Now that summer is in full swing, it’s only a matter of time before the kids head back to school. When school is in session, the kids are always wanting snacks when they get home. Some of our favorite snacks are the Honey Maid Graham Crackers and the Honey Maid Teddy Grahams. We enjoy the Honey Maid Graham Crackers with peanut butter, with ice cream, and with roasted marshmallows and chocolate. It’s also great when making pies and other baked goodies. We love to snack on all the different varieties of the Honey Maid Teddy Grahams and I thought it would be great to create a Back-to-School Trail Mix Recipe that the kids (and grownups) would enjoy eating!

When I headed to the grocery store, I was amazed at all the different flavors of Honey Maid Graham Crackers and Honey Maid Teddy Grahams there were! The Honey Maid Graham Crackers were available in Honey, Cinnamon, Chocolate, Low Fat Honey and Low Fat Cinnamon. The Honey Maid Teddy Grahams were available in Honey, Cinnamon, Chocolate and Chocolatey Chip. I love that there were so many flavors to choose from!

As a mom, I want snacks for our family that are healthy and delicious. I know I can get that with Honey Maid products. I recently learned about Honey Maid’s This is Wholesome campaign, which not only reflects Honey Maid’s delicious snacks made with real ingredients, but it reminds us that no matter how things change, or what makes us different from one another, what makes us wholesome stays the same.
