Chex Mix Brand Snack: Bold Party Blend
I just purchased a 6oz package of Chex Mix Brand Snack in the Bold Party Blend flavor. I only purchased this flavor because the CVS where this item was purchased did not offer the Peanut Lovers' variety. In fact, almost no place offers the Peanut Lovers' variety. I don't understand. This is the best kind of Chex Mix! There are many peanut lovers in the world, myself included, who would jump at the chance to purchase something with so many peanuts in it. Anyway, they didn't have it, and so I bought Bold Party Blend instead. I opened it up a few minutes ago and it's okay, but I don't see what's so bold about it. It tastes pretty much like regular Chex Mix to me. I was expecting it to be spicy or something. The only difference I can detect is that there are "snack crackers" included in this version. If anything, I think this makes the mix less bold because these crackers are sort of like Mini Ritz, only they have a weird stale texture. I guess another difference is that this flavor tastes saltier and monosodium glutamatier than regular Chex Mix, but that seems totally unnecessary and does not add to the boldness. Finally, the name of this flavor suggests that it would be good to have at a party. I don't understand what's more party appropriate about Bold Party Blend than any other type of Chex mix. To make a long story short, I just don't see the point of having this flavor.
