    Valerie, take a breath, maybe your New Years resolution would be to be a kinder reviewer. Your sharp tongue is not becoming. If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all. Be nice!

    This snack has great flavors and so quick to make. To the reviewer who said there is nothing Italian about, the reason its called Italian is because of the Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese. It could be called crunchy Italian seasoned snack mix but who really cares. Thank you for posting this recipe. My family loves it.

    This is not Italian. Chex cereal and Goldfish are American made. Nothing Italian about this. Shocked it's even posted.
