There are lots of different brands and different flavours available. So now we will have a look at some of the best trail mix that you can buy.

Trail Mix Bars


Trail mix bars have grown in popularity over the years. This is mainly due to how handy they are. A trail mix bar gives fast energy and is also lightweight and very easy to eat.

The Nature Valley trail mix bars come in various flavours, some of the popular ones include the fruit and nut bars, cranberry and pomegranate and the dark chocolate and nut. These bars are probably the most popular ones on the market at the moment and they really are very tasty.

These bars are usually quite chewy and are full of flavour. They are very healthy and contain lots of dried fruits and nuts that are very good for you.

Another very popular make when it comes to trail mix bars is Kashi. Kashi trail mix bars or granola bars as they are also known are simply bursting with flavour. Kashi pride themselves on the quality of the their products and they have a very good reputation for tasty trail mix bars. Some of their most popular flavours include the honey almond flax bars and the chewy bars. These are both very good nutritionally and taste excellent. There are a few other trail mix bars on the market but I would say that either Nature Valley or the Kashi bars tend to be the best ones.

Aside from trail mix bars there are other ways you can buy trail mix. Many people like to simply buy trail mix loose.

One good thing about trail mix is that it is easy to make your own. All you need to do is by some dried fruit, nuts, seeds and raisins. The only problem is that it does not always work out that much cheaper as buy the time you have bought everything you need you may as well just have bought a bag of trail mix anyway.
