Wendigo Hunting M&M's Trail Mix | Supernatural
Welcome to another Supernatural Thursday, in which I share recipes inspired by the show Supernatural. This week I'm heading way back to a time before our boys voices were deep and husky, and the hunt to find their dad had only just begun. Season 1, Episode 2 (Wendigo) finds Sam and Dean posing as park rangers in order to look into the disappearance of campers in the woods at Blackwater Ridge in Colorado...thinking that perhaps John may have been there.

They join up with Haley and Ben, who have hired a guide to lead them into the woods in hopes of tracking and locating their missing brother Tommy. With the help of John's journal, the guys deduce that what they're dealing with is a Wendigo, based on the cannibalistic creature from Native American lore.

In some legends, a Wendigo is created when a human turns to cannibalism in order to survive. Since Wendigos hibernate, they have to capture humans and store enough to last through the winter. This is the hope that keeps the search party going (though they do realize that John is probably not here).

As the group starts into the forest, Haley confronts Dean, telling him she knows they are not Rangers since they're only carrying a duffel bag and didn't pack any provisions. Dean comes clean, admitting to Haley that they think their father is missing, as well. And in typical Dean-fashion, pulls a bag of Peanut M&M's from his pocket, indignantly proclaiming...

And what do you mean I didn't pack provisions?

Later in the show, guide Roy has been taken by the Wendigo, and the group has split up. Sam and Ben are trying to find Dean and Haley when Ben notices a trail of Peanut M&M's, which he shows Sam, to which he replies "it's better than breadcrumbs".
