Chex Mix Travels Stateside

I am very happy to announce that coldwar's Chex Mix recipe is traveling very well here stateside. I made it for Valentine treats to rave reviews. On the recipe card I included with each treat bag, I entitled it "Traveler's Holiday Mix". coldwar, I hope you approve!

Crepes, inspired by a recent thread, I'd like to nominate your post title for post title of the year! And kudos to you and coldwar for creating a "fodorites family" tradition!

Wow! Fantastic! I never considered making it for Valentine's Day but I might have to now.

I thought I would share the response I got from General Mills. Suffice it to say, the mystery continues.

Thank you for contacting us here at General Mills. We appreciate your interest in our cereals.

In November 1989, General Mills and Nestle S.A. merged to create a joint venture, Cereal Partners Worldwide (CPW), for the purpose of developing and selling breakfast cereals throughout the world, outside the continent of North America.

Consequently, I ask that you contact CPW directly regarding your inquiry.

With the addition of Switzerland now, this truly is a travel related post. Maybe I should just travel to Switzerland for the answer.

It makes sense that your recipe would be very successful in the US.
After all, our system of government is based on chex and balances.

YES YES YES! I love these "x"-posés! Let's keep it going a while, shall we? After all, there have been much more ridiculous threads than our traveling chex mix!

Shouldn't this one be posted in the US Forum?

Did you use the Easter M's (pink & red) for the Valentine's mix? I sent the recipe to my sister in law with instructions to be sure to use the appropriate M's for the occasion for color coordination. That will make it X-tra special.

Xcellent suggestion carrolldf.

I hope the US is ready for it. Perhaps I need to couch it in terms of "What hotel in Vegas would serve Chex cereal for breakfast?" or "Will traveler's chex be accepted at Disney World?"

I vote for the later title....as long as you don't ask about Euro Chex.

I guess if you make the mix with Shreddies instead of wheat/corn/rice chex, then it would be Euro Chex Mix.

I didn't put this in the US forum because the mix was originally a gift sent to the UK. It's first trip was an international one. We may import the mix to the US forum later. Right now, I am x-ing that idea!

Wait, I think that should be "x"port the mix to the US forum.

And I used the Valentine bag of M&Ms and will use the Easter bag for the Traveler's Easter Mix.

I took Crepes idea and made Valentine's Chex mix today too.

It was difficult finding finding the Valentine's m&m's because they have that stupid ad campaign to find the colors and all of the bags at the store were black and white ones. I finally tracked down the Valentine ones. Great idea Crepes!

Thanx coldwar. I owe it all to your inspiring post! Sorry you had trouble locating the Valentine M&Ms. Way down south here in Walmart country, there were plenty. You know Walmart never runs out of anything. Tomorrow they will be on clearance for practically nothing per bag!

Wonder if there's any chance of a St Paddy's bag of M&Ms? I guess not. Well, I am waiting for the Easter mix.

I should have known better. I live in the south too (Florida). The treats were well received!

It may be going a bit far for Chex Mix, but you can custom order M&Ms in your choice of 21 different colors. http://www.colorworks.com/cgi-bin/sg...DIV=0224&GEN5=.

One of the pre-selected mixes is St Patrick's Day.

I obviously spend way too much time on the web........I thought about ordering a mix in purple and light purple once

This is a great site! Thanks for sharing. I was at Downtown Disney recently and saw dispensers of various individual colors and thought about it for St. Patrick's Day. Now I can order them from this site.
