Take a Hike

The key to the perfect trail mix is to hit that ration of sweet-n-savory right on the nose. Here, the sweet tartness of dried fruits and chocolate compliments the salty pretzels, nuts, and goldfish. The combination of textures and flavors is so satisfying - perfect for an extra energy boost on the run.

Trail mix is delightful as an afternoon snack, as a fun party snack, or for its intended purpose - to take on the trail!
