Recently, we were asked if we’d like to try a snack mix called It’s Freakin’ Awesome. How could we resist?
It was developed by a Dallas-area caterer, and became a big hit locally.
A bag arrived: a mix of sweet and salty flavors with a bit of heat. A blend of caramelized tortilla chips (a fun idea!), Chex cereal pieces, dried cranberries, almonds and peanuts, it’s a variation on a Chex Mix.
It’s tasty, to be sure, but no more awesome than some other Chex Mixes we’ve made. We will acknowledge, though, that compared to the boxed Chex Mixes on the market, the ingredients are more pure (you can taste the higher quality).
So why are we writing about it?
First, you might need something freakin’ awesome as a stocking stuffer or party favor. The name is sure to delight. “It’s Freakin’ Awesome” may be hyperbolic, but it is fun.
Second, a portion of every purchase goes to Carry The Load, a charity started by a former Navy Seal to support the families of fallen heroes from the military, law enforcement, firefighters and rescue personnel.
We love food with a mission!
You can purchase It’s Freakin’ Awesome online at FestiveKitchen.com, and at Festive Kitchen stores in the Dallas area. A 9-ounce bag is $8.65.
