Food Lion® gets you ready for the "Big Games" #FoodLionSale

It's March and that means Basketball! Food Lion® is getting on the bandwagon and having a great in-store sale from March 3rd to 16th!

I know that when March comes around that means a lot more snacks are needed in our household, because we watch a lot of basketball games! This also means that I have to watch my budget and shop the sales.

Luckily, from March 3rd to 16th, Food Lion® is giving shoppers a great deal. When shoppers use their MVP card to buy 10 General Mills' products, they will get a $5 rebate on their receipt to use on their next shopping trip! Who can't use $5? I know that will help me feed the fanatics!

One of my favorite snacks is Chex® Mix. It is easy, delicious and my guests love it! My favorite Chex® Mix recipe is: Cheesy Ranch Chex® Mix.

Here is the recipe:


9 cups of Rice Chex® Mix, Wheat Chex® or Corn Chex® (I use a mix of 2 or more of these)
2 cups bite size mini pretzels
2 cups bite size cheese crackers
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package ranch dressing or seasoning mix
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


In a large bowl mix the Chex® Mix, pretzels and cheese crackers. Then, in a small bowl microwave butter for 30 seconds and pour over cereal. Mix well until it is all coated. Add in the seasoning packet and Parmesan cheese and mix well.

Put the mix into the microwave for 3 minutes, stirring after each minute. Then, spread out on a pan to cool.
That's it! How easy is this recipe? Plus, it is always such a great snack for hungry sports fans. It is satisfying and tasty. I love that I can make a lot of the Chex® Mix and store it. It never stays stored for long though. It is usually eaten the same day!

Head over to Food Lion® for some great deals! Remember to use your MVP card to buy 10 General Mills products in a single transaction from March 3rd to the 16th and you’ll get a $5 rebate! Offer applies to certain General Mills products. The participating products will have a shelf tag to advise shoppers which products are including in this offer.
