Muddy Buddies

Muddy BuddiesWhile grocery shopping, I had to pick up a bag of Muddy Buddies by Chex. Essentially, the company has finally eliminated the middle man and is selling their cereal coated with peanut butter, chocolate and powdered sugar right out of the bag. I am a fan of puppy chow–I’d never heard it called muddy buddies before-and so picked it up.

It didn’t take long for me to eat most of the bag. Even though I thought that the peanut butter was overwhelming at first. The next times I picked up the bag, I really didn’t notice. Perhaps I acclimated or I had simply forgotten that puppy chow does include peanut butter.

I loved the amount of powdered sugar on the pieces. They’re white or nearly white, totally saturated and evenly coated. The chocolate itself is in a thin and even layer beneath the sugar. It’s a really sweet snack, if you hadn’t had it before and if you don’t have quite the sweet tooth, you probably won’t like Muddy Buddies.

Regardless, I soon came to enjoy this, until it fell on the floor. It was a sad day indeed but I will probably pick up another bag. However, Chex sells this at a price that is a bit higher than I would like to pay on a frequent basis. It’s probably cheaper just to make your own but you definitely save the mess and the effort by purchasing Muddy Buddies from the store.

So, my final vote is “Yes”–if you don’t have the time and/or have the money. Just do it quick as this is a limited edition flavour.
