dark chocolate chex mix

My newest favorite snack: dark chocolate chex mix.
I normally try to stay away from purchasing snack foods (chips, cookies, etc), but this is quite delicious. I normally do not care for the savory chex mixes because they are salty and have peanuts and too many pretzels. But this mix does not contain peanuts and there are only a few dark chocolate covered pretzels.
The only downside to the product is that 2/3 cup is a 140-Calorie serving. And chex pieces are kind of bulky so 2/3 cup is not a lot. I do not eat the mini chocolate pieces so hopefully I lower the Calorie content per serving by throwing those pieces out

Have you ever used carob in place of chocolate?
I know many people avoid carob, but I find that the trick is to find the right brand and then you'll really see that carob can be (almost) as good as chocolate.

The brand I use is from Holy Food Imports,
which comes from Israel, so it does have an excellent and unique taste.
