I liked the flavor, however VERY disappointed with the resulting texture. I'm not sure why Chex advises you to microwave. The cereal clumped together and was hard and stale tasting after only 3 ...

Really good! Not as spicy as I would have hoped. I didn't use the celery seed, and I only used corn chex...was a little too salty but not bad for a party mix!
