Snack #9- Chex Mix Hot 'n Spicy

Chex Mix Hot 'n Spicy

This mix is not so spicy. It seems we forgot to take a picture of the actual mix, but it had white and wheat chex, triangle crackers, pretzels, squiggly crackers, and dark bagel chips (pumpernickel? rye? whatever.). In general, it seems that pretzels and crackers don't pick up seasoning very well, so in this mix they detract from the overall spiciness. The triangle crackers were buttery instead of spicy. The Chex were the spiciest part of the mix, probably because they have the most surface area to grab the spicy bits. The white Chex also seemed hotter than the wheat ones, maybe because the wheat flavor is stronger than the white flavor. When a bunch of Chex are eaten without the rest of the mix they can build some heat, but with the whole mix there is only a subtle spice.

Ratings on the Spice-O-Meter:
Chex: 4/10
Mix: 2/10

Bottom Line: Moderately spiced Chex with mild Mix.
