The classic children’s sweet affectionately known as “Puppy Chow” (or aka Muddy Buddies for the General Mills version) is back and it’s all grown up. Chicago-based WowChow Snacks offers an authentic and original take on this childhood favorite, bringing sustainably sourced dark chocolate and pure nut butters into the mix.
Elizabeth Zellner, founder of WowChow Snacks will be joining 100+ artisans in food, fashion, home goods + art at the Chicago Artisan Market at Morgan Manufacturing (401 N. Morgan St., Chicago) on Sunday, December 2, 2018 from 10am-4pm.
How are WowChow Snacks made?
WowChow Snacks are handmade by Elizabeth and her mother, Natalie, in a Chicago area shared kitchen. They begin by coating puffed rice pockets with dark chocolate and pure nut butter. Next comes a dusting of organic powdered sugar infused with natural flavors, such as sea salt or pure fruit powder. All this makes for a light yet flavor-packed crisp with a smooth, silky finish. Sophisticated yet simple, it may literally leave you saying, “Wow!”
Try WowChow in three unique flavors:
• Dark Chocolate Sea Salt
• Almond Coconut
• Hazelnut Raspberry
Dark Chocolate Sea Salt: An authentic take on the American classic puppy chow, Dark Chocolate Sea Salt is packed with flavors of pure peanut butter and dark chocolate, a mouth watering combination. To compliment the sweet, classic flavors, they add a hint of sea salt to enhance the chocolate-peanut butter duo.
Almond Coconut: For a tropical take on the childhood inspired snack, the WowChow Almond Coconut flavor is made with pure almond butter and dark chocolate. A final dusting using coconut milk powder adds a tropical twist.
Hazelnut Raspberry: Refreshingly bright and bold, the Hazelnut Raspberry WowChow is packed with the smooth combination of pure hazelnut butter and dark chocolate. To brighten the flavor with a fruity and sweet taste, freeze dried raspberry powder freshens the palette with each bite.
