MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 3, 2011

"Instead of Corn Pops, I used Kix (I thought the Corn Pops were too sweet for my taste.) We loved the result, and I will definitely be making this again. Probably too high in sodium for those who must restrict it, but otherwise, very tasty!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 7, 2011

"Who decided this was healthy? Too much sodium. 1/5 the amount allowed per day if you go by the old amt suggested by experts."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 15, 2010

"This sweet and spicy snack mix is an absolute favourite in our home and one we'll be making many more times. It's so good, it vanishes faster than I ever expected."
