Taste Test: Snack Mixes

This time of year, to say that schedules get busy is an understatement. Between work, school, sports, and hobbies, we’re moving fast and need a nosh that can not only keep up, but travels well, energizes, and satisfies.  

Snack mix is the ultimate tasty, hearty treat. With a seemingly endless variety of ingredients, you’re sure to find a sweet and salty combo that will hit the spot for any activity. Tuck into your work bag, book bag, or backpack, and you’ve got a snack that will keep everyone happy until dinner. Finally, one less thing to plan!

We tested twelve different flavors to find the all-stars that will help you power through:

TAKE IT OUTSIDE: Lunds & Byerlys Aloha Trail Mix
Head into the great outdoors with a snack that not only tastes great but won’t melt in the sun or stick to your hands. L&B Aloha Trail Mix is full of peanuts, pumpkin seeds, almonds and dried tropical fruits like pineapple and papaya for balance. Grab a handful, enjoy the view, and get your second wind.

KID APPROVED: Angie’s Boom Chicka Pop Sea Salt Caramel Trail Mix
Whether you’re packing for school lunches, practice breaks, or just feel like a kid on the inside, Angie’s was the stand out winner. Kids will love the caramel popcorn, pretzels and chocolate, but the peanuts and cashews are the real rib-stickin’ slam dunk.

WORKING 9-5: Made in Nature Nut Fusion Maple Balsamic Supersnacks
Sometimes you need a little sustenance to keep up with all the deep dives, circle backs and value adds. Made in Nature is packed with almonds, walnuts and cashews (they don’t call it “Nut Fusion” for nothing), and sweetens the deal with cherries, figs, and a sweet hint of maple and balsamic. Perfect brain food for that busy afternoon in the office.

DIVE INTO DESSERT: Sahale Snacks Maple Pecans Glazed Mix
Let’s face it: sometimes it’s all about satisfying that sweet tooth. With pecans, walnuts, dried apples and cherries tossed in a light maple cinnamon glaze, it’s a sophisticated blend that tastes like an apple crisp without any of the work. Grab a bag and enjoy your clean kitchen.
