Trader Joe's has a pretty good variety of pre-mixed trail mixes.

I went to the store to price how much it would cost. Most of the stuff was $5+ per pound, and I figure I would mebby get 1lb each so I could make some later on. 7 x $5 = $35 minium..dang yo!

So I made an impromptu Mix: 1 cup Roasted Peanuts, 1 cup Wasabi Peas, (2) 4oz boxes of Reese's Pieces.

I like to mix dried fruit, coconut chunks and sometimes corn nuts in there too.

For me, a good mix is chocolate nibs, peanuts, sesame seeds, hulled pistachio, dried pineapple, dried mango, and dried cranberries. If I can find dried blueberries, I throw those in as well. This is a very healthy mix that is low in sodium (depending on the nuts), fat, and carbs. It is high in all the things the body needs to keep going.

Chocolate nibs are found in the bakery section of your supermarket.

Just be prepared. Chocolate nibs are not sweetened. But they are rich and yummy, and are actually good for you to boot.
