This is the best snack mix I have ever made! I did not change a thing.
i like the mix of snacks in it, the bugles are a great idea! What i didn't like was that its pretty bland. i would make it again but add way more seasoning and probably some garlic salt.
Made this last year for Christmas. We didn't care for the cayenne, so I substituted garlic salt for it. I also used Old Bay for the Cajun seasoning part. That made it a huge hit in our house.
I like the mix also but like axelpaxels I thought it was pretty bland and would double the seasonings the especially of Cayanne,worcestershire and cajun. Also added some garlic salt.
I've been making this for a couple of years now and have received compliments EVERY time. When I first made it I was a little worried because it hadn't even been reviewed, but I wanted something different. I'm glad I gave it a shot. Now I have guys at the office getting into arguments over who gets to finish it off! Perfect recipe as is.
We liked this and it was totally easy to make, I like recipes like this. As not in my favor when getting the simple ingredients for this recipe at this time of year....shelves were empty. SO subbing Cheddar Bugles for the regular and the Duo Cheez-It's for the plain...are the adjustments I had to make...not by choice. But it still worked. I could say this could use some salt or garlic powder added at the end would be really good, not much but just a little. And knowing how well this recipe worked and the family liked it, I think personally using cheddar bugles, I would reserve the cheddar bugles(or put aside) follow through the rest of the recipes as written and add the cheddar bugles after words to get that cheesy flavor. But again, good recipe, good flavor.
