A new sweet/salty twist on an old party favorite, this mix includes pistachios, craisins and a mild curry flavor that make it irresistible! It's also a great gift from the kitchen to keep on hand during the holidays. Mary Beth Harris-Murphree - Tyler, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 29, 2011

I've made this three times - the only thing I do differently is triple the sauce and double the stuff, in order to make a bigger and more flavorful batch. Everyone I've made it for loves it!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 7, 2010

I made this today, it sure made the house smell great. I was enticed by the spices and ingredients- even though I am not much of a chex mix person. So my review might not be too fair. I am sure this would disappear at a party and be thoroughly enjoyed. Its spicey with the sweetness of the yummy cranberries! I have been making recipes as I get them in my mailbox- instead of just earmarking them and saying oh Ill make that someday. (I just need more eaters!)

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 5, 2010

I haven't made it yet, but fully intend to! Since I don't like chow mein noodles, I intend to use sesame sticks instead! Can't wait!

MY REVIEW

This is okay, but I've had better tasting chex mixes. The cranberries are a nice change though.
