Northwest Delights Olympia Trail Mix (which has peanuts, raisins, almonds, and M&M style candy) comes in an 11 oz. bag (1/4 c. being a serving, so roughly 10 servings in bag total) lists their mix as having 140 calories per serving. Any help for your question?

I'm a LAMO... I buy bulk and never thought to actually read the label on the Bulk Bin... Duh;)
Hit the trail mix(mostly nuts/seeds)1/4 cup 150cal
mountain trail(one I posted)1/2 cup 190cal
Now I just need to figure my calorie count per day?

more trail mix on 03/16/2005 19:57:54 MST Print View

I also make my own trail mix and it has a ton of calories and taste. Here is the mix:
1 part peanuts, raisins
0.5 part craisins, m&ms, chocolate chips, almonds
If my memory serves me, a pound of it (3 cups maybe) has at least 2800 calories. It isn't the best in the heat w/ all the chocolate, but the morning after it has melted it becomes nugget clusters.

There are lots of interesting trail mix combinations in "The Great Gorp Contest" which is still available at:,2646,2046,00.html.

craisins on 03/17/2005 11:40:00 MST Print View

I tried a product called Craisins on one of my longer hikes. They are cranberries sweetened with orange juice (I believe, memory fails me), and dried like raisins. Very sweet and tangy. I used them with yogurt glazed raisins, M&M's (peanut), banana chips, and yogurt glazed pretzels. My son and I really liked it!

I have been using this tool for several years developed by the Univ. of Illinois to determine my food quantities and nutrition for trips:
Once you get the hang of it, it really does a great job.
