My Opinion:
This cereal is so delicious! my 4 yr old daughter loves it! I did the apples myself in the dehydrator, they came out crisp and sweet. A perfect addition to chex cereal. Such a healthy snack thats not loaded with calories. It so easy to make too! Skie (my daughter) helped me mix, the hand full that fell on the floor served as kitty chew after they batted it around for a while. lol. no biggie just a quick sweep.
