Goldfish Snack Mix

Simple Goldfish Snack Mix

It is that time of year when kids are heading back to school or in our case hitting the books at home, since we homeschool. Regardless if you are shipping them off to school or off to the other room to do their work, there is a renewed sense of responsibility to feed them a healthy lunch. As much as we try to keep our lunches healthy and balanced, we all crave a little treat from time to time. This Goldfish Snack Mix is the perfect blend of sweet and savory. It is great as a snack at lunchtime, after school, or for family movie nights.

I really like how portable the Goldfish Snack Mix is and I can get several individual servings out of one batch. Thanks to snack size sandwich bags, I can easily portion out this delicious snack to help control overindulging. Make your family this delicious Goldfish Snack Mix for lunch or anytime and be prepared for requests to make it again.

    This is such an adorable snack idea for back to school. I NEVER would have thought to add Sixlets! That color is so much fun. I had no idea Sixlets were even still around!

    I love creating snack mixes. The mixture of salty and sweet is just so addicting! Adding them to kids’ lunchboxes is such a great idea, too! And with all of the different Goldfish flavors, the different combinations are endless!

    I would LOVE to make this for my boys – but you know, they stopped selling goldfish crackers in the UK! I’m so sad – we had them for a short time and my boys just adored them – but now we only have boring round crackers. Delicious mix you’ve made!
