Snacking is where it’s at!
Now a days we have SO many options to choose from when we want to munch on something or give the kids a bite to eat when they come home from school. With so many options, sometimes it difficult to decide, too!
I was shopping at my local Albertsons the other day when I decided I wanted to make a snack mix. Believe it or not, I’ve never made Chex Muddy Buddies™. Can you believe it? I have a food blog, it’s a popular snack, and I’ve never made them??
Get Out!! Have you got the image from Seinfeld when Elaine pushed Jerry into his bedroom? 😉
I decided that had to change.
When the kids were younger, I purchased the bags of it because it was just so good, it was convenient, and sometimes I’ll admit, things taste better when someone else makes it for you, right?
I came across these snacks from General Mills and decided to combine them into one tasty treat, so that there was a taste of something everyone would enjoy. It’s sweet, but not too sweet with just the right amount of crunch and a bit of chewy mixed in. It tasted Snacksational!
