"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!"

"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!)"

"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!"

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