This is very, very good. I tried it when I saw it on the Chex mix box. All the fruits listed are variations. I didn't use any of the fruits. I also made mine in the oven like regular Chex mix is made. I wasn't sure I was going to like it because right out of the oven it was kinda' chewy like the other poster said but after it cools off it is addicting - even better the next day! I couldn't stop eating it which is why I've only made it once. :)
