Are you familiar with Save-A-Lot Stores? Save-A-Lot stores feature Great Food, Great Prices, and Great People! I recently went shopping at Save-A-Lot in Independence, MO in search of super easy Back-to-School Snack Ideas! Check out what I found, and Find a Save-A-Lot Near You!

After shopping in the store, I came up with a delicious homemade snack mix recipe that has a “secret” ingredient that will quickly become everyone’s favorite ingredient in this snack mix… Caramel Mini Rice Cakes! These are seriously delicious and addictive. My 6 year old wanted to eat those first and kept wanting more. 🙂 This is the yummiest snack mix I’ve ever had… the Caramel Rice cakes are a MUST-HAVE in this snack mix recipe!

Plus, Save-A-Lot has lots of great ready made Snack Mixes that are perfect for Back-to-School and after school snacks, like Pistachio Chewy Bites and Chex Mix too! Here you can see some ready-made snack mixes we bought, and ingredients we used in our Super Easy Rice Cake Snack Mix:
