Ghostbusters Snack Mix TrioHave you guys seen the new Ghostbusters movie?  It’s in theaters now, and it looks great! I LOVE the original, and I can’t wait to see the new one, maybe this week for date night!!

With Ghostbusters on my mind, and perusing the aisles at Walmart I started thinking about a fun, themed, back to school treat! Something that would make a great after school snack, or be greatly appreciated in a college care package. I picked up M&M’s® Milk Chocolate 42 oz. a bag of M&M’s® Peanut Butter Bite Size Chocolate, the Mixed Mini Variety Bag and SNICKERS® Mixed fun sized variety 35.09 oz.
