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.

  2. Mix spices together and toss with cereal ingredients.
  3. Pour melted butter over cereal and spices. Mix to coat thoroughly.
