Snack Pack Mix Ins

Snack Pack Ideas

 

Snack packs are mixes of random non perishable food that you can eat at snack time.  We make a lot of snack packs in my house.  It is easier and cheaper than buying Chex Mix or something along those lines.  I make large bags since it all keeps well, so that I can grab and go.  If there is a bulk section in your grocery store, I highly suggest walking up and down it to find your flavors!  A bulk aisle will decrease your cost drastically.  Bulk aisles also tend to have options like unsalted.  Making your own Snack Pack will lower the salt, sugar and preservatives in you daily snack.
