Chex mix with a little kick!

Top Review by drruth100

Very good! I did make substitutions based on what I could find at my local warehouse store: Life cereal instead of Corn Chex and Multigrain Cheerios instead of regular Cheerios. Both of the substitutions have a tiny bit of sweetness to them, which was a nice touch to this mix. Also substituted square pretzel shapes for the sticks and Goldfish Cheddar crackers for the Cheez-It crackers, but left the seasonings the same. The large quantity is great for making gift bags for numbers of people. Very good basic snack mix!
