Funley’s is launching their Stix in the Mud in Walgreens stores throughout Chicago. They are whole grain cookie bits covered in pure milk chocolate or a milk/dark chocolate blend and come in Original, Caramel and Peanut Butter. These candy pieces have the taste kids love and benefits moms feel good about- the perfect better-for-you chocolate for Halloween!

The original Stix in the Mud is a homemade recipe and 100% Natural. These cookie clusters are a blend of pure milk & dark chocolate with crunchy, savory whole grain flour cookie bits inside giving you a salty-sweet delicious treat! It’s a better-for-you choice than other chocolate candy. Individually wrapped for portion control.

The Peanut Butter Stix in the Mud is another homemade recipe and 100% Natural. These cookie clusters are made of creamy natural peanut butter mixed with crunchy, savory whole grain flour cookie bits covered in pure milk chocolate giving you a salty-sweet delicious treat! It’s a better-for-you choice than other chocolate candy on the market. It is also individually wrapped for self control! This one is my favorite one!

Lastly, there is the Caramel Stix in the Mud. These cookie clusters are made of chewy caramel mixed with crunchy, savory whole grain flour cookie bits covered in pure milk chocolate giving you a delicious treat! The one is Bill’s favorite.

My kids loved all 3. These are a great way to curb your chocolate craving in a bite size bite! We really liked these, so I can only highly recommend!
