I've worked at an elementary school for years. One of our dear 4th grade teachers would bring this party mix into the staff room on occasion. We would all hover around the bowl like vultures.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 15 ounces crispy rice cereal, squares
  • 10 ounces oyster crackers
  • 9 12 ounces mini cheese-filled sandwich crackers
