I was told it should be declared illegal because it is sooo good noone can stop munching it until it is gone. While camping and playing cards everyone called it "cereal crack" . Now my grandchildren have me make it for them to take to school. It is "the perfect thing to munch while studying" Thank you for many really great recipes over the years. Only problem is, when I try something new I have to add it to the list of favorites because there are none i can discard.
I found this recipe inside land o' lakes margarine carton and made it for a group of my sons' friends that were here to watch the super bowl two years ago. since then every time we are having people over to play cards or my son is having company they request it. I wrote this comment because just about five minutes ago a friend of my son said his wife was craving the mix. It is great to serve a crowd and taste "scrumplicious"
From sweet to savory, snack mix is a crowd favorite for watching TV or taking on a hike. Nuts, cereal and pretzels combine with tasty flavors. So make a big batch and munch on the mix!
