Long before Chex Mix was a snack you could buy at the store, it was something people made at home; and long before that, it was just a breakfast cereal. The original homemade Chex Mix recipe is not vegan because it contains Worcestershire sauce. On the other hand, the pre-made Traditional Chex Mix you can buy at the store is vegan. Chex Mix comes in many other flavors besides Traditional/Original, but most of them are not vegan. We would list them all here, but they change frequently and there are far too many to keep track of. If you want to know if a specific Chex Mix flavor is vegan, you can lookup the ingredients here.
