Many of us eat some kind of trail mix during the hiking day. You can buy it premade in many varieties, or you can buy exactly the ingredients you like most and make your own mix. The only limit is your imagination and what you can afford.
I just finished putting together a big batch of mix for the upcoming summer. Just for fun, I thought I'd ask what other forumites's trail mix looks like. Are you a traditionalist who only eats plain GORP (Good Old Raisins and Peanuts), or an everything and the kitchen-sink trail mixer, or an exoticist who nibbles roasted edmame with papaya bits, or a purist who must have all-organic or nothing? Reveal your preferences here!
Here's my latest mix:
2 lbs. Planter's Dry Roasted peanuts
2 lbs. Blue DIamond almonds (1 lb each: roasted & salted, smokehouse)
25 oz. M&Ms, dark chocolate variety
1 lb. Thompson's seedless raisins
1/2 lb. candied ginger bits
1/2 lb. dried cranberries
This works out to 500 calories per 100 grams of trail mix.
