Nerdie Foodie Fridays: The Peanuts Movie Edition

Foodies! Welcome back to another Foodie Friday. Better yet, today is release day for The Peanuts Movie!!!!! That’s right folks! Lucy, Linus, Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the gang can be seen in a theatre near you starting today!! The Peanuts gang by Charles M. Schultz are such classic cartoons. So in honour of the premiere of The Peanuts movie, we are going to see just a taste of what you can do with a lot of popcorn and something about Albertson’s Safeway doing a lot of promo for the movie (we don’t have Albertsons Safeway in Canada, we just have Safeway…is there a difference?). In any case, wherever you buy your groceries, candies, and popcorn, it doesn’t have to be the exact same brand as the ones that can be found in the recipes below because well, I’m Canadian (end disclaimer). Let’s roll!

Snack Mixes

Snack mixes are great options. For those who love a mixture of sweet and salty, check out Heidi’s creation (Happiness is Homemade) here!
