Trail mixes have evolved and changed significantly over the years. Once known as primarily a mixture of raisins and peanuts, trail mix now refers to any combination of dried fruit, nuts, seeds, granola, and even chocolate. Trail mixes are not the same as snack mixes which include candy type food, as well as chips, pretzels and nuggets.
Trail mix got its name because it was developed as a nutritious food that was easy to take along on hikes. Today for the same reasons of portability and nutrition, it is a very popular snack or mini-meal among young millennials and Gen Zs. According to How America’s Eating Habits Are Changing, a report from New York-based Private Label Manufacturers Association, 50% of millennials average at least four meals or snacks per day, and 7 percent say they snack or graze throughout the day. Hiking is not required! These snacks account for as much as 25 percent of all calories consumed among these groups.
