Taste test: Chex Mix is like party mix where you have several different tastes going on — Pretzels, kind of standard taste, but you have two different shapes (round and square); Chex cereal, two kinds — both the regular Corn Chex and Wheat Chex pieces; and peanuts, although if you eat them out of the bag you usually don't get to the peanuts until the end. The best bet is to open the bag and pour it into a bowl, but then the peanuts also go to the bottom of the bowl, and you find yourself picking through the bowl to get to the peanuts. What makes this flavor (cheddar) so good is that they've added the cheddar flavor to the Chex mix pieces. Yum, it's good. However, you do get cheese residue all over your fingers, so be warned. Also, while individual pieces taste good, you get a real flavor explosion when you grab a handful of the mix and chomp away. The whole is definitely better than the sum of its parts in this case.
Aroma: Standard oil-type smell with those aluminum foil-type inside bags.
