Trail Mix - a simple delight
I have never tried trail mix before. I have heard of it, but probably just a reference to it in films. It is not really a Scottish thing.
I came across the idea of trail mix on Jo's blog - Kitchen Girl. Jo regularly makes trail mix with her children as a healthy snack. She made her last mix out of raisins, peanuts, sunflower kernels, yogurt drops and banana chips. Sounds good, doesn't it? Jo describes Trail mix as "the perfect mix of salty, sweet, chewy and crunchy"!
I just couldn't believe that something so simple and tasty could pass me by, so I immediately started planning what to put in mine. My first thought was that popcorn might be a good idea and so it is! The rest came about as I wandered the aisles of my local supermarket.
It is such a great snack to take to work.
