Trader Joe’s Happy Trekking Trail Mix Review

Trader Joe's Happy Trekking Mix

One of the best things that Trader Joe’s is known for is their nuts and trail mixes. They have a bewildering array of choices and even I can’t keep up with them all and they change all the time. Lightly Salted? No salt? With chocolate? Dark Chocolate? Milk Chocolate? Gluten-Free? There are so many choices it can make you mad! I like to eat a lot of nuts, especially peanuts (I know, they are not a nut!). On top of that, their prices are some in the grocery industry so why not shop for nuts at Trader Joe’s?

I’ve been through a lot of the trail mixes that Trader Joe’s sells and looking for a good healthy snack to tuck into my desk drawer at work or on a hike here in the Cascade mountains. I have been looking for the right combination of nuts, dried fruit, and a little bit of chocolate. I think I have found the best mix for me!

It’s called Trader Joe’s Happy Trekking Trail Mix. Don’t get me wrong, there are so many different mixes I’m sure we all have our favorites. The one thing I like is that they don’t fill these mixes up with peanuts or peanut oil. Not that I don’t have anything against peanuts, sometimes I just don’t want peanut flavoring on my mixed nuts!

Trader Joe’s Happy Trekking Trail mix is a combination of Almonds, Cashews, Pistachios, Milk Chocolate, dried Cranberries, and Dried Cherries. I think it has just the right amount of that blend of salt and sweet. The chocolate isn’t too sweet. The dried fruits aren’t all that sweet either. I love the combination of Almonds, Pistachios, and Cashews. A serving is only a 1/4 cup and has 160 calories, so don’t sit down and eat a bag in one sitting, you will get fat!

We do a fair amount of hiking here in the Seattle area and this would make a great bag of trail mix! I plan on hiking soon and will definitely bring this along for me and the kids. I also keep a bag on my desk at work for those 3 pm munchies I always seem to get!

I am going to rate Trader Joe’s Happy Trekking mix a solid 8 Bells!
