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.
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.

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).
I eat if directly from the bag as an afternoon pick-me-up.
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.

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

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

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

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.

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

I think it would be great to continue the sweet and salty combination and mix it with some freshly popped popcorn.
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.
As a snack with my iced tea in the afternoon.

I like to put the mix into cookie batter.

Straight out of the bag…or on top of ice cream!
straight out of the bag tansk
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.
I’d use it as a topping for yogurt or throw it in a quick bread recipe – it adds taste, texture, and extra nutrition!

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.
I would sprinkle them onto my salad or eat them out of the bag.

We eat granola over ice cream or pancakes, both great!
I bring it to work for an afternoon pick me up!
An anytime snack when you want to feel good about what you are eating.
It looks so good I would probably eat it all before even thinking of how to put it in a recipe!
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.
I like to add trail mix to rice krispie treats! They make a delicious snack for the kids.
I love trail mix with pretzels and yogurt!!
Right out of the bag works for me!
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!

I eat it straight but also like to mix the smaller pieces into my Greek yogurt.
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.
Besides just eating them for a snack, I put them on top of a crisp green salad.
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!
First I would have to sample each one, then whatever I didn’t eat out of the bag, I would make some bars with! 🙂
Caralyn @ glutenfreehappytummy

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.
I would eat straight from the bag, but I would have to wrestle it away from my husband first! 🙂
Depends on the flavor. Sometimes in salads, sometimes in cookies or granola, sometimes plain!
