Fisher Nuts Trail Mix Giveaway

I wish I had a recipe to post, but this morning I have thrown away not one but two different cookie experiments. Time to take a break and do a giveaway. Can you guess what it is? If the giant photo didn’t clue you in, it’s Fisher Nuts! They’ve repackaged their trail mix in a “freshness seal” bag and want to let everybody know, including you.

Fisher sent our family five flavors to sample including Tropical, Cheddar Trail Mix, Summit Trail Mix, Sweet Nut Trail Mix and one I could use right now, Energy Trail Mix. So far I’ve only tasted the tropical flavored version. The banana chips were very crisp, the nuts had a clean flavor and the pineapple and mango were fine too (though in my opinion, they could have swapped out some of those banana chips for more pineapple and mango).  Of course now it looks like I won’t be needing the freshness seal, because it’s all gone.

Right now I’m trying to decide whether to bake the other flavors into granola type bars or cookies, or eat them straight. What would you do? For a chance at a free sample pack of 5 different trail mixes, leave a comment telling me how you use trail mix. This giveaway will end Monday June 25th at midnight and I will contact a commenter on Tuesday the 26th.

Fisher Tropical Trail Mix

Recipe to come (hopefully). If not, check Fisher’s new recipe section. I’m looking forward to perusing it this afternoon, though I have to admit I’m a little envious of how neat and clean it looks. I wish I could make my recipe collection look like that.

    I tend to grind it and use it to make energy bars or pie crust. Thank you for the giveaway!

  2. Jennie says

    I have to say that straight would be my choice. However, I bet they would be great in an oatmeal cookie!

  3. says

    I would eat it right out of the bag or incorporate it in some granola 🙂

  4. Teresa says

    Depends on the flavor. Sometimes in salads, sometimes in cookies or granola, sometimes plain!

    I would eat straight from the bag, but I would have to wrestle it away from my husband first! 🙂

  6. debby says

    Straight from the bag. Keep them in the car for a quick snack when your busy life has your running around, so you won’t be tempted to go for fast food.

  7. Elaine says

    First I would have to sample each one, then whatever I didn’t eat out of the bag, I would make some bars with! 🙂

  8. Diane says

    Straight from the bag or sometimes add a cup or so into oatmeal raisin cookie batter..
    This stuff is great for when you travel to snack on!

  9. Karen says

    I tend to make my own trail mix and yes, I agree with everyone about eating it straight. I suppose making it into a granola would be pretty good, but perhaps a cookie would be mighty tasty too.

  10. Julie S says

    We are getting ready to go camping/hiking. We would love to try these mixes! My family loves trail mix.

    I’m not a big fan of trail mix, but my husband is a cyclist who eats a lot of trail mix straight from the bag. Thank you!

  13. Mary says

    I love to send it with the kids for a snack during school. Sometimes they will have their lunch times really early or late in the school day, so a snack like trail mix helps them to kep their energy up. That trail mix looks so YUMMY!

  14. Mary Parks says

    I like to add trail mix to rice krispie treats! They make a delicious snack for the kids.

  15. says

    Because I have so many food allergies, various versions of trail mix are a staple in our home. For me, these can sometimes mean the difference between having a “meal” and not. I also have them stashed in all of my bags. They are my go-to safety food.

  16. Cheryl says

    It looks so good I would probably eat it all before even thinking of how to put it in a recipe!

  17. Mellisa W says

    I use it as a talking scliencer in the car. It makes a great take along snack.

  19. Stephanie Schiltz says

    First I’d eat some right out of bag, thenmake a big batch of granola. I love granola and so does my adult son (I’d share!). We recently shared a beach vacation with my son,His wife and children, and my daughter, and I made a huge batch of PB&J Granola and he ate it everyday for breakfast. I love it on yogurt! Great giveaway!

    How I use Fisher’s Trail Mix: I eat it as is, usually in the afternoon when chores and errands are done and all is quiet. I eat it as a snack while watching Ellen or when I’m reading a really good book on my Barnes and Nobles Nook.

  21. Supergoo says

    The only way I use trail mix is to eat it straight out of the bag. I love that stuff!!

  22. Andrea D. says

    I think I would eat some straight but put The Tropical mix in cookies. Thanks for the chance to enter.

  23. Dorothea says

    I’d use it as a topping for yogurt or throw it in a quick bread recipe – it adds taste, texture, and extra nutrition!

  24. Jan Harris says

    I have a recipe for trail mix cookies that is very good. It’s easy to go overboard while eating it, so I don’t usually keep it around. Unless some cookies are on the menu, then I buy it in bulk so I have just enough.

  25. Joyce Mitchell says

    We eat Trail Mix straight from the bag – it doesn’t last long enough in my house to be made into anything else. Thanks for the chance to win.

  26. Donna G says

    We just eat it. I don’t believe I have ever considered using it to bake something. I don’t know why, though…

  27. Rachel says

    Trail mix is my go-to snack. I always have some handy for when I get the munchies, and I love to pack it for my kids as a healthier alternative in their lunches.

  28. says

    Mixed into vanilla or chocolate yogurt would be delicious!!! I love fruit and nuts with chocolate! You’d have the smooth sweet with the crunchy, sweet-salty mix. Yum!!

  29. says

    I use it to make GORP for camping and hiking. I package it and add some M & M’s to it (have to add chocolate!). I love to sprinkle it on vanilla ice-cream and yogurt and have also sprinkled it in my cereal.

  30. Darlene says

    I think it would be great to continue the sweet and salty combination and mix it with some freshly popped popcorn.

  31. Jacqui says

    My favorite way to eat trail mix is just having it plain!! It is so delicious all on its own 🙂

  33. Martha in KS says

    I like to add dried fruit/trail mix to muffins. Thank you for not posting your not-so-successful recipes. On other blogs I’ll see a recipe & think I’ll make it. Then at the end the blogger says the recipe wasn’t very good. Then why post it?

    Thanks for sharing the Trail Mix.

  34. Ela says

    I eat it straight from the bag. But I’d like to use it in a bar cookie of somekind.

    i’d use that trial mix with my homemade granola! nuts and dried fruit is a perfect mix in with granola

  39. says

    I would eat it to. I have started to see a lot more recipes using it though for muffins and cookies. The tropical mix would probably make a great addition to a banana muffin. The tropical mix is definitely my favorite kind!

    Trail mix is my go to snack — always! I would eat it straight up, though granola bars would be awesome as well!

  42. says

    Truthfully, we like trail mix as-is. But I’m sure with one or two of them, I’d think of something to bake them in or put them in granola.

  43. ELIZABETH C. says

    I eat it straight out of the bag, however Several times I have added some in yogurt. Pretty good.

  44. Nick D. says

    Trail mix is so handy to have when you’re on a road trip in the car. It’s healthy, nutritious, and it’s not messy. So, we eat it from the bag.

  45. Charles Burbridge says

    My wife is an amazing person who loves to figure out how to use things like trail mixes in new recipes. She loves the tropical trail mix, she puts a cup or two into a double batch of homemade muffin mix, and walla , we have tropical trail mix muffins, they are soooo good , served fresh out of the oven with sweet cream butter on them.

  46. Ariana Dokhanchy says

    Sometimes, I add my trail mix to popcorn to create a fun snack while watching Madmen or Parks and Recreation. It’s also REALLY good with ice cream, especially if it has chocolate chips!!!!

  47. Amber says

    Love Fisher’s recipe section! I love eating trail mix with Greek yogurt and some fresh fruit for breakfast.

  48. Jeremy S says

    We eat trail mix right out of the bag. My whole family enjoys it and it’s nice to have as a quick nutritious snack that has lots of protein.

    Actually, I’ve never considered using it ‘for’ anything…that opens new possibilities up for me. I’ve always just eaten it right out of the bag (or bowl that I put it in).
