Rated 5 out of 5 by from sooooooooo good!! I have served this for several events and love bringing it to parties for others to enjoy! I am making it right now to take with us ice fishing! My family loves this snack mix. I use less nuts (family request) and more Chex mix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recipe and not too spicy! I'm not a fan of bloody Mary's either but love this recipe! Instead of the wasabi peas, I use Gardetto's Rye Chips or their snack mix for extra crunch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super flavorful without too much spice I made it and took it to an open house. Everyone couldn't get enough. Even my family loved it and they never think anything I make is spicy enough. Will definitely make it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DELICIOUS!! Cannot make enough of this fast enough to keep in the house. We have been through 6 batches in two weeks. I have my husband and my co-workers OBSESSED with this chex mix. Will be so upset when this product goes away in the fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of FLAVOR!!! I did not expect this snack to be so packed with flavor! I didn't think you could make snack mix with bloody mary mix! I am looking forward to making it very soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zesty and addicting! I whipped this up for a get together. Just tweaked the ingredients to my liking... I used a small can of peanuts and cashews in place of the Deluxe nuts, and used Crispix cereal. I omitted the Wasabi things because I couldn't find. But let me tell you, we couldn't stop eating it! Glad it made so much!
