Snack Mix Snack Mix spices Snack Mix ingredients Snack Mix recipe Chocking warning for you on this one. I seriously can inhale this stuff like it’s nobody’s business. When I eat junk food I totally go for the munchies mix. I assume everyone else will agree that the pretzels are stupid, and just ruin the mix. The pretzels are filler and we all know it. Yet, I still kind of like them. So in our version, our pretzels are goldfish so it’s not as much of a filler in this situation as just a different texture. This is kind of complex snack mix in that we have a lot of ingredients, but I think sometimes you just have to go for it knowing the results are worth it. I recommend justifying it by just making more and more snack mix and then eating it. This is seriously our best ever snack mix, and it’s just as wonderful as you can imagine. Just be careful, as I have learned it’s called “snack” mix for a reason, and you should still attempt to eat real food.

    Yes to the snack mix! For some reason I prefer to have the small pretzel sticks in my snack mix but I am sure the pretzel goldfish would be fabulous.

    I love snack mixes too! There’s just something about the crunch factor for me I have to have. I’ve made my own as well, but I like the pretzel goldfish for that little pretzel addition. Hot n spicy cheese-its would be yummy too. I think it’s time to gather ingredients soon and make this!
