Football season has finally arrived! AMEN is what I have to say to that little bit of information. In addition to watching the games, I love to watch football-themed television series on television.
One of my favorite shows is one about a retired football star that is starting a new career as a financial manager for current players in sun-splashed Miami. The show is great fun! It shows the flamboyant, over the top lifestyle of football stars and all the trouble they get themselves into.
So you see, Sunday night for me is all about Sunday night football and catching the new episodes of my favorite television shows. Monday night, and Thursday night you can bet I am on my couch catching the game. Let’s face it a girl need’s an easy snack to munch on while watching the tube.
She also needs a quick, easy go-to trail mix recipe when she has zero time. If the quick, easy go-to trail mix recipe can work for tailgating, pee-wee football, or just munching on the couch on Sunday, then all the better! Am I right?
But don’t forget trail mix is the perfect snack for trips where you’re on the go; whether that be on a way to a pee wee football game, going on a hike, biking or a family road trip, it’s a great snack. But, sometimes the standard, traditional trail mix can be, well, boring. But, M&M’S® Brand Milk / Peanut Chocolate Candies Game Day Mix can help you make your trail mix fun with their super fun Touchdown Trail Mix for game day.

Very dangerous stuff Anna. I can’t attest to this since I blew through a big bag over the weekend.
I can’t imagine trail mix without M&M’s, it would be too sad:(.
I couldn’t agree more Cathy! 🙂

My hubby is obsessed with Trail Mix! I’ll have to make this for him!
He will love it Brandy!
I absolutely LOVE the sound of this trail mix! I’m a sucker for any kind of trail mix, and I love the idea of snacking on this during the game. Nuts + M&Ms are always a winner in my book!
Thanks Erin! Enjoy
I love a good sweet and salty snack mix to munch on any time of day! This is definitely perfect for eating while watching tv!!!
So many yummy things in one place! I love the M&Ms and cashews the most, I think.
My hubby picks the M&M and cashews out of the mix! 🙂
