MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 13, 2013

We like snack mixes in my house, the whole family liked this one. Its a good combo of salty sweet. I didn't have oats or peanuts, so I left them out. I did add some oyster crackers, that I had on hand, they were ok, but I think mini ritz would be a lot better. I didn't have onion salt, so I subbed a tsp. of seasoned salt and a tsp. of onion powder. I also added a tsp. of garlic powder and tiny dash of cayenne powder. Because of the honey, this will burn easily so keep watch, I had to turn my oven temp down by 25 degrees.
