Easy Cheez-It Snack Mix 3

When it comes to watching your favorite sporting events, having good snack food is crucial. Cheese is usually the first things that comes to mind so I ventured to Walmart in search of the new Cheez-It Grooves and Crunch’D snacks.

First, I picked up the Cheez-It Grooves in the original cheddar flavor which had the same cheesy flavor as traditional Cheez-Its but in the form of a crispy ruffled chip. Next, I grabbed the Cheez-It Crunch’D in hot and spicy which were spicy, square cheese puffs. Bob’s favorite were the hot and spicy Crunch’D Cheez-Its and he already has warned me that I am not allowed to buy them again because they are “too good”. Apparently all self control is lost in their presence.

But of course I couldn’t just stop there. It’s not in me to serve up snacks straight out of their packaging without adding some kind of flare to them so I invited several other snackables to the party including mini pretzels, honey nuts corn squares cereal, roasted peanuts, and wasabi peas. After they all have mingled together in one giant bowl you will find they make a great snack mix combination – crunchy, sweet, salty, and spicy all in one. Did I mention that this snack mix requires no oven? Get your snack on, people.

What are some of your favorite game day snacks?
