Reviews for Chili Snack Mix
"A nice change from the normal snack mix!"
"I hope this gets better with time. It was expensive to make and at best is was okay. Very bland!"
"Very fast & very easy. I brought to a Halloween party & the bowl was cleaned out! The seasonings give it a good flavor. Don't let the name scare you-it's not hot. It is slightly sweet, so if you want more a savory mix, cut back on the sugar. Recommend for a quick, simple snack to feed a large crowd."
"Some family members like it just as well as Chex Mix. Very crispy and not too spicy."
