Winter Chex Mix Cocoa

Taste: This mix included pretzels shaped like stockings, snowflakes, sleighs, snowmen and Christmas trees (moronically described on the bag as "holiday trees" so as not to offend); mini marshmallows, the kind they include with hot chocolate mix; vanilla bread sticks; Corn Chex; and Frosted Mini Chex. All of those things had a thin coating of a hot chocolate-like powder that adhered to everything quite well. I was impressed General Mills' innovation here, as this mix had several firsts. It was the first snack mix to incorporate chocolate seasoning; first to include marshmallows; and it had pretzels in several shapes that I haven't seen before. It was OK if you were willing to pick and choose the parts you wanted, but if you just grabbed a handful of everything, nothing great. The dry, salty pretzels and bread sticks just didn't fit with the chocolatey, salty character of everthing else. It's like they wanted to satisfy a salt craving and a sugar craving simultaneously, and it just didn't work.

Aroma: Smells like any of those chocolate cereals such as Cocoa Puffs.
