Needlessly delicious giveaway

You know that yummy snack/dessert with chocolate and Chex cereal and powdered sugar? People around here call it "puppy chow," though it's definitely not one for the dogs. It makes appearances at holiday parties and scrapbook overnights. And now, on grocery store shelves!

Always looking for the next best thing, the people at Chex decided to take that yummy treat and pre-package it. They call it "Muddy Buddies" and I got a chance to try it through MyBlogSpark.

Muddy Buddies is made with corn Chex, peanut butter, chocolate and a "powdery sweet coating." (I sure hope that's a euphemism for sugar.) Like other Chex mixes, it has 50% less fat than regular potato chips, which might make you feel less guilty eating it...unless you eat the whole bag by yourself.

When my Chex Mix Muddy Buddies gift pack arrived from MyBlogSpark, I actually did share it. The gift pack included:
  • A serving bowl
  • A magnetic clip
  • An airtight OXO container
  • A bag of Muddy Buddies

PhotobucketMike, who is not a real sweets eater, said "these things are needlessly delicious." I would have agreed, but my mouth was too full of Muddy Buddies to say anything. Amazingly, we did have enough restraint to get the Muddy Buddies into the container and put away, though we didn't bother with putting them in the serving bowl. They lasted a little over 36 hours, thanks to the fact that we did not tell the kids they were there.

I have to say that I might have enjoyed the airtight container than I did the Muddy Buddies. It's in my pantry now filled with popcorn kernels.  The lid has a button you push to create the seal. Seriously, I'd buy a whole set of those containers if I could.

Now for the giveaway:

I tried some of that over the holidays, and I can assure you that it would never get a chance to leave my home because we ALL loved it.

I've never made these because my husband doesn't like peanut butter and chocolate. (I know, I know, crazy, right?) But I do. I would take them with me to Baton Rouge next month!

I'd take this to snack at work because, alas, my husband's allergic to peanut butter, so I can't share! ;-)

Julie Sherer said...

I would be sitting in the corner of my closet, behind the clothes that don 't fit me anymore, secretly eating my Muddy Buddy's!

Kathleen said...

We would take Muddy Buddies to game night (actually, we already do, as that is something Mike makes from scratch!).

I "liked" Chex Mix on Facebook, and I'm already a 4th Frog fan.

Thanks!
