In my life, it seems like some things just fall into place ever so perfectly. I wouldn’t say everything does but sometimes everything works out without the extra effort. In this case, it was a total accident that started something delicious in my home.
In 2017 I road tripped with my kids to Florida armed with wholesale quantity sized snacks and multiple DVD’s. The kids were of course very excited to be on our way to Florida and handled the two days drive a lot better than I expected.
I attribute that to the fact I had basically my own corner store in snacks traveling with us in the 2017 Kia Sedona. Fast forward to when we were on the last day of our Florida Vacation. We had finally hit the bottom of our snack stockpile and it was random bits of the kid’s favorite snacks.
It was at that moment I said hey let’s mix what we have left and add in something they would surely approve of. At that moment my families favorite on the go trail mix was born. The main star of this trail mix was, of course, the delicious Goldfish Crackers my family loves and this mom trusts.
Among the many reasons why I love Goldfish Crackers is the fact that they are Goldfish crackers are baked with real cheese. My kids love the Goldfish Color Crackers, and thankfully Goldfish Colors crackers are made with colors sourced from plants. To me, Goldfish crackers are a snack you can feel good about giving your kids.
In this quick recipe, you will use your favorite Goldfish Crackers as well as granola bars and marshmallows. This recipe was designed to be road trip friendly as well as theme park snack friendly. If you are like my family and try to save as much money as possible when visiting theme parks, then you will be happy to know this is snack is perfect for those summer days.
This recipe is also good for a quick thrown together snack, that is kid approved and a perfect conversation starter. I like to listen to the kids tell their friends what their favorite combination of trail mix is. To my surprise, it is a great way to learn what their friends like and also help customize the next batch by adding more of what they like or minimizing what they don’t.
Also if you haven’t seen them yet Goldfish Crackers now come in Resealable Bag’s which make this recipe even more travel-friendly. I like to whip everything together and then throw them in the resealable bag. I love being able to throw away the bag when my family is finished when we are traveling. It makes for less of a mess and less of a hassle of worrying about grabbing the normal plastic container we use for our snacks.
