Game Day - MyGetTogether

Just wanted to share our incredible get together that was hosted in part by General Mills and Chex Mix Snacks yesterday!

We invited some of my daughters friends over for "Game Day" this weekend now with much cooler temps and believe it or not, a three hour thunderstorm. For us here in the high desert, that is reason to celebrate! So staying indoors and having fun was something we all wanted to do and making it fun was better the more people who stopped by.

The wonderful folks at General Mills were kind enough to get our party going with a generous supply of Chex Mix snacks and a wonderful Chex bowl to keep the snacking going! We had three wonderful flavors to sample, with one being the traditional Chex Mix always a family favorite in our home, Turtle Chex Mix, which is a chocolate and caramel blend, and Honey Chex Mix which is now our new favorite featured a blend of sweet and salty!

Topped that off with some pizzas from our local pizza place and some drinks and we were all set for a night of fun. We started off with some family favorites like Monopoly and then we all opted for a fun game called Catch Phrase. After the snacks and pizzas we all settled down for some family DVD's before finally calling it a night.

The best part of it was having all the teens sample the Chex Mix and hands down the favorite was the Honey Chex Mix. Every guest left with a handful of coupons to get their favorite flavors for our next party or sooner in another month. We also love having friends over for a fun day of snacks, games and quality time.

I received the Chex Mix samples and information, compliments of General Mills and MyGetTogether for my honest review. I have to say there is no better way to keep in touch with your kids than hosting get-togethers with their friends! Perhaps you'll consider hosting one in your home!


  1. I haven't tried the honey chex mix. But I love the chocolate one (of course).
    Looks like everyone had a blast.

  2. Good Morning Sweetie...
    Oh what a beautiful share. Don't the kids look like they are having a wonderful time? I love the laughter that I can hear and the sounds of the outdoors. You captured it so beautifully sweet friend.

    I didn't know there was a new snack in town with chocolate. Turtle mix adding to my grocery list. Check. Honey chex mix added. Check. Oh my grocery list is grocery just visiting today.

    Thank you for the share though, the grandkids are coming this afternoon so I can pick some up and I'll let you know what their favorite is. I love to experiment with the grands. They are a true test for me.

    I hope you are having a wonderful day today. Resting from the company of yesterday. Sending lots of hugs to you and much love, Sherry

  3. Sounds like so much fun! I love the Muddy Buddies although that doesn't count as Chex mix. I also like the spicy chex mix too. Yum!
