"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!"

"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."
