An Afternoon Hike And The Easiest S’mores Mix

I’m sharing how the girls and I enjoy outdoor hiking with a s'mores mix snack that I make using Goldfish® Grahams as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #GoldfishTales


This weekend was a wet one… but since we are in such a bad drought, and we love the rain… there will be no complaints from us!

But, as soon as the sun started to break through we all had the same idea… let’s go for a hike! And that is exactly what we did! I think the warmer weather after a couple of cooler ones all had us dreaming of summertime, and one of our favorite summer foods… s’mores!

Since we can’t build open fires where we live, I thought of the next best thing… s'mores mix using Goldfish® Grahams! I didn’t tell the girls my idea… they just thought we were going for a hike!


We hiked up and down our hills and saw butterflies, squirrels and more birds than we could count!

It didn’t take long for us to work up an appetite… we were all hungry! I didn’t tell the girls that I had brought a snack. I thought it would be a fun surprise, and it was! Most times my little one doesn’t even have to tell us how she is feeling because her expressions (like this one below) pretty much tell us all we need to know!

I’d say the little one was happy with my choice of s'mores mix for her kid snack!

This is the perfect snack to take with you anywhere, or to enjoy at home. It takes minutes… maybe even seconds to put together, and my girls (and I) love it!

To make the s'mores mix you just combine 40 Goldfish Grahams (that’s one serving size) with a few mini marshmallows and chocolate chips! I put them directly in little containers and carried them with me.

This time the little one helped me add the Goldfish Grahams because she loves to count.

At five years old it’s one of her favorite things to do, so that was her job! Goldfish Grahams are definitely a great snack that kids love to eat and play with.

We found some logs to sit on and we just enjoyed the sunshine and talked about the week ahead.

It’s amazing how a little time spent outside talking about life can really clear your mind and help you remember what is really important in life.

We all decided moments like these need to be a part of our weekend routine!

  1. These are great photos of the two girls together which are precious moments for sure. We love to go for walks on a near by trail through the woods which we make it a family affair. The smores mix I will have to make with my little niece and nephews when they are over. They are a great easy snack for the kids to make and enjoy. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Loved your pictures and the Smore trail mix looks yummy. Made something similar with a honey cereal – need to try it with the Goldfish. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I had no idea that there was a such thing as Goldfish® Grahams! I’ll have to keep an eye out for them next time I’m at the grocery store. I think my daughter would love to try your s’mores mix!

  4. What a fun, nice hike. Love your s’mores mix too! With that kid’s smile, I can tell she enjoyed it a lot!

  5. Omg my daughter would love these! I will have to lol for these gold fish when I’m shopping next!

  6. Since when are Goldfish made with Graham–and how did I miss this. I love graham crackers and making those s’mores is such an easy and HAPPY thing to do!

  7. Your girls looks so pretty. I really like this post & the wonderful pictures as well. This is the first time I have heard about Goldfish Snack. Looks yummy and cute and I am sure my kids would love this for sure. Will have to check out this for our next outing.
