Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still not as good as store-bought This tasted fine, even good... but you just can't get it to taste as good as store-bought Chex Mix. It's not the flavor so much as it is the texture and greasiness/messiness. Not worth the trouble when you can buy it pre-made for cheaper than buying all the ingredients separately.
