space required to house its 12 flavors - cheddar, party blend, hot n spicy etc - may have something to do w/ that ranking). Annnyway, a new flavor is sufficiently notable to merit a blog item cuz it combos salty + sweet - specifically chocolate (which beats out more generic sweet flavors such as honey), in its new Chocolate Chex Mix, in two varieties, turtle & peanut butter. btw, the choc is "candy coated milk choc pieces" (and you know what those are); for anyone who’s bought trail mix, this ain’t news.

Chex Choc is the yin and yang of snack food. Actually, the yech and yuck would be more accurate.

I've seen trail mix with chocolate chips as well as M&Ms. More like candy than health food. But these chex mixes are so easy to make at home. And you don't get all the salt and fake-tating sspices.

I'm more interested in those nuts from yesterday.

Are you sure that was "warehouse," and not "whorehouse"?

why does everyone keep trying to mess with chocolate? those old reece's commercials with the two people bumping into each other (one with a jar of p.b, one with a candy bar), used to make me nuts!! leave my chocolate alone!

What about choc and carmel, and choc and coconut, and choc and cherry, and choc and eggs?

twisted link, after all the trouble clairevoyant has given you about your spelling, you're missing an opportunity to call her on that "reece's". wouldn't you think a chocolate nut like her would know it's reese's...
