Cheerios Cheddar Snack Mix

cheerios.jpgNew Cheerios Snack Mix has one thing going for it – the Cherrios name. Many people will probably buy it based on this, as I did. However, they may not buy it again. I recently tried the Cheddar variety, which looks delicious on the front of the bag, but really doesn’t have much going for it. To begin with, it has too many Cheerios. I estimate that they make up about half of the snack mix. The other components – cheese crackers, twist pretzels, Chex cereal, and bread twists, are barely discernable. One of the great things about snack mix is the variety of flavors that you get while eating it. Not so with this snack mix – everything tastes like cheddar cheese. I guess that if you are a serious cheddar cheese lover, you might like it. Others should probably look elsewhere to satisfy their snack mix cravings.

I love the new cheerio snack mix!!!
I like all the cheerio's in it and the flavor!
Some other snack mix have too much other stuff, this one is simple and refreshing. I love the little pretzel's in the mix too, some snack mixes pretzel's are much too large. The little round white crackers are awesome and not hard to chew into! This was a great find for me!!
I wish they sold larger bags!

I haven't seen these Cheerios snack mixes. I like eating dry Corn Flakes and dried cranberries as a late-night snack. It's yummy.

I tried this snack mix and it tasted ok but was very disappointed that it contains both transfats and high fructose corn syrup. It uses the old trick of giving a small serving size so it says 0% transfats but if you look at the ingredients you will see it has hydrogenated soybean oil in it. I trusted the Cherrios name as heart healthy never expected transfats!

I must agree with Lisa. I purchased this snack mix without reading the label because Cheerios is usually a name associated with healthy eating. Imagine my surprise when I saw the hydrogenated oil in the ingredients!
