It's almost the 4th of July and you know what that means - sunshine, sizzling grills, frosty drinks, cold pools, fun friends, and delicious snacks! Here's an idea for a fun snack mix using patriotic-colored snacks and candies that'll be a festive addition to your holiday cookouts.
You'll need 3 ingredients - a bag of Pirate's Booty Fruity Booty (read my review) for the red, a package of Rickland Orchards Greek Yogurt Coated Almond Bites for your white, and some blue M&Ms or other blue candy-coated chocolate for the blue!
I'm a massive fan of all of the flavors of Pirate's Booty and ever since discovering it last year, my pantry has never been without a bag of these tasty lil' guys. They are gluten, cholesterol, preservative, artificial color, trans fat, peanut and tree nut free! And most importantly, they taste sooooo good!
Mix all three ingredients together in desired proportions and you're done! Isn't it festive and cute?
Healthy alternative: If you don't want to use the chocolate candies or M&Ms, try some dried blueberries!
There's lots of texture and flavor going on here - you have the raspberry-flavored puffed corn texture of the Fruity Booty, the smooth yogurt coating over the crunchy dry roasted almonds, and we all know that chocolate candies are a must have to any sweet snack mix! I really enjoyed the extra tang that the Rickland Orchards Greek yogurt coating added to the flavor combinations.
#snackmixselfie? Maybe that can be the new thing? No? Okay... well, don't go yet, because I have a giveaway for ya!
