"I've never made the classic party mix, but thought this one interesting because of the healthy changes. Unfortunately, I found it very bland, even with the addition of some cajun seasoning. It might be better with double the seasoning as KWhitehead suggested, but that would cancel out the healthy aspect."

"I doubled the seasoning, and it was delicious! (worchestershire sauce, seasoned salt [I used cajun seasoning instead], and garlic powder)"

"After mixing this up I thought it tasted a little bland so I sprinkled more garlic powder and seasoned salt over each pan before baking."
