February 4, 2013—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read, price & availability may have changed.
Here's another one of those products that describes itself quite well, without any further elaboration by the Trader Joe's editorial department. Then again, we wouldn't be doing our job if we left if up to the product label to tell the whole story…
Once upon a time, there was a Trek Mix called Simply Almonds, Cashews & Chocolate. It was a straightforward mix of freshly roasted almonds & cashews, crunchy and savory and sublimely satisfying. The nuts were joined by a generous number of semi-sweet chocolate chunks, just enough to fulfill your desire for something sweet, without overwhelming your sweet tooth. This Trek Mix quickly became a sensation throughout the land, with followers from Portland (OR) to Portland (ME). It was then that we knew we had to act. We had to make this mix even easier to enjoy.
That, folks, brings us right up to the present day, when you can enjoy Trader Joe's Just a Handful of Simply Almonds, Cashews & Chocolate Trek Mix. It's the same mix that took the nation by storm, packed conveniently in 1.5 ounce pouches, so you can take some with you wherever you might need to go. Each 15 ounce bag contains 10 of these individual sized packages, and we're selling the whole kit & kaboodle for the terrific everyday price of $5.49. You'll find it with our other nuts, dried fruits and trek mixes.
