Never heard of it but it looks SO GOOD. It is primarily an American thing or am I just extremely sheltered?

Never heard of it either. If I weren't allergic to peanuts and chocolate, lolol.

So I tried to make a "healthier" version yesterday and it didn't work.

First mistake - whole wheat chex is AWFUL. I haven't bought cereal in years and I'm pretty sure the chex pieces are a quarter of the size they used to be and it tasted too chewy or something
- I used vanilla pudding mix (fat & sugar free or something) instead of powdered sugar -- one large box was not enough and it didn't do anything

Other than that I used unsweetened baking chocolate, regular peanut butter & Splenda

I threw it all away & now I want the real stuff!!!!! :P

I made some last night! I never actually made it before, I just moochedoff other people's stash But it's actually REALLY easy to make, especially with Sizzle's recipe. I did use WAYYY too much powdered sugar and probably too much peanut butter, but it's still good (I ended up throwing it all in a colander and shaking it around to get the excess sugar off).

I've been brainstorming a dog-friendly version. Peanut butter and...carob? And rice chex, and maybe rice flour coating? Not grain-free, but at least corn-and-wheat free.

I used rice chex because it sounded better than the other options (though chocolate chex was a close second...). Actually it was generic rice chex, known as Rice Bitz. Sadly, not Rice Blitz, like I first thought

I've never made it, but I've definitely eaten it. It's delicious.

Somehow the club ate about... eight pounds of puppy chow today. Even Aryn (super-paleo poster child) took home an entire tub of it... after texting me repeatedly about how much was left.

I love watching people eat puppy chow. We all know it's SO bad for us, but we cannot stop.

Puppy chow, yumm! I like it, but I can't eat much of it as it makes my throat scratchy!

Okay, I've honestly NEVER heard it called "puppy chow" before, we always called it Muddy Buddies (because that's what the recipe on the box calls it). Home-made is the only way here, because commercial confectioners sugar is FULL of corn starch, so I make my own powdered sugar in a blender, and only use rice chex (or similar store name brand).
