Making Dallas Even Better

While Sandy Korem, founder of The Festive Kitchen, munched on her snack mix and tried to think of a name for it, all she could repeat was, “This is freakin’ awesome!” The name stuck. This sweet and salty addiction—made with tortilla chips glazed with brown sugar, dried cranberries, corn and rice cereal, and peanuts dusted with cayenne pepper and chile powder—is the perfect crunchy treat for large family gatherings. With the holiday season fast approaching, it’s safe to say that watching the Cowboys beat the Oakland Raiders on Thanksgiving Day is incomplete if you aren’t noshing on this freakin’ awesome snack. A 14-ounce bag costs $12.95.
