More Than A Mouthful Trek Mix
October 6, 2014—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
More Than A Mouthful is a blend of dried cranberries from Massachusetts, dry roasted California almonds bathed in 58% cacao dark chocolate and sprinkled with crystalline Turbinado (aka Demerara) sugar and coarse sea salt from the San Francisco Bay, roasted and salted pumpkin seeds (aka pepitas) from Mexico, and crunchy pretzel nibs with a Greek yogurt flavored coating. While a quick reading of that description may be impossible, it should give you some idea as to where we came up with the name.
You may recognize the dark chocolate-turbinado-sea salt-almonds as something you can buy separately at Trader Joe's. Those were our inspiration, but they were too big for this mix, so we went to our supplier and asked for smaller almonds. It was a simple fix that made them an excellent sweet-salty-crunchy foil to the tart-chewy cranberries and tart-creamy-crunchy pretzels. It's a good mix. You should try it. We're selling each 14 ounce bag for $5.49, every day.
