Chex Mix: Jalapeno Cheddar Flavor!

I don't recall ever seeing this variety of Chex.  I stumbled into it recently while doing our weekly grocery run, and being a fan of spicy snacks decided to give this a try.  The packaging screamed spicy with its flames and green stripes, reminiscent of that typical burning sensation from biting into a nice Jalapeno! 

The recipe for this mix?: Chex cereal, cheese crackers, mini breadsticks and salty pretzels all imbued with a nice kick.  All the elements were well coated with a spicy, cheesy powder that provided a decent kick with very distinct cheddar flavor.  If you have a handful of these the spice kicks in towards the end every time, providing you with a nice mix of salty and spicy.  As a note, the spicy element of this mix genuinely conveys a jalapeno like flavor.  Only thing is that these snacks will stain your fingers pretty easily, so keep the napkins nearby if you're playing a videogame.  

Overall a nice new offering to the Chex Mix line, they're definitely solid and offer everything they set out to:  A nice variety in the mix, a good cheddar flavor and a really solid jalapeno finish!  If you liked the Chex Mix Hot & Spicy variant, you'll definitely want to check these out.  Reccomended!


Buy this snack! :)
