Chex Mix and Kroger- A Review and Giveaway

***Giveaway has ended.  Winner has been chosen.**

If you know our family, you know we love Chex cereal and the mixes that it allows us to make.  A few of our favorites are the Muddy Buddies (also known as "trash" or Monkey munch or Puppy Chow) and the original Chex mix or what I grew up calling it, Nuts and Bolts.  A few weeks ago we tried the new Lemon Buddies mix and that was really good too!  And I know my husband would LOVE the new Ginger-Honey crunch mix.
We have already made one batch of Muddy Buddies this year and will probably make at least 2 more!  And the new Chex PB and Chocolate Blast mix looks AWESOME!  Chex mix is the best treat and an awesome gift!

Looking for a neat Christmas gift for a teacher or co-worker?  How about one of these mixes in a colorful tin or jar?!  So simple and yummy!  I know I would enjoy a Christmas treat that I didn't have to prepare!!!

And Kroger wants to help and has sweetened the season with a special offer, for 3 weeks, beginning December 2nd thru December 25th, they will offer their lowest price on Chex cereals!  What a sweet deal!

Chex and Kroger, through My Blog Spark, has offered for me to do a giveaway!  You will receive 2 boxes of Chex cereals as well as a $25 gift card to Kroger!  What an awesome way to help out during this busy baking and goody making!

So, here is how to enter:

1) Comment telling me what mix you plan on making this Holiday season.
2) Like Hyperactive Lu Reviews (on the sidebar) or Hyperactive Lu on Facebook.  

And thats it folks!  Since its so close to Christmas, this giveaway will be short!  We will choose the winner on Monday, December 20th.  :o)  Good luck!

**A big thank you to Chex, Kroger and MyBlogSpark for allowing me to do the review and giveaway.  I received no monetary gift for posting about this giveaway or review.  I did receive the same "gift pack" that I am giving away, which was 2 boxes of Chex cereal and a $25 gift card to Kroger**

Chex Mix Get-Together and Giveaway

**Comments have been closed and a winner has been chosen**  

My family and I are long time fans of Chex Mixes and the chex cereals!  For as long as I can remember my Grandmother has been making "nuts and bolts" or the original chex mix.  Shortly after moving to Georgia, my parents neighbor brought over some delicious Chex Mix (Muddy Buddies) and I was won over!  Ever since Hubbie and I have been married, we've been making Muddy Buddies every Christmas as one of our yearly treats!!!  

On Tuesday, we were blessed to have some new friends come to our house for lunch and a playdate!  I had just received our Chex Mix pack which included a box of Chex cereal, the recipe (available at your local Wal-Mart) for a new Chex Lemon Buddies mix and a few other goodies!  I decided to go ahead and make the new Chex mix for our guests.... not knowing if the kids would like it!  I don't know why I thought they wouldn't, because the mix was gobbled up by EVERYONE....including my 15 mo old!  They all seemed to love the mix!  My older boys continued to ask for more!  It was definitely a hit!

our lunch spread with the yummy new Chex treat

MyBlogSpark and General Mills has given me the opportunity to spread the love and giveaway the Chex Mix Party pack to a lucky reader!  The party pack includes a box of Rice Chex, a measuring cup set and a Chex Mix tote bag (which is really big and heavy duty).

To enter, leave a comment and tell me what your favorite Chex Mix is!  
You already know my favorites and I want to hear yours!  Giveaway ends in one week from today!  
I will announce the winner next Saturday, December 18th.  

Good luck!
