Nuts & Bolts Pub Mix
Pub Mix is a uniquely American Snack with uniquely British name. Our Bite Society snack mix is called Nuts and Bolts. This snack is so popular we doubled its size! This new larger tin gives you about a quart of our signature pub mix that brings a little heat and a little sweet to your bar top. If you are wondering the last tin was about a pint. So double the fun!
The craze for this snack is credited to the wife of a Ralston Purina executive (she was known only as wife) who made a holiday snack mix with Chex cereal. This is purported to have happened in December 1955. Slight problem there. The first chex mix style snack recipes appeared on the back of cereal boxes in 1952. Not sure if Don Draper gets the credit for this story, but it does sound a bit more fun than: Group of ad guys in smoked-filled room come up with alternative uses for cereal. Later, same ad guys attribute the recipe to an unnamed wife. Same ad guys go for drinks and are served Pub Mix.
Our snack was created in our catering kitchen, served to thousands, and found a home in a tattoo themed tin. Enjoy our favorite bar snack with a pint and save the tin for your workshop.
