Winner! randomly randomized the number 3. Which is a little odd because that is the number it generated on my last post. Crazy. The moral of this story is that, on my next giveaway, you should make sure you're the third comment.

Chex Party Mix-Changes & A Giveaway

Chex Party Mix-Changes & A Giveaway

Chex Mix.

I can remember eating it by the fistful at my grandparents' house when I was a kid. Usually I picked around the peanuts and the Wheat Chex because I was a bigger fan of the pretzels and the Corn Chex but I'm pretty sure that I spent many a holiday hovering around the Chex Mix bowl.

Now, they're having Chex Party Mix-Changes where, instead of cookies, people bring all different kinds of Chex mixes.


I'm totally thinking of having one as soon as my Christmas schedule eases up. Since I'm married to a pastor, this doesn't usually happen until after Christmas. No biggie. There's nothing that says Chex Mix is limited to the holidays. In fact, I'm pretty sure that when they started bagging the stuff and selling it in the grocery store, the good makers of the stuff were saying, "This is more than just a Christmas treat!"

If you're interested in throwing your own Chex Party Mix-Change, you can go here for recipes and you can follow these easy instructions:

How to throw the ultimate Sam´s Club Chex Party Mix-Change:

If you don't have time for a party, consider making Chex Mix, using their packaging ideas, and giving it as a gift to your neighbors or coworkers.

Just for telling you about these great parties, Sam's Club, Chex Party Mix and General Mills sent me a giant box containing a package each of Wheat, Rice, and Corn Chex. They also sent me a $25 Sam's Club Gift Card.

And guess what, they're going to give one of my readers the same prize pack! Who can't use cereal? Whether you want to make Chex Mix or just pour some milk over your favorite kind, I think we can all agree that free cereal is always a good thing. And even if you're some weirdo who doesn't like Chex, I'm pretty sure you like free money!
