  1. This looks so good! I love asian snack mix and it is probably dangerous for me to have this recipe. 🙂 I’m going to make it post haste!

  2. Delicious snack mix!  I made it today and served before our
    egg roll in a bowl for dinner.  DH ate so much of the mix that 
    he didn’t eat much of dinner.

  3. Looks good. I usually sprinkle furikake on the party mix after tossing with the butter. Adds another flavor level to this amazing and dangerous snack!
