Chex Mix isn't a great snack in and of itself.

But when you take the Chex pieces and blast them in chocolate coating and powdery sugar, you get a snack that's downright dreadful.

One serving of Chex Mix Muddy Buddies Brownie Supreme is just 1/3rd a cup, yet that small amount packs 9 grams of sugar. 

And odds are you're eating closer to a cup anytime you reach for this snack, as a lack of fiber and protein make these the opposite of filling.

The Turtle variety of Chex Mix is another one to watch out for.
