There are some snacks that I see on the shelf that I pass up because they don’t initially grab me. Strawberry yogurt Chex was definitely one of those items, however the other day when I was scanning the chip aisle for something to snack on, these called out to me. Some people lean towards sweet flavors, some lean toward salty, but I personally take up every lane and will eat both (and bonus points for something that is sweet AND salty!)
I poured myself a small bowl and immediately noticed that every piece of cereal in the bag is covered with a fine coating of flavor. This flavoring is sweet with a tangy strawberry undertone with the actual yogurt covered Chex carrying most of the strawberry flavoring on it’s shoulders. I liked the flavoring of the coating, however I feel that the cereal choice for the bulk of this snack is completely off base. Using corn Chex completely steamrolls all of the tasty flavors in this bag. If you have ever had corn Chex, you know that the flavoring is quite prominent. The delicate sweet strawberry coating is quickly lost in the corn flavoring. Simply put, this has WAY TOO MANY corn Chex in it. I would have been completely cool if they used all rice Chex as I feel this is a little more forgiving flavor to deliver a different flavor on.
Secondly, despite the picture on the bag, the amount of yogurt Chex is pretty low, and truthfully the best part of the bag. The rest of the plain Chex are really just filler and I found myself actively looking for the yogurt ones. I would be more apt to buy this again if it was just a bag of the yogurt covered Chex, and nothing else. Heck, I would even pay more just to have those. The yogurt is creamy and sweet and compliments the strawberry flavor nicely. Overall, I think this snack was pretty middle of the road. I definitely do not see myself buying this again due to the abundance of corn Chex, but the flavor profile in general is pretty good. Worth a try but not worth a second buy.
