Throw together an assortment of nuts, seeds, and dried fruit and you’ve got trail mix – a healthy, high energy snack alternative to grabbing a candy bar. The sweet and salty snack is both convenient and suitable for taking on the go. Serve as a fun party mix or throw a handful in your favorite yogurt or ice cream.
Our trail mix variety offers customary favorites such as raisins, almonds, walnuts, cashews and peanuts, but also popular additions – sunflower seeds, pistachios, pineapple, papaya, pumpkin seeds, and not-so-common dates, raw Spanish peanuts, filberts, and brazil nuts.
So how did these random snacks end up in the same bag?
- Some say Native Americans created the first trail mix thousands of years ago and used dried bison meat in the mix.
- Others say this mix dates back to early 1900s when outdoorsmen recommended it for camping.
There are many names for trail mix too, depending on what part of the world you venture to.
- In New Zealand and Australia it is called Scroggin
- North America hikers often refer to it as GORP (acronym for good old raisins and peanuts). Amusingly, gorp means ‘to eat greedily’ in the Oxford English Dictionary. We have another mix that we call Grand Canyon Gorp.
- In European countries, they give the moikers student fodder, student oats or student mix.
Whatever way you say it or bag it, trail mix offers an assortment of healthy fats, protein, carbs, and antioxidants. So dig in! We offer our house-made recipe it in one and five pound bags.
