I am a member of General Mill’s Pssst… Panel ,which is a group of people that learn about new products, try the new products, and sometimes host parties to get the word out about the products. I was recently chosen to host a Chex Mix party. I love Chex Mix and the party is on a Sunday so I thought it would be fun to host it during a Steelers game.
My party pack arrived in the mail on Monday and inside were three different bags of Chex Mix, a ton of coupons for Chex Mix for my guests, football plates, football napkins, and a huge Chex Mix bowl. I was very excited to see the football themed plates and napkins since I had already decided to host a football party with the Chex Mix. The three flavors I received were: original, Honey Nut, and Turtle flavors. I always eat the original but I’ve never had the Honey Nut or the Turtle flavors and I’m anxious to try them both.
The great thing about having a Pssst party is that there is a website for hosts with recipes, product information, and a community of people that share what they will be doing for the party. After looking at the recipes I am excited to mix up “S’More Fun” with the Honey Nut Chex, “Chocoholic Fave” with the Turtle mix, and “Berries and Chips” with the original Chex Mix.
My party will be hosted on October 3rd. I have invited a few family members and a few friends. It’s looking like there will be about 10 of us. I’m also looking for ideas on other snacks to serve, so if anyone has any good football snacks, post them below! I can’t wait to host this party and try the different Chex Mix recipes.
I haven’t yet tried this one yet, but here’s a quick recipe for Island Delight using the Honey Nut Chex Mix.
1 bag of Honey Nut Chex Mix
1 c. Macadamia nuts
½ c. dried bananas
½ c. dried mangos
½ c. dried pineapple
½ c. sweetened shredded coconut
1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Serve with a Pina Colada.
