{Attention Chex Mix people....}

Last month I bought a bag of the Chocolate Peanut Butter Chex Mix. I usually love this stuff, and very rarely buy it for myself unless it's on sale.

I bought a bag a month ago, and found it was mostly pretzels. Well, I could buy a HUGE bag of pretzels for 99 cents, if I wanted to eat pretzels. No, I like the chocolate covered Chex Mix cereal!
So, I emailed the company and basically shared my opinion that I was sorely disappointed they were heading for cheap fillers (aka pretzels).... and a few weeks later came an email w/ a "sorry, that was a malfunction & 2 coupons are heading to you". I get my coupon for a free bag & $1 off another bag last week. SO.... I went grocery shopping last Friday & used my free coupon to buy another bag.
Today I opened the bag. What did I find?


I thought "ahh... well, maybe they all are in the bottom".

I took it all out, separated the pretzels from the good stuff.

And guess what? I have a much smaller amount of "good stuff" vs a huge, over the top of the bowl pretzels. The chocolate coated cereal? There were about 12 total!

Chex Mix people.... cheap are ya? For $2.50 a bag I'm never buying this stuff again AND I'm telling all my friends how cheap you are! So, lay off the pretzels, will ya?


  1. wow that is a lot of pretzels. I think you should email that picture to the company!

  2. I love pretzels, but that's ridiculous, especially when that's not what you're paying for.

  3. You go girl!! hahah, that is crazy. I think alot of these companies are skimping out right now. I tried to eat frosted shredded mini-wheats 2 days ago and I SWEAR there was half of the frosting on it -- way less then normal!!!-- So I hear ya:)

  4. LOL! You are just too awesome for words! I totally agree with you. They are totally cheap. I have a good recipe around here for chocolate covered chex mix. That way you don't ever have to deal with pretzels again!

  5. To many pretzels in Chex Mix are dissapointing! I would send them the picture for sure. :)

  6. You crack me up! I too love the pretzels but I would want me some Chex to go with it!
