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!

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!

  1. We loved it!! Of course I want to enter. :) I haven't had much Chex Mix in my lifetime, and I don't think I've ever made it myself. My favorite is the one that you made. :)

  2. I still like the original recipe Chex Mix best. I need to try the Muddy Buddys recipe cuz I love anything pb+choc. :-)

  3. I also like the original recipe best, but some of the other recipes are very good too. It's hard to make a bad Chex mix!

  4. My favorite Chex Party Mix is Cranberry-Nut Cinnamon Chex Mix :) *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  5. You know I love the original chez mix! In fact, usually by this time in the holiday season we're on our third or fourth batch already. :-)

  6. I don't know if what we call Puppy Chow is the same as your Muddy Buddies, but it's pretty tasty! We're in love with it, but since I have a family of snackers I bet the others would be a hit too!

  7. I like the The Original Chex® Party Mix the best.
