"We love this mix! I've been making it for years!!! At Christmas I put the Christmas M&M's in - Red, Green, and White and omit the candy corn. Sometimes I put in pretzel goldfish or S'more cereal. This is so versatile and it is always great!!!"

"This snack mix is amazing...absolutely delicious and addicting! I have made this many, many times. For other occasions (such as a baby shower or Christmas), I omitted the candy corn and substituted seasonal M&Ms - such as pastel colors or red & green."
