What a funny name for a dessert, right? I like that you can make up this treat and use it as an appetizer at a party. I can think of a ton of people who would like to chow down on this treat while I am finishing up burgers and brats. I think they will find this lemony treat a refreshing change from the usual things I serve.

As much as I love standard puppy chow, I think this recipe is the best I've ever tried! The lemon is subtle but adds a depth of flavor!

This was delicious! I love puppy chow, and this twist on it was lighter and almost refreshing

Perfect for summer. This puppy chow also has a lemony fresh aftertaste that I find delightful.

This tasted just like lemon Fruity Pebbles or Froot Loops. It took me right back to childhood. Yum!

When I first heard of this, I thought the chex mix would get soggy, but it doesn't at all! These taste a LOT like those lemon Girl Scout cookies. Love!

I really enjoy lemon-flavored desserts and this has just the right amount of lemon in it to make it perfect for the summer season. It's nice and light and would make a great party snack.

I just tried this recipe and OMG! It's the perfect combination of sweetness with just a hint of lemon tartness.

Alert! Once you try the lemon puppy chow, you won't want to stop eating it. Delicious!

Wow! I've only had peanut butter and chocolate puppy chow - I would have never thought of lemon. This seems like it would be light, sweet, and zesty. It may even be nice to top on frozen yogurt!
