From Land O' Lakes website. Made these tonight. Added Frosted Flakes Gold to the mix. Sprinkled with Seasoned Salt. Goes great with a cold beer.

This was quite different from regular chex mix. I used my taco seasoning mix (can't use the packaged ones) and the oregano in my recipe was a little too much. Will make this again omitting the oregano. Made for the winner of 1~2~3 Hits It's Not Easy Being Green ~ March 2010.
