I love Chex Mix. I liked it homemade, and I liked it even better when it started showing up in stores pre-packaged. Homemade is still better, of course, but it seems I always have a taste for Chex Mix when I am out of Wustusterchurshire* sauce, so I was loving the bagged version. Then they came out with a honey-nut version that is pretty good too, although so far the Chex people haven’t twigged to the “puppy chow” peanut butter and chocolate version. Then, today, I found Chex Mix Trail Mix! Chex, pretzels, peanuts, raisins and little ersatz M&Ms. That’s gotta be good, right?
The cereal bits are sweetened, but either not enough or too much - I can’t decide. The peanuts are puny. The pretzels should be salty - but they’re sweet (yuckers!!) The raisins are OK, not too dried out. The faux M&Ms are teeny and there’s not nearly enough of 'em. The whole shebang is lacking… something. Something vital.
What I thought was going to be a nummy PMS-soothing munchie is crappy, and it was three whole dollars worth of crappy! I feel so cheated.
