Trail mix was invented in 1968 to serve as a snack while hiking or doing another strenuous activity. It's lightweight, portable, and full of energy-dense ingredients like dried fruits, nuts and chocolate- perfect for trailside noshing. For those same reasons, trail mix can pack a hefty caloric punch, especially when we mindlessly munch while sitting around at work or home. Keep serving size to a quarter-cup or less to keep this yummy snack from sneaking into 'danger food' territory.
