  10. This brings back memories. It’s been decades since I last had puppy chow!I have never tried lemon and white chocolate before. I hate white chocolate because it’s too sweet for me. The only time I liked white chocolate was when it was drizzled on a macadamia nut granola bar which was heaven. The lemon might actually help balance out the overly sweet taste of white chocolate so I might try that sometime.
