Friday Favorites: Trail Mix (plus Giveaway!)

I’ve been on the hunt for a long time for a trail mix that I can enjoy.

Just a little somethin’ to tide me over before dinner, or a quick snack (that won’t melt in the heat) when we’re on the go.

I don’t like raisins. Not even a little.

Why do 90% of trail mix options have to include these?

Even picking them out means that at least 1/3 of the bag goes to waste.

Okay, so not wasted because my kids will eat raisins BUT trail mix is expensive. Too expensive for picking out elements I just can’t stomach.

And I don’t necessarily need chocolate in the mix.

I’ve been scouring the pre-packaged options at the store and the bulk bins at Sprouts and there is just very little to choose from sans raisins.

In fact, I’ve found only ONE….


Enter Amazon.

Side Note: Isn’t it amazing that you can buy almost <literally> anything on amazon?

I came across these two varieties and am in love.

Mega Omega (Walnuts, Dried Mango, Almonds, Dried Cranberries & Pumpkin Seeds) and High Energy (Dried Pineapple, Cranberries, Papaya and Banana Chips with Walnuts, Cashews and Coconut) **Affiliate Links**

The right combination of dried fruit, nuts and seeds. No raisins and no need for chocolate because the dried fruit is all the sweetness my taste buds require.

Wanna know what I’m extra hyped about?

The price!

Less than $5 per 14 oz bag!

AND they deliver to my door.

I am so pumped up about my new found HEALTHY snack that I’m gonna give a bag away (and this is NOT a sponsored post from the makers – this is just Simply Writeous giving back to supporters of the blog)!!
