I came home, and there was an Original Trail mix bag on the counter. After i ate about 2 cups i look on the back of the bag for the info, and to my amuzment:
208 cal per 1/4 cups (i had 2 cups in 5 minutes: thats 1664 cal)
8.4g of protein
14g of fat
12g of carbs

Is this not awesome bulk food or what?
The mix contained peanuts, raisins, sunflower seds, cashews, almonds, pumping seeds, vegetable oil, salt.

cool, how much they cost?

i'm not sure but i'd say under 4 dollars, canadian. its 1 kg, and portion size is 38g. I think its a good add of maybe half or one cup a day

1 kilo = 1000 grams

you can have 416 cal per day for about two weeks on one bag of trail mix.

the secret is the nuts and raisins

I have been telling young bulkers for years that 1 cup of almonds is almost 1000 cals

make your own trail mix of nothing but nuts and raisins

the dried banannas could be high cals too
