    guppy chow = cardboard probably better he didn't eat.

    anything with the word chow in it is automatically terrible. ANYTHING but the chex mix stuff with the chocolate/pb and powdered sugar... that's amazing.... but EVERYTHING else is nasty. would defend that to the death.

    There is no recipe! Just head to the nearest convenience store and pick up a bag.

    "BUGLES CARAMEL"
    General Mills: Bugles

    It sounds like a weird combo. But damn are they tasty!
