Otis And Betty’s Snack Mix

Addictive, Sweet Chex Mix Snacks


CAPSULE REPORT: The Chex-style snack mixes from Otis And Betty’s range from chocolate-enhanced to sweet heat. All are winners, but stick to the two-ounce bags or the seven-ounce bags are likely to turn into “single serving size.” The mixes are made in the “old fashioned way”—baked.


Maumelle, Arkansas, northwest of Little Rock, is not exactly a culinary capital. It’s a planned community of about 16,000, established in 1974, with two recreational lakes, surrounded by parkland, bicycle trails and wooden bridges. The town has the highest median household income, the highest degree of college education and the highest percentage of professionals in Arkansas.

And it’s home to the founders of Otis & Betty’s snacks.

Otis And Betty’s line of gourmet snack mix offers the best of all worlds: sweet, spicy and salty.

Varieties Of Otis & Betty’s Snack Mixes

Unless you’re averse to hot and spicy or chocolate, there are no wrong choices here.

  • Original: Honey Nut and Multigrain Chex plus honey roasted almonds, honey roasted cashews, pecans, pretzels and honey roasted sesame sticks. While the snack gets its sweetness from the honey roasted nuts, it has tang from Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, cayenne and other spices.
  • Cin-Ful: Honey Nut Chex plus almonds, pecans, pretzels, honey and brown sugar and cinnamon for sweetness—and a kick of cayenne and other spices.
  • Get Rich: Drizzle your snack with milk and white chocolate and it gets sweeter—and possibly more addictive. Honey Nut Chex, honey roasted almonds, pecans, pretzels, sugar, milk and white chocolate and spices.

Cin-ful bursts with cinnamon flavor.

  • Meet Jack: Honey Nut Chex, and Wheat Chex, honey roasted almonds, honey roasted peanuts, honey roasted sesame sticks, pecans, pretzels, butter, bourbon, sugar and spices. This may be our least favorite of the five, but only because we enjoy the others more.
  • Smokin’: Honey Nut Chex and Wheat Chex, honey roasted almonds and peanuts, pecans, honey roasted sesame sticks, pretzels, BBQ seasoning, sugar and spices.

Now, all those good women who have made Chex mixes for their men to snarf while watching the game can relax, tear the top off of a bag of Otis and Betty’s and enjoy their reward.
