What's your go to trail mix? Do you make your own? What goes into your homemade trail mix?


I'm a fan of "Happy Trekking" from Trader Joe's. It's a blend of almonds, cashews, pistachios, cranberries and cherries, with semi-sweet chips made with Belgian chocolate. The cranberries and cherries are great but the pistachios really make it.

My other favorite off the shelf trail mix is "Monster Trail Mix" by Archer Farms. We usually get it at Target.  — Mar 9, 2017

I will admit to having a bit of a trail mix problem. Unless I have a big objective, I can't keep it in the house! I am also a fan of TJ's "Happy Trekking" mix, but if I make my own, I usually include a combo of salted nuts, raisins/craisins, and peanut or peanut butter M&M's, as well as pretzels. Cashews too, are a major key!  — Mar 10, 2017

I think many hikers have the same issue! I always seem to have a bag in my desk at the office.

I think cashews are a key base to many mixes. I'm thinking of trying some with crispy M&Ms or toasted almonds. Chocolate can be tricky as it can melt in the bag. — Mar 11, 2017
