I can remember being in the first grade and getting a small handful of Goldfish crackers for good behavior. My teacher kept a giant box behind her desk and they were the best treat ever! It was always a happy day when I earned a handful of crackers. It’s funny what memories we hold on to, even after 25 years. Goldfish crackers are a classic treat and one that my children enjoy as well.
Our favorites are the cheddar and pretzel Goldfish crackers. For years I avoided the pretzel ones because I figured they wouldn’t be any different than a bag of pretzels, but these ones taste better than any pretzels we’ve tried. They are also super fun to eat!
Today I’m sharing a fun and zesty mix of Goldfish crackers. My kids love when I make this. I have to make a giant batch to accommodate their snacking appetites! You can make a half batch if you don’t have as many little ones as I do. Store in an airtight container or divide into small snack baggies to bring to the park this spring for the perfect snack.
Zesty Goldfish Crackers Mix
12 cups Goldfish crackers, any variety

Zesty, full of ranch flavor, and mixed with our favorite Goldfish cracker varieties.
Which varieties will you choose to add in your mix? Pretzel, cheddar, whole grain?
Walmart has the 30 oz. varieties of Goldfish crackers on rollback for $5.98 in Cheddar, Made with Whole Grain, Pretzel, Colors, or Flavor Blasted Xtra Cheddar. We picked up a box when we were there last week, but I’m thinking I should have bought two!
