“Who doesn't love chex mix? This one has an Asian flair & would be a different twist whether you are filling the snack bowl for a party or looking for small gifts for coworkers. This mix is slightly sweet from the hoisin sauce and not 'blow your head off' hot. For easy gift presentation fill inexpensive disposable frosting cones. Tied with a pretty ribbon, they look festive and are easy to do.”
