General Mills has a new program called Pssst... It's basically a try-this-product-and-tell-others kind of program. I like these sorts of programs because I am a huge believer in word of mouth advertising. I have tried their new Pillsbury Thin Pizza Crust and the Chex Mix bars.

Crun-chewy-licious!• Experience the Joy of Snacking in Every Bite!• NEW Chex Mix® Bars are a unique combination of ingredients, including corn and wheat Chex cereal pieces, chocolate, peanuts and pretzels.• And with less than 150 calories, they're a delicious snack you can feel good about eating!

Here's an awesome recipe for homemade pizza using the new Pillsbury Thin Crust:
