I used to make a trail mix for my youngest daughter for her cheerleading snack with Teddy Grahams, M&M’s, Goldfish crackers and raisins. I didn’t say it was healthy, but the sweet-salty blend was ridiculously good.

Buffalo Ranch Snack Mix is like a grown up trail mix.  Set a few bowls out at your next party or tailgate and watch it disappear. 

When we were in New Orleans recently for a food blog conference, we ate some really amazing spicy Cajun food including a snack mix we couldn’t stop eating until the bowl was empty. Food inspiration really is everywhere.
