This Cinnamon Spice Fall Snack Mix is the perfect road trip snack for all of your fall adventures from apple picking to the pumpkin patch!
There are so many things to do in the Fall, right?
I know my own calendar gets completely booked! I mean, you have apple picking, going to the pumpkin patch, the corn maze and fall sight-seeing drives to name a few. In order to keep everyone happy on these weekend trips, I always go armed with snacks!
This Cinnamon Spice Fall Snack Mix is the perfect treat to take along. It’s full of graham cracker sticks, cinnamon yogurt covered pretzels, pecans, dried apples and dried cranberries, which practically screams “Fall!”
We had intentions of going to the Circleville Pumpkin festival last week, but rain combined with an unfortunate case of pink eye cancelled our plans, darn! I guess there’s always next year, right?
Instead of the pumpkin festival, we waited the mandatory 24 hours for the pink eye meds to kick in and headed to the Columbus Zoo for Boo at the Zoo! This was our first year going and it was so much fun! Even though it was a little chilly, Emily had a great time looking at all of the pumpkins or “mum-mums” as she calls them and seeing everyone in costume. It’s also running this coming Friday-Sunday (10/28-10/30) if you still want to go!
With this trip to the zoo and so many others planned this season, you never know how long you might be on the road with traffic, an accident, etc. This is why snacks are an absolute must! Baby girl and I tend to get a little cranky (sorry Kevin!) if we’re hungry with no food around, which is why this Cinnamon Spice Fall Snack Mix is great to take on all of your fall adventures, especially if they involve any sort of car ride over 30 minutes.
I easily found all of these ingredients at our local Fresh Thyme store, that has two full aisles of bulk food bins, which I love love love! It’s so great to be able to just buy what you need and not have to buy a huge container of something that I won’t use all of. Who’s with me on that one?
If you have a full schedule of fall events this season and I know you do, you’ll definitely want to grab something like this snack mix for the road to keep all of those bellies full. No one wants an unhappy camper on a long car ride. Been there, done that and now I’ve learned!
