Grove copied the recipe and sent it to everyone, calling it "Jean Davis Dorhofer's Amazing Snack Mix from the 50th Reunion". She said that it made a great hit.
Ken and Rosalee missed out on the Reunion Dinner... and the Amazing Snack Mix, so to try it they had to make some for the Thanksgiving Dinner they were hosting. It was really scarfed up. They misread the recipe the first time and put in  SIX tablespoons of Corn Syrup. It was still fine, a little more solid,  but likely a lot more calories... so who cares? Thanks, Jean, it was delicious!
