Taste test: This version of Chex Mix had the same assortment of snack types as the original, with Corn Chex, Wheat Chex, small pretzel rings, 2x2 grid pretzels, squiggly bread sticks and thin triangular cheese crackers.
The chipotle cheddar seasoning turned out to be tasty and reasonably hot, though it seemed more hot than cheesy, and it hardly adhered to the pretzels at all. For the other types, the amount of seasoning varied widely from one instance to the next. The Chex, in particular, had some pieces that were clearly packed with powder and others with hardly any. The blandness of the pretzels detracted from the mix, but otherwise, this was a tasty combo.
