A 1940's version of the Chex type party mixes. Originally published by the Spice Island Seasoning Company to introduce their spices. This was a holiday tradition when I was growing up. Great for parties, snacking and gift giving.

- Mix all cereal ingredients together in a large roaster or roasting pan. A Nesco electric roaster works best.
- Mix spices together and toss with cereal ingredients.
