Happy National Trail Mix Day! Today is in fact National Trail Mix Day and I thought a great way to celebrate would be to highlight some of the best trail mix brands, and how to choose the best one for YOU!
Trail mix is a quick healthy snack for kids and adults alike. Most trail mix recipes contain a combination of nuts, seeds, and dried fruits, with some flavor and treats added in. There is a combination for just about anybody, that will appeal to just about any snack craving.
Everyone has their preference. The great thing about trail mix is that it’s a simple healthy snack idea for camping, hiking, traveling, or to take on just about any adventure. It’s good for strenuous outdoor activities because it provides energy-dense nutrition like nuts, dried fruit, seeds, and even chocolate.
Now let’s find the best trail mix for YOU!
If you don’t like nuts…
You must try the Seed and Fruit Mix from Enjoy Life. Their Mountain Mambo and Beach Bash flavors combine a combination of seeds, fruits, and some treats. No nuts! Peanut free trail mix can be hard to find, but these are both a great option, especially as a healthy snack idea for kids with allergies.
If you want a healthy trail mix…
I recommend the Survival Trail Mix by North Bay Trading Co. It’s a mix of nuts, seeds, and dried fruit with low sodium and is GMO free. This is a perfect option for the trail. It will give you lots of energy without leaving you thirsty, only thirsty for more.
If you want a treat…
Brianne from BEE Bakeries & Trail Mix really knows how to do it right. Her trail mix combinations are handmade goodies, just the way you want them. Each one comes in a personalized jar of various sizes. BEE Bakeries & Trail Mix is local to Oregon, but she can provide shipping all over the country. You can even return your jar to Brianne for $1 off your next trail mix order. My favorite part: her signature trail mix includes M&Ms and is definitely an awesome sweet treat!
If you want a lot of flavor…
Feridies is where to go. Their Rt. 58 Trail Mix is a fruit and nut mix with a lot of flavor. Feridies is owned and operated by the Riddick family in Southampton County, VA. Their Rt. 58 Trail Mix comes in a resealable bag, perfect for taking on a backpacking trip. Or you can get it in a 18oz. can.
And if you’re wanting even more flavor…you must try their Campfire Crunch recipe. It’s a combination of hickory smoked flavors and a little but of sweetness. It’s delicious!
If you like gourmet nuts…
You’ll love the premium nut blends from Sahale Snacks. Whether you like pecans, cashews, pistachios, or almonds, they’ve got just about every nut covered. Each flavor is unique with “a dash of culinary magic”.
