Deliciously Easy Family Movie Night Snacks

Disclosure: The information and prize pack have been provided by General Mills through Platefull Co-Op. The hot days of summer are a great excuse to cool off indoors and take a break from the heat .

Why not organize a family movie night. However,  movie nights / afternoons are not complete without snacks, usually of the salty variety are a must at our house.


While my family loves freshly made popcorn, we were thrilled with the new Chex Mix variety now on grocery shelves. We tried the new Chex Mix Popped at our last night movie night and wanted to share our thoughts on this brand new snack option.

Inside each bag of Chex Mix Popped,  you will find the familiar flavors of the Chex Mix we all love, with the fun addition of flavored popcorn.

The new Chex Mix Popped comes in 2 varieties: white cheddar and sweet and salty. Our taste buds immediately went to the White Cheddar flavor first.


Now for the taste text… Thumbs up from both the kids and parents. It is the perfect combination of two snacks we already love all in one bag. One warning thought be careful this is addicting and I have only found these in small bags. So stock up for your next movie night because I am sure it wont last.


If you are a salty kind of popcorn eater, grab the White Cheddar Variety but if you are more of a caramel corn fan, I recommend going for the Sweet and Salty variety.


We mixed things up even further with the addition of some chocolate candy to our sweet and salty bag for some extra fun and true movie night snack maddness.
