Free Chex Quest Comic Anthology Coming To Comic Stores Next Week

Chex Mix is a type of snack mix that includes Chex breakfast cereal (sold by General Mills) as a major component. I have never heard of it, or indeed Chex breakfast cereal, which is why I am cutting and pasting this from Wikipedia. These are apparently commercially sold pre-made varieties of Chex Mix, as well as many recipes (often printed on Chex cereal boxes) for homemade Chex Mix. Though contents vary, the mixes generally include an assortment of Chex cereals, chips, hard breadsticks, pretzels, nuts or crackers. It is generically known as Nuts & Bolts, particularly outside the United States, but not in the UK – as I've said, never heard of it.

In 2019, General Mills rereleased Chex Quest and its previously unofficial 2008 sequel and presented a mini-documentary.
