Chex Mix Turtle Bars

I recently received a sample of Chex Mix Turtle Bars in the mail. The package promised a mix of wheat Chex, chocolate, peanuts and pretzels. It also proclaimed "good source of whole grains."

The Chex bars had a honey-nut smell. They were very sticky. The bars stuck to the bottom of the package, due to puddles of caramel. Each bar looked fairly like the package picture, except for the lack of chocolate chunks.

The turtle bars had plenty of peanuts, caramel and cereal, a small amount of pretzels and only 1-3 candy coated pieces. The taste was like a poor knock-off of a Butterfinger bar. It was not satisfying to eat at all. There was a sore lack of sweetness or saltiness. The pretzels were overpowered by the honey, caramel and cereal.There was not enough chocolate, either.

Hershey's Take Five bar is a tastier alternative to this product. I wouldn't recommend Chex Mix Turtle Bars to any of you.
