Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters Giveaway

by Meghann on October 29, 2009

The Cick Fil A minis get me every time

IMG_4706

My supervisor was kind enough to bring in a large order of Chicken Minis today and I couldn’t resist. Chick Fil A is the one fast food place I can never say no to and oddly enough its the only one that I have ate at since I started this blog. The little mini was only a couple of bites and totally ‘worth it.’

Lunch was another fun twist on left overs. I feel like all my lunches have been left overs lately at least they’re left overs with a twist. 😉

I cooked an extra Sun Dried Tomato Chicken Sausage on the George Foreman last night and today I made a sandwich with it.

IMG_4719

Between two slice of an Arnolds Thin I had the chicken sausage, Chavrie goat cheese, tomato, spinach and mustard.

On the side was the last 1/4 or so of my Stuffed Acorn from last night.

Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters Giveaway…

In honor of the launch of the New Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters MyBlogSpark.com sent me a snack pack to sample and review the new clusters on my blog.

NVGNC_Prize_Pack

According to the site:

Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters are a bite size blend of 100% natural ingredients that include select roasted nuts, whole grain oats and a touch of honey – a wholesome and delicious pick-me-up any time of the day. If you love nuts, you´ll enjoy this flavorful little snack featuring the perfect combination of sweet & salty flavors paired with a crunchy texture that you can see and taste. And with the first unique cluster-shaped granola packaged in a handy re-sealable pouch, it´s perfect for sharing on the trails or in your living room!

Anyone else rely on Nature Valley granola bars in college? They seemed to always be the cheapest granola bar at the grocery store especially with the Buy One Get One Free sales constantly surrounding them.

A couple of years ago I stopped purchasing the granola bars due to the lackluster ingredient list. When I was introduced to the nut clusters I was happy to see the ingredient list was slightly shorter and the nutritional stats weren’t too bad either.

This morning I put the clusters to the ultimate taste test and sampled all 4 flavors.

Honey Roasted Peanut.

Overall each cluster was very sweet, but still taste great. They were fun to crunch on a
nd I loved how I could see whole nuts in each piece. The clusters would be a perfect snack on a hike or something easy to pack for a trip. Its creative spin on a traditional granola bar that I really enjoyed trying. 🙂

1 Jessica October 29, 2009 at 12:57 pm

I’ve never been camping or hiking, but if I was, it would probably be some almonds or homemade trail mix. I didn’t know chik fil a had minis.

2 Leah October 29, 2009 at 12:57 pm

I always like to snack on beef jerky or raw almonds or fruit leather!

3 Nicole October 29, 2009 at 12:57 pm

I love to take carrots and hummus with me hiking! Or pretty much anywhere, actually.

4 Andee (LAEasyMeals) October 29, 2009 at 12:58 pm

I love those clusters, they are so addicting! I like to take bars, apples, trail mix anything that is light and filling

5 Jessica October 29, 2009 at 1:01 pm

Apples are refreshing and filling for any endurance-based event!

6 Stefanie October 29, 2009 at 1:04 pm

I always pack a banana when hiking, it cures my hunger everytime!

7 Jess October 29, 2009 at 1:05 pm

I go hiking in the Shenandoah Moutains a lot and I usually bring Kashi granola bars!! MMM 🙂 I’m allergic to corn syrup and I’m glad it isn’t in the Nut Clusters, even though it is still in the granola bars!

8 Susan October 29, 2009 at 1:06 pm

Peanut butter sandwiches! Especially after they get all mushed up in my bag 😉

9 Emily October 29, 2009 at 1:06 pm
10 Meg C. October 29, 2009 at 1:06 pm

any trail mix is my fave, especially the ones with chocolate in them!

11 Lesley October 29, 2009 at 1:07 pm

My favorite snack while hiking is my homemade trail mix and a granola bar.

15 Tiffany October 29, 2009 at 1:11 pm

Pumpkin seeds 😀

16 Jasmine T October 29, 2009 at 1:12 pm

22 samialyssa31 October 29, 2009 at 1:20 pm

Fruit LEATHER IS so yummy for hiking. Oh! And freeze dried fruit. Okay and one more thing, cocoa roasted almonds! 🙂

23 Anisha October 29, 2009 at 1:21 pm

I grew up in Japan so my family would take “onigiri”–little rice balls wrapped with nori seaweed! simple to make and so tasty!

24 maren October 29, 2009 at 1:22 pm

i’d love to try those! love their granola bars… my favorite snack to take hiking would probably be something typical and expected like trail mix. but i like to make my own, with a mix of all my favorite things!

25 feetinmotion October 29, 2009 at 1:23 pm

I love eating grapes during any kind of hiking or walking. They are easy to eat and quench your thirst and hunger. I also like the nature valley’s sweet and salty bars or even the regular hard granola bars. Of course I like to smack them against a table or hard surface to break them up so I don’t hurt my teeth. Great blog by the way! I love reading it 🙂

26 alyssa October 29, 2009 at 1:25 pm

fiber one chocolate chip granola bars. they’re so addicting!

27 Jenna October 29, 2009 at 1:26 pm

i love all your meal ideas!
jenna

28 Erin October 29, 2009 at 1:26 pm

Trail mix : )

29 Ashley October 29, 2009 at 1:26 pm

I like bringing Kashi TLC bars to snack on while hiking. I tried the nut clusters the other week and they are good. A little sweet but nice to munch on.

30 Theresa October 29, 2009 at 1:26 pm

I’ve never been hiking or camping either, but I think that I’d probably rely on granola bars, almonds, and turkey jerky.

31 caronae October 29, 2009 at 1:27 pm

I like to take any kind of bar on a hike.trail run with me. They’re the most convenient. I also like dried bananas!

32 Evan Thomas October 29, 2009 at 1:28 pm

Clif moJo bars are great

33 Brandi October 29, 2009 at 1:28 pm

cool! My favorite hiking snack would have to be trail mix, hands down. And some kind with a little chocolate in it. It’s the best!

I used to eat those bars in college all the time, too! I haven’t seen these clusters yet, though.

34 Amanda October 29, 2009 at 1:28 pm

We hike in the Adirondack mountains and the best hiking snack is a clif bar! It recharges you and it is quick to eat and easy to carry! Love them!!

35 MelissaNibbles October 29, 2009 at 1:29 pm

I’d love to try them. The last time I went hiking I brought oats in a jar!

36 Kyle October 29, 2009 at 1:30 pm

Well, now I really want to go hiking – but I’d have to say GORP, aka “good ol’ raisins and peanuts.” But obviously I add chocolate, too. Thanks!

37 Rebecca October 29, 2009 at 1:30 pm

larabars would be perfect for hiking!

38 Amanda October 29, 2009 at 1:30 pm

I usually bring clif bars to hike/ski! They are easy to eat on the go – but now that I am reading some of these other comments, it looks like I might need to mix it up a bit!!

39 jennourish October 29, 2009 at 1:31 pm

I always pack pb&j and trail mix!

40 megan October 29, 2009 at 1:32 pm

fruit snacks – especially on long hikes. perfect for a quick burst of sugar 🙂

41 Michele October 29, 2009 at 1:32 pm

I tend to take Lunabars everywhere I go… especially on hikes.

42 biz319 October 29, 2009 at 1:32 pm

Whole Foods had a dark chocolate GORP mixture that was to die for! But I haven’t had it since I became diabetic 🙁

43 Megan October 29, 2009 at 1:33 pm

I’m not a big hiker/camper, but if I’m going, I DEF need gorp (plus M&Ms) and s’mores. YUMMM!!

44 Jacqueline October 29, 2009 at 1:33 pm

Trail mix, duh 🙂 lol

45 Juli D. October 29, 2009 at 1:33 pm

We love Trail Mix. Since our hikes are often 5 or 6 nights and we carry all our food for the week – we have to have low weight and high cal. Nuts + dried fruit + chocolate is the perfect mix!

46 Holly October 29, 2009 at 1:34 pm

I love eating CLIF bars while hiking. They just seem so “outdoorsy “- guess it’s the picture on the wrapper!!

47 Grace October 29, 2009 at 1:34 pm

My favorite snack to taking hiking/camping is probably energy or granola bars.

48 Robin October 29, 2009 at 1:34 pm

My favorite snack to carry is a Luna bar. Yum.

49 Kate October 29, 2009 at 1:35 pm

I love to bring kashi bars – sweet and filling!

50 Katy S. October 29, 2009 at 1:35 pm

Homemade trail mix

51 Holly October 29, 2009 at 1:35 pm

Barney Butter and banana sandwich. My fav!

52 allie October 29, 2009 at 1:36 pm

definitely peanut butter sammys- no jelly. smushed up and soooo good by the time the top of the mountain is reached!

53 Beth October 29, 2009 at 1:36 pm

My boyfriend and I love to take Cliff Bars when we hike (esp carrot cake!), they taste like a treat but they definitely take care of hunger too.

54 Julie October 29, 2009 at 1:36 pm

My favorite hiking fuel is a PB & sliced banana sandwich!

55 amy October 29, 2009 at 1:37 pm

57 christina October 29, 2009 at 1:37 pm

58 Abby (Abbys Vegan Eats) October 29, 2009 at 1:37 pm

I don’t bike often BUT I walk/hike a lot and always take a huge bag of raw veggies, a larabar, and a banana or apple… those little fruit leathers are good, though, a lot lighter than a big ol piece of fruit! 🙂

59 Melissa October 29, 2009 at 1:38 pm

We usually always have to bring some red vines licorice when we go camping. 🙂

60 suzanne October 29, 2009 at 1:38 pm

I would have to say trail mix, water and an apple!

61 Britt - Runnerbelle October 29, 2009 at 1:38 pm

Definitely homemade trail mix, but must include M&M’s. 🙂

62 Shauna October 29, 2009 at 1:39 pm

63 Laura October 29, 2009 at 1:39 pm

65 Jess October 29, 2009 at 1:40 pm

My favorite hiking snack is dried fruit and nuts. Those nut clusters look soo yummy! Perfect for a hiking snack…

66 soup October 29, 2009 at 1:42 pm

sunflower seeds!! preferably flavored:)

67 JW October 29, 2009 at 1:42 pm

I love taking along homemade trail mix or clif bars.

68 Jeannie October 29, 2009 at 1:42 pm

A peanut butter sandwich. And if I’m really feeling sassy I’ll throw some banana on it too. YUM! It’s the best when you get to the top (or end) of a hike. SOOO delicious!

69 Jessica (Mile High Jess) October 29, 2009 at 1:43 pm

We always take the peanut butter Nature Valley bars, fruit, pretzels and lots of water. We also take Gu Chomps depending on how far we’re going. Definitely a necessity when climbing 14ers.

70 eatolive October 29, 2009 at 1:43 pm

trail mix alllll the way!!! 🙂

71 Diana October 29, 2009 at 1:44 pm

Luna Bars – especially the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut flavor. Yum.

73 Ashlee October 29, 2009 at 1:45 pm

When I was little, my mom always made homemade trail mix (which I still love), but now I like Larabars or fruit leathers.

74 Kristie Lynn October 29, 2009 at 1:45 pm

Clif bars… mostly because I’m lazy & I know they’ll keep the hunger away. If I’m feeling more ambitious I’ll throw together a honey-wheat pretzel/craisin/cinnamon almond trail mix. 🙂

75 J.J. October 29, 2009 at 1:46 pm

Trail Mix!

76 Allison October 29, 2009 at 1:47 pm

I’m a traditional girl. I just can’t get away from trail mix (preferably full of whole nuts and peanut butter chips! Love it and all the variations. Thanks for the great giveaway!! 🙂

77 Holly October 29, 2009 at 1:47 pm

Definitely good old fashioned trail mix…especially if it features chocolate pieces! Thanks for the giveaway!

78 Justy2003 October 29, 2009 at 1:48 pm

I love trail mix and dried fruit! Especially dried pears…yum!

79 Jaime October 29, 2009 at 1:49 pm

Last time I went hiking I brought yogurt covered pretzels and they were a huge hit! 🙂

I noticed recently that NV don’t used corn syrup anymore…that made me happy!

80 busylittlelexi October 29, 2009 at 1:49 pm

I like to make my own mix of small cookies, crackers, nuts, dried fruits & seeds. Great giveaway!

81 Anne P October 29, 2009 at 1:49 pm

granola bars and fruit!

82 ksquared22 October 29, 2009 at 1:49 pm

well if chik fil-a was more outdoor activities friendly that’d be my choice…yum. Nothing screams hiking like trail mix…peanuts, alonds, m &ms, raisins…

83 Becky October 29, 2009 at 1:49 pm

Apples are my favorite! Naturally portable and delicious!

84 S October 29, 2009 at 1:50 pm

I love sandwiches as a hiking snack. My boyfriend and I went hiking earlier this fall and took along ginormous peanut butter jelly and banana sandwiches and BLTs. Sandwiches leave no mess or trash, they’re easy to assemble when you’re camping out or staying in a cabin, and they’re yummy!

P.S. I really hope you win the blogger contest!

85 molly October 29, 2009 at 1:50 pm

GORP!

86 Angie McGovern October 29, 2009 at 1:51 pm

I love taking oranges on a hike. After I eat it I put a little piece of the peel in my water bottle for a little bit of flavor. yummy!

87 Stephanie October 29, 2009 at 1:51 pm

My favorite snack to bring would definitely be granola. It is so satisfying and delicious!

88 thebalancebroad October 29, 2009 at 1:51 pm

This is a super boring answer, but probably a Clif Zbar or a Larabar!

89 Marianne in Auburn October 29, 2009 at 1:52 pm

In the words of a wise man “bagels are beautiful for backpacking”!! Of course along with some pb and honey.

I also love trail mix (gorp-good old fashioned raisins and peanuts -what we called it at summer camp way back when) but have to add mm’s for the full effect!!

90 Carolyn October 29, 2009 at 1:53 pm

GORP, obviously. Any time I’m going into the woods for more than a couple days, all snacks take a back seat to this energy-dense, nutrient-filled snack item. Of course, I’m known to dress it up with a billion add-ins, so maybe it should be GORP+++. (Note: shredded coconut does NOT work when in the woods for a week or more. Blech).

91 Ashlee October 29, 2009 at 1:55 pm

I like to bring PB&J’s

92 Miss N October 29, 2009 at 1:56 pm

I love Trader Joe’s Apple/Strawberry/Blueberry cereal bars. They’re exactly like nutrigrain bars except for no funny ingredients 🙂 They do have a lot of sugar, but it’s totally “worth it”!

93 Noel October 29, 2009 at 1:57 pm

I love trail mix and GORP–I’m old school

94 Tracy October 29, 2009 at 1:57 pm

I love a mix of almonds, TJ’s High Fiber O’s, some dried fruit (whatever I can scrounge up) and pretzel pieces. It’s the perfect combo of sweet and salty!

95 Grace October 29, 2009 at 1:59 pm

I like to take homemade trail mixes!

96 Jessica October 29, 2009 at 1:59 pm

My absolute favorite are the Kashi – crunchy granola bars!

97 aileen October 29, 2009 at 1:59 pm

I like bananas and raw almonds… on a hike or for an office snack. Can’t go wrong with those two.

98 Jocelyn October 29, 2009 at 2:00 pm

My favorite snack would have to be beans cooked over a fire! YUM. So satisfying…especially when you arecamping in the cold 🙂

99 Holly W October 29, 2009 at 2:02 pm

I’ll usually pack a pbj and an apple. Not very exciting, but good!!

100 Sara October 29, 2009 at 2:02 pm

peanuts & raisins

101 Alexis October 29, 2009 at 2:02 pm

Apples! Always gives you that extra refreshing boost.

102 ashley October 29, 2009 at 2:04 pm

103 Kate October 29, 2009 at 2:05 pm

I am traditional–dried fruit and nuts 🙂

104 Amy October 29, 2009 at 2:06 pm

My favorite hiking snack are nuts!

105 Stacie October 29, 2009 at 2:07 pm

TJs anti-oxidant mix!

106 Jessica October 29, 2009 at 2:07 pm

Trail mix!! I like to make my own with cereal, dried cherries, cranberries, blueberries, and dark choc chips. Yummy!

107 meyergirl October 29, 2009 at 2:09 pm

I got a sample of the nut clusters a few weeks ago and loved them. I think they’d be great on a hike in place of trail mix. P.S. I am giving away two breast cancer awareness prize packs on my blog: http://lovinlosing.com/.

108 Allie B. October 29, 2009 at 2:09 pm

My mom always made a mix she called gorp. It was so good! Peanuts, m&M’s, mini marshmallow, raisins and whatever else we had on hand! It is so good and I love it! The sweet and salty combo is great!

109 Emily October 29, 2009 at 2:10 pm

When my dad and I went hiking he would ALWAYS make homemade trail mix! It was great!! We also always brough Sun Chips! Delisssh!

I do have a silly question though, do you eat the outter skin of the acorn squash? Just curious!

110 Jen October 29, 2009 at 2:10 pm

Goldfish crackers! Because they remind me of one of the first hikes I went on with my husband.

111 Mary October 29, 2009 at 2:10 pm

I usually take a variety with me of Clif Bars, Lara Bars and almonds or trail mix. I know that’s more than 1 favorite…but I like them all!

112 Joanna October 29, 2009 at 2:11 pm

My mom is much better at providing the hiking snacks, so if i have the opportunity to hike with her (rare), we have homemade gorp! I usually stick to the fruit leathers and Luna bars or granola bars. Easy.

113 Katie October 29, 2009 at 2:13 pm

I love homemade trail mix. You can put in whatever you want – my favorite mix is almonds, crasins, dark chocolate m&ms and pretzels. delish!

114 Internal Peace October 29, 2009 at 2:16 pm

I love Luna bars because they’re portable and low glycemic!

115 sarah October 29, 2009 at 2:16 pm

barely naked brand granola bars. sooo good and very filling!

116 Valerie October 29, 2009 at 2:18 pm

I love PB&J! Just gotta make sure it doesn’t get squished when you pack it!

117 rdb27 October 29, 2009 at 2:18 pm

definitely clif bars and apple slices are my favorite snacks during hikes!

118 Jamie in Arkansas October 29, 2009 at 2:18 pm

My favorite portable snack is a Clif MoJo Mountain Mix bar!! 🙂 num num

119 Lacey October 29, 2009 at 2:21 pm

When I climbed the Schilthorn in Switzerland a few years ago, we ate Nutella sandwiches when we got to the halfway point. It’s too rich for an everyday snack but we needed the extra energy!

120 Julia October 29, 2009 at 2:22 pm

Oh wow, those look good!

On a hike I like to take a banana. It’s filling and portable and not too sweet 🙂
Or an apple.
Chocolate never hurts either 🙂

121 Mary October 29, 2009 at 2:22 pm

my favorite? are granola bars and pretzels.

122 Kimberly Lee October 29, 2009 at 2:24 pm

My favorite snacks to take hiking/camping are granola bars and fruit strips.

123 Eliza October 29, 2009 at 2:25 pm

A good ol’ PB&J with a banana. And a mini snickers at the top! YUM 🙂

124 Lauren October 29, 2009 at 2:26 pm

Apples and Almonds + PB & J if we are going to out a while!

125 hopefulrunner October 29, 2009 at 2:26 pm

What an awesome giveaway, looks yummy!
I like to take bars, fruit, and almond butter and banana sandwiches with me when I go on long hikes.

126 Rosey Rebecca October 29, 2009 at 2:26 pm

I love taking TrueNorth Almond Clusters on hikes. I once hiked 9 miles and only had those to eat the whole time.

I had a sundried tomato chicken sausage for lunch today too! I sauteed it with an egg and some cheese and put it on a WW english muffin. It was amazing!!

127 Abby (Nibble, Nourish, Run) October 29, 2009 at 2:27 pm

Trail mix!! With plenty of dried fruit, nuts, seeds and M&M’s of course…absolutely essential!

128 Lanie October 29, 2009 at 2:27 pm

it’s trail mix (with some sort of chocolate) or clif bars for me!

129 Rae October 29, 2009 at 2:32 pm

mmm…..peanut butter crackers!! I know they arent the healthiest, but they keep me energized and full!!

130 BethP October 29, 2009 at 2:32 pm

My dad would always pack Starbursts and dole them out to us on hiking and cross country ski trips when i was a kid.

131 emmy October 29, 2009 at 2:33 pm

I LOVE peanut butter on graham crackers!! Especially after they sit in the pack for a while and the flavors really meld 🙂

132 Jerilynne October 29, 2009 at 2:35 pm

Can I win even if I’ve never been hiking or camping? I mean, I went to Girl Scout camp when I was younger but that’s about it, lol.

I have, however, tried the NV nut clusters — they are are especially tasty when mixed with some plain greek yogurt!

133 Danielle J October 29, 2009 at 2:35 pm

All about the trail mix 🙂

134 Rachel October 29, 2009 at 2:38 pm

I don’t camp and the only hikes I’ve been on haven’t been long enough to need a snack! lol I think I’d do some sort of trail mix w/ nuts, dried fruit and chocolate! The nut clusters seem like they’d be perfect for this!

135 christina October 29, 2009 at 2:39 pm

i love taking a piece of fruit and triscuits!

136 sue October 29, 2009 at 2:40 pm

i usually take apples and trail mix (with lots of chocolate!)

137 HEATHERFEATHER October 29, 2009 at 2:42 pm

i am not much of a hiker – it’s a little flat in louisiana – BUT… i am ALWAYS prepared! you will never find mme without some emergency stash, typically a piece of fruit and a bar of some sort- lately these have been kashi honey almond flax… these clusters do look delicious!

138 Christy October 29, 2009 at 2:43 pm

We always take Lara Bars with us hiking and maybe some beef jerky for some extra protein. Yum!

139 Diana October 29, 2009 at 2:43 pm

I love dried fruit and almonds on camping trips. Dried kiwis, pears, and peaches and awesome!

140 Laura October 29, 2009 at 2:43 pm

145 Betherann October 29, 2009 at 2:47 pm

I like to bring trail mix that has LOTS of different ingredients. I also enjoy a good LUNA Bar.

146 Allison R. October 29, 2009 at 2:47 pm

Whenever we go camping I am always sure to bring some fruit and nut butter. It’s great fuel and a better snack than most of the food my other friends eat 🙂

147 Lauren October 29, 2009 at 2:50 pm

I know this sounds very cliche, but I love trail mix. Any kind of nuts and tried fruit!

148 Lindsay October 29, 2009 at 2:50 pm

Hi there! I’d def bring luna bars. They are delish!

149 Melissa G October 29, 2009 at 2:51 pm

Peanut butter lara bars, Apples, PB & J. All the super filling light stuff!

150 Kate October 29, 2009 at 2:54 pm

That acorn squash looks SO GOOD! I am not much of a hiker, but I would imagine that my snack would be almonds. I love them for a quick snack!

151 Katie October 29, 2009 at 2:54 pm

I love to take turkey jerky and a combo of dried fruits and nuts.

152 Shinobu October 29, 2009 at 2:54 pm

I didn’t bring anything when I went camping, the people I went with brought a cooler. It was the first time I had Nathan’s hotdogs (the best ever, but so bad for you 🙁 ).

If I had to bring a snack it would probably be a granola bar. I love Nature Valley Cinnamon granola bars. 🙂

153 Erica October 29, 2009 at 2:56 pm

I have SO been wanting to try these. I liked taking dried fruit along when hiking or a jammin trail mix.

154 rebecca October 29, 2009 at 2:56 pm

peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!

155 Nikita October 29, 2009 at 2:57 pm

I usually carry home made trail mix or home made granola with me 🙂

156 gretchen October 29, 2009 at 2:58 pm

i LOVE homemade trail mix – raisins, cheerios, maybe m & m’s…stuff that’s a throwback to my childhood 🙂

157 runningmind October 29, 2009 at 2:59 pm

Dried fruit, mango especially!

158 amanda @ fake ginger October 29, 2009 at 3:00 pm

I’m a big fan of granola bars on hikes. I know, cliche, but they’re so yummy!

159 Ada October 29, 2009 at 3:00 pm

I love apples while hiking since they provide great energy:)

160 peaceandpeanutbutter October 29, 2009 at 3:01 pm

I love bringing bars with me (anything with choclate, like a Chocolate Brownie Z-Bar!, or a yummy Larabar!)

161 Kelly October 29, 2009 at 3:01 pm

I hike often in New Hampshire and my husband I LOVE to make home made trail mix along to munch on with xtra m&ms….these granola bites would fit in perfectly!

162 Valerie October 29, 2009 at 3:03 pm

I usually hike with an apple and pb&j. It seems to give me the right amount of energy to get through a decent hike!

163 Grace October 29, 2009 at 3:03 pm

Nuts, of course! There is nothing better than a good combo of nuts, dried fruit and a bit of chocolate. Along with plenty of water/gatorade.

164 amy October 29, 2009 at 3:03 pm

Beef Jerky, Granola, Nuts, Dried Fruit…

165 Sarah R October 29, 2009 at 3:04 pm

I’m going to go with lara or cliff bars. Easy and portable.

166 Andrea October 29, 2009 at 3:06 pm

Trail mix, any kind I’m not picky!

167 Anna October 29, 2009 at 3:07 pm

My favorite new discovery are little sandwiches made from almond butter on graham crackers!

168 Dani October 29, 2009 at 3:07 pm

I love trail mix and goldfishes.

169 trinichiqn October 29, 2009 at 3:07 pm

I love Nature Valley, they are my quick breakfast or snack on the go in fact I had the cranberry and Pomegranate trail mix bar for a mid morning snack today.

I have been hiking only once and I like homemade trail mix, nuts and dried fruit and a little chocolate chips.

170 Sara October 29, 2009 at 3:10 pm

Clif bars!

171 Carrie @ I See Monsters October 29, 2009 at 3:10 pm

I don’t hike or camp very often but I do kayak/canoe all summer long! My favorite snack when I’m paddling is to make my own trail mix with random bits from my cupboard like cereal, dried fruit, nuts and always, always chocolate chips!! 🙂

172 Shannon October 29, 2009 at 3:10 pm

I love bringing a simple ole’ PBJ for a snack, plus some good trail mix! My dad’s a master though, and even has his travel coffee and dehydrated camping meals haha. 😉

173 Elisa October 29, 2009 at 3:11 pm

Trail mix is the old standby…but the best

174 Maria Ann October 29, 2009 at 3:12 pm

trail mix of course! It is the perfect hiking snack because you can customize it and “bulk it up”!

175 Andrea October 29, 2009 at 3:15 pm

any sort of portable fruit simply because it’s easy to grab out if hunger hits. Apples, bananas, pears..anything really! Is it too cliche to say trail mix though? love that stuff!

176 eurydice October 29, 2009 at 3:17 pm

apples and raw almonds

177 Tiffany J. October 29, 2009 at 3:19 pm

I love eating pistachios around the campfire. You can crack them open and try to toss the shell into the fire – if you miss – no big deal!

178 Ashley October 29, 2009 at 3:19 pm

I like traditional trail mix when hiking, full of dried cranberries and almonds…yum yum yum!

179 Sammi October 29, 2009 at 3:21 pm

I have honestly never been hiking but it is something I want to try sometime soon. Something that I would bring with me when I start hiking though would have to be trail mix (I know so many other people put that already!) but the salt of some nuts and sunflower seeds + a tiny bit of chocolate chips + dried fruit in with it would be a great on the go food for hiking.

180 lauren October 29, 2009 at 3:21 pm

Ive never actually been camping, but id say my favourite snack to take would probably be homemade trail mix or clif bars!

181 kilax October 29, 2009 at 3:23 pm

I love Nature’s Valley! I actually usually take their PB bar when I go on a walk. My husband and I have an on-going joke about how he ALWAYS has a Nature’s Valley granola bar on him, because he DOES! I would love to try the nut clusters! What a great giveaway!

182 CATIEDIDIT October 29, 2009 at 3:25 pm

I’m actually a big fan of taking homemade pb/oatmeal bars with me because the combo of the pb and the oatmeal really fills me up!

183 Katie October 29, 2009 at 3:27 pm

Crackers…not too crumbly like a granola bar and easy to throw a pre-portioned amount into a bag

184 Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) October 29, 2009 at 3:27 pm

I love leftovers with a twist! I actually really enjoy leftovers.

I like taking granola with me when I go hiking!

185 Jessica October 29, 2009 at 3:27 pm

I have to go with homemade traditional trail mix. Nothing beats the combination of sweet/salty.

186 Cathy October 29, 2009 at 3:27 pm

I love packing PB&Js to snack on while hiking.

187 kendall October 29, 2009 at 3:28 pm

pb/banana sandwiches and trail mix!

188 Laura October 29, 2009 at 3:31 pm

I love apples on hikes because they are jucy and crisp and also i like a trail mix bar (like Nature Valley) that have a mix of nuts/chocolate/granola.

189 Kim October 29, 2009 at 3:32 pm

I know it is really boring, but I just love the simplicity of trail mix on a hike or camping. The nuts pack some good protein and the raisins and M&Ms sweeten it up.

190 Janelle October 29, 2009 at 3:36 pm

PB, banana, and honey sammies are the best for hiking!

191 Gina G October 29, 2009 at 3:36 pm

sounds pathetic but my family hasnt ever gone camping or hiking =( i have always really wanted to though! In the future, i think i would bring trail mix and a bar!

192 Dawn October 29, 2009 at 3:38 pm

I love Smucker’s Uncrustables. Yes, I could just make PB&J myself, but these are so easy and so tasty. Plus, the seamed-together break means there’s no PB&J leaking all over the place while I’m eating 🙂

193 Emily October 29, 2009 at 3:40 pm

homemade trail mix!! With lots of nuts, dried fruit, cereal and something chocolate (if it’s not too hot!!)

194 Kate G. October 29, 2009 at 3:42 pm

PB&J is definitely one of my favorites for hiking (or any outdoor activity for that matter!), i like when the bread and pb and jam get a chance to blend all together. Haha that sounds gross but it really is good!!

Kate G.

195 Colleen October 29, 2009 at 3:43 pm

I love to take dried fruit and nuts.

196 Elysha October 29, 2009 at 3:43 pm

I love simple foods on a hike… crackers, dry cereal, apple/orange slices, and a soft peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch at the top!

197 Julie October 29, 2009 at 3:44 pm

kashi/clif bars, and trail mix/granola.

198 Beth October 29, 2009 at 3:45 pm

I love making my own trailmix with maple & brown sugar mini shredded wheat, raisins and coconut!

199 Heather ODonnell October 29, 2009 at 3:49 pm

My favorite take-along snack is dried fruit. Strawberries, cherries, craisins. So yummy!!

200 Sara October 29, 2009 at 3:50 pm

Homemade granola bars are the best!

201 Maureen October 29, 2009 at 3:51 pm

Apples, trail mix and lots of water!

202 Michelle October 29, 2009 at 3:51 pm

I like to take granola bars/lara bars/cliff bars… I guess it’s safe to say I like bars lol 🙂 But they are easy and portable. 🙂

203 Carrie H October 29, 2009 at 3:56 pm

Living in Wyoming, I hike and camp A LOT! My favorite snack/lunch used to be one of those tuna/crackers/relish/mayo packs, but lately it’s a simple Larabar! Yum.

We’ve gotten over two feet of snow here in Wyoming over the last couple days, and this conversation is making me wish it was summer!

204 Kristin October 29, 2009 at 3:57 pm

Homemade trail mix- mixed nuts, raisins, and M & Ms. But these new Nut Clusters look like they’d be a great addition to the mix!

205 Emily October 29, 2009 at 3:57 pm

I, too, relied on Nature Valley granola bars in college, and have since moved on to other bars with better nutritional facts. 🙂 I’d love to try to nut clusters, however!

My favorite hiking/camping snack is GORP…good ol’ raisins and peanuts, with a healthy dose of chocolate chips mixed in. I only ever eat this when camping/hiking, so it always brings a smile to my face.

206 kristin October 29, 2009 at 3:57 pm

i loooooove lara bars! 🙂

207 Danielle October 29, 2009 at 4:00 pm

Raw nuts, banana chips, dry cereal!

208 Aimee October 29, 2009 at 4:00 pm

I love the Kirkland brand dried fruit and nut mix from Costco.

209 jaime October 29, 2009 at 4:03 pm

A combo of an apple and some type of trail mix or granola bar!

210 Lizzy October 29, 2009 at 4:03 pm

I’ve never been hiking but camping i’ve done, but my favorite snack is trail mix by far because you have sweet and salty and the protein and crunch from the nuts are perfect when you need that pick me up!

http://saladdiva.wordpress.com

211 sue October 29, 2009 at 4:03 pm

we always use the same staple snacks for hiking in the summer and snowboarding in the winter: nature valley peanut butter granola bars, peanut butter and honey sandwiches, and some sort of durable fruit, usually apples and oranges.

212 Valerie October 29, 2009 at 4:05 pm

I take trail mix with me when I go hiking. Fitting, right? It has M&M’s, salted peanuts, raisins and pretzels. Yummy!

213 Steoh October 29, 2009 at 4:06 pm

Dates!! Yum 🙂

214 lowandbhold October 29, 2009 at 4:06 pm

Trail mix! And it has to have chocolate bits in it!

215 Tasha - The Clean Eating Mama October 29, 2009 at 4:07 pm

I love to eat apples and almond butter while out in nature – satisfies my hunger for quite a while!
Healthy Eating

216 faith in food October 29, 2009 at 4:08 pm

i used to grab a luna bar and piece of fruit, but these would be awesome! (trail mix was always a back up) these would also be awesome in greek yogurt and perfect for work on the run!

217 Jean October 29, 2009 at 4:14 pm

I have to sadly admit I’ve never been on a walk long enough to require a snack.
But these I would love to try for my snack at work or like you mentioned, while traveling! I love Nature’s Path Granola Bars in college…..the peanut butter ones……
Thanks!

218 Lisa October 29, 2009 at 4:15 pm

Although I don’t expend that many calories when hiking, I always use it as an excuse to go crazy with dried fruit, nuts and M&Ms!

219 Carla October 29, 2009 at 4:16 pm

Homemade trail mix for sure…my possibilities are ENDLESS!

This is my first comment ever, but I’ve been a reader for months…oops! BTW I’ve also been voting for you at home and at work – good luck!!

220 megan October 29, 2009 at 4:16 pm

My fave snack is GORP! 🙂

221 jperonto October 29, 2009 at 4:17 pm

Trail Mix for sure!

222 Catherine October 29, 2009 at 4:18 pm

Favorite hiking or camping snack is a toss up between granola bars and trail mix. The bars are great because they seem to fill me up better… but the trail mix is always nice because you can just grab handfuls as you go 🙂

223 Matt October 29, 2009 at 4:25 pm

Trail mix for sure. That stuff is crack!

224 asha October 29, 2009 at 4:28 pm

I love a PB&J on a hike or when I am camping, but then again I could eat it anytime!

225 courtlove111 October 29, 2009 at 4:28 pm

Nutty Bars…the little debbie kind. So bad…yet soooo good!!

226 jessica October 29, 2009 at 4:29 pm

CHEESE ITS!!!

227 Melissa P October 29, 2009 at 4:29 pm

I love peanut butter and jelly while hiking. It is the perfect balance of carbs, protein and a little something sweet.

228 Andrea October 29, 2009 at 4:30 pm

I love trail mix, dried apricots, and cheez its!

229 Nicole October 29, 2009 at 4:32 pm

hummus and crackers for sure!! I make the hubby carry the ice chest! 🙂

230 becky October 29, 2009 at 4:34 pm

wheat thins!

231 Kristen October 29, 2009 at 4:35 pm

It’s all about the oats and honey Nature Valley granola bars! They’re my absolute favorite. I’ll take them hiking, cycling, and everywhere in between!

232 Marian October 29, 2009 at 4:42 pm

I love to mix and match at the grocery store bulk bins to make my own trail mix….dried pineapple and chocolate covered almonds are a staple!

233 Molly @vegandorm October 29, 2009 at 4:44 pm

My favorite snack while hiking are clif bars or a pita with tofurky or just plain fruit. I love hiking!

234 Meaghen October 29, 2009 at 4:48 pm

My favourite snack are apples because once you’re done eating you can toss the core anywhere and it decomposes! No garbage to carry around!

235 Alyx October 29, 2009 at 4:48 pm

fig newtons were always brought on my family hiking trips too!!! so funny! but my fave is just some plain trailmix (m&ms are a must!)

236 Laura October 29, 2009 at 4:51 pm

I love taking nuts, clif bars and dried fruit on hikes. Don’t forget lots of water too!

237 ari October 29, 2009 at 4:52 pm

bars and fruit like apples are perfect hiking snacks!

238 Laura K October 29, 2009 at 4:53 pm

I like eating Clif bars and GORP while on hikes.

239 DiningAndDishing October 29, 2009 at 4:57 pm

My fave snack is a Cliff Bar – the pb flavor is the BEST!!

– Beth @ http://www.DiningAndDishing.com

240 Kathleen October 29, 2009 at 4:58 pm

I love those old time favorite Nab crackers! Haha, the orange ones are the best!

241 bbryn October 29, 2009 at 4:58 pm

Apples or homemade trail mix are my favorites to take on hikes

242 ariana October 29, 2009 at 5:06 pm

my family always bought crunch ‘n munch when we went camping… i think that’s the only time of the year we’d eat it.

243 luckytastebuds October 29, 2009 at 5:08 pm

I love clif energy bars on hiking trips! That and fig newtons. 🙂

244 Shannon October 29, 2009 at 5:09 pm

nuts and trail mix are the easiest things to take on a hike 🙂 but one can never go wrong with apples and carrots, too!

245 verbalriot October 29, 2009 at 5:14 pm

I love to bring hard boiled eggs….I know that might gross some people out but for some reason, I REALLY enjoy eating them in the outdoors!

246 Julia October 29, 2009 at 5:19 pm

I love to pack Luna Bars!!!

247 Mariel October 29, 2009 at 5:21 pm

Trail mix would be my go to choice!

248 Lily October 29, 2009 at 5:32 pm

whenever my boyfriend and i go hiking, we pack a lunch and eat it when we reach the top of the mountain. our lunch always contains peanut better sandwiches!!

249 Casey @ Double Scooped October 29, 2009 at 5:40 pm

Something simple and easy like a PB sandwich, a Cliff Bar, or a Luna Bar 🙂

250 Hallie October 29, 2009 at 5:49 pm

When I went to the Grand Canyon, I look Larabars on my hikes and they were great fuel for hiking in the desert heat.

251 Sam October 29, 2009 at 5:54 pm

I love Odwalla bars on long hikes! They give me enough “umph” without weighing me down on the trail!

252 Felicia October 29, 2009 at 5:55 pm

I don’t really go hiking, BUT if I did, I’d definitely take Cliff Bars (Chocolate Chip Peanut Crunch!) or almonds.

253 Marina October 29, 2009 at 5:59 pm

I never been hiking or camping, but I’m sure I would enjoy some good sandwiches and trail mixes. Fresh fruit is a must too!

254 Julia October 29, 2009 at 6:02 pm

Clif Bars are definitely my favorite hiking/camping snack. Light weight and easy to eat on the go!

255 sam October 29, 2009 at 6:04 pm

Odwalla bars! They are perfect for long hikes because they give you enough “umph” without weighing you down!

Also, anything with peanut butter is always a go-to for me.
But thats not just for hiking… that is everyday. 🙂

256 Naners October 29, 2009 at 6:05 pm

cereal mix! w/ nuts, dried fruit, various cereals, granola and other misc items that won’t spoil

257 AshB October 29, 2009 at 6:06 pm

hiking always remind me of toberlone and gummy fruit snacks that my dad would bring with us when hiking 🙂

258 melissa October 29, 2009 at 6:07 pm

A pb&j, trail mix and some fresh fruit is usually my go to! but these look very delish to add to my snack pack 🙂

259 Lindsey October 29, 2009 at 6:14 pm

My favorite snack to take camping is lara bars! yummy and all naturale : )

260 Karla October 29, 2009 at 6:19 pm

To be honest I’ve never taken a snack while hiking, although it probably would have been a good idea being that I was starving afterward!

Trail Mix or some portable fruit would probably be the way to go for me 🙂

261 sisrocks1996 October 29, 2009 at 6:32 pm

I have never had an opportunity to hike 🙁 I’d love to, but where I live there aren’t too many places to go.

262 Raquel October 29, 2009 at 6:34 pm

Peanut butter and jelly sandwich and an orange.
I just found your site and love it. I used to run and am so motivated to start again as soon as I recover from my cold. Thank you for your inspiration!

263 katie October 29, 2009 at 6:39 pm

i wish i had more time to hike, i love it! i would say trail mix or an apple, my favorite fruit.

264 Sarah October 29, 2009 at 6:39 pm

i love taking target’s smore’s trail mix…not the healthiest but definately a special hiking/camping treat!

265 Lizzie October 29, 2009 at 6:40 pm

Hmmm….this might be a little generic but nothing beats s’mores on a camping trip!…not exactly the healthiest answer 😉

266 Melissa October 29, 2009 at 6:52 pm

Hey Meghann!! Thanks for the sweet giveaway, I’m crossing my fingers!

My favorite adventure snack has got to be a peanut butter sandwich! Not really a traditional snack but its fun to take a pit stop in a scenic location and enjoy the surroundings while munching!

267 Jonny "A" Game October 29, 2009 at 7:00 pm

My go-to food for hiking is pb and pita sandwiches and homemade trail mix. nuts,fruit, and chocolate!

P.S. I just started a blog myself! Check it out sometime!

268 Megan October 29, 2009 at 7:05 pm

Trail mix baby!!!

269 chocolate pickle October 29, 2009 at 7:08 pm

I love to eat bananas and nuts for easy portability!

270 jds October 29, 2009 at 7:10 pm

Apples! Especially this time of year!

271 Christie October 29, 2009 at 7:18 pm

We go hiking and camping all the time. We like trail mix with the raisins and peanuts. Sometimes we take the pouches of tuna and some bread to make more of a meal.

272 Carol October 29, 2009 at 7:20 pm

Apples and nut butter!

273 elissa October 29, 2009 at 7:21 pm

I love camping and hiking and I love making homemade gorp with peanuts, m & m’s, raisins, pretzels in it. It’s easy healthy snack to munch on!

274 John Train October 29, 2009 at 7:25 pm

Trail mix=win

275 lauren October 29, 2009 at 7:26 pm

I’ve never been hiking but I think an apple and some almonds would be good to snack on!

276 Laura S October 29, 2009 at 7:26 pm

I like to take apples with me on a hike

277 Gina October 29, 2009 at 7:27 pm

I’d bring dried mango and papaya with mixed nuts =] Sounds good right now…

279 Mel October 29, 2009 at 7:29 pm

Trail mix & grapes 🙂

280 Allie (Live Laugh Eat) October 29, 2009 at 7:30 pm

I am always eyeing these nut clusters at the grocery store!! I love almond butter + banana sammies to take along. They get a little mushy but still delicious nonetheless!!

281 jsr October 29, 2009 at 7:31 pm

Living in the city I have a lot of opportunities for hiking. But if I did I would probably bring trail mix or apples and PB!

282 Ali October 29, 2009 at 7:37 pm

When hiking or camping I like to eat trail mix with almonds, coconut, granola and mini chocolate chips. So yummy!

283 Taylor October 29, 2009 at 7:38 pm

Bananas and peanut butter M&Ms! Might as well indulge in chocolate and PB if I’m working my butt off!

284 Katherine October 29, 2009 at 7:39 pm

Tempeh, avocado, Mary’s crackers and hummus! Oh and carrots! I also bring snacks like trail mix or a larabar.

285 carolyn~ October 29, 2009 at 7:43 pm

Clif bars! I tried one of these clusters (cant remember which flavor) they were awesome in my Greek yogurt!

286 Becca October 29, 2009 at 7:45 pm

We always make homemade trail mix we go out on the lake. Everyone can find something they want to add to the mix.

287 Natalie October 29, 2009 at 7:47 pm

I love packing energy bites for a hiking snack. I mix oats, pb, honey, whole wheat flour, and cinnamon and roll into bite sized balls. Perfect for a quick eat on the trail!

288 Erin October 29, 2009 at 7:51 pm

my favorite hiking snack would be a simple peanut butter and banana sandwich.

289 Jennifer October 29, 2009 at 7:52 pm

My favorite snack to take camping or hiking is trail mix hands down! I love that it is cheap, delicious and you can make your own at home too! 🙂

290 Melinda H. October 29, 2009 at 7:53 pm

I like to bring along some pre-bagged nut and dried fruit mixes. So goood! 🙂

291 Molly October 29, 2009 at 7:57 pm

I do a lot of hiking and camping, and I’ve made everything from thai peanut pasta to fondue in the woods. 🙂

292 Jenna N October 29, 2009 at 7:59 pm

Ive never tried these clusters but they sound yummy! My fav snack to take on the go is trail mix! any kind is yummmyy!

293 Lori October 29, 2009 at 8:02 pm

Love trail mix as it is easy to just grab a handul and continue on.

294 Leanne October 29, 2009 at 8:13 pm

homemade trail mix that includes nuts, chocolate, raisins and cereal

295 Rachel S October 29, 2009 at 8:14 pm

Definitely a yummy bag of almonds. They’re so easy to pack, mess-free, and really do the trick if your stomach’s empty!

296 Paige October 29, 2009 at 8:20 pm

I like to mix my on “trail combo” at Fresh Market: pistachios, white chocolate chips, dried cranberries, small pretzels, etc…Love some Fresh Market!

297 Lauren October 29, 2009 at 8:21 pm

I love to eat KIND bars while hiking. Something about these bars just seem so woodsy to me.

I’ve always wanted to try these nut clusters! Keeping my fingers crossed! 🙂

298 Katie F. October 29, 2009 at 8:23 pm

My favorite hiking snacks are Clif bars and orange slices. Easy to pack and eat without having to worry too much about needing clean hands–the bars have a wrapper and the oranges have the peel to hold onto!

Well for the shorter hikes it has to be one of Trader joe’s trail mix or cadburry chocolate
BUT if its the long ( 6-9 hrs) my mother’s yogurt & mango puree smoothies, french bread & humus.
and water of course.
🙂

301 Li October 29, 2009 at 8:27 pm

303 Tammy Eros October 29, 2009 at 8:42 pm

Trail mix, of course..but I always am a sucker for peanut butter or almond butter and jelly!

304 cait October 29, 2009 at 8:44 pm

Trail mix! Rice krispie treats are good too for some reason.

308 Bec October 29, 2009 at 8:57 pm

toblerone bar for sure is my fav camping/hiking snack!

309 caitlin October 29, 2009 at 8:59 pm

I am not a hiking/camping girl, but trail mix sounds appropriate 🙂

310 chasingthenow October 29, 2009 at 9:01 pm

I think granola bars are great for hikes because they are easy to take on the go and not messy at all, which is great!!!

311 Martha October 29, 2009 at 9:06 pm

When I go hiking or camping, I love to pack “PB graham-wiches” (peanut butter sandwiched between two grahams). They’re delicious, light-weight, and also give me some solid fuel for the remainder of my journey. Thanks for the giveaway, Meghann!

312 Becca October 29, 2009 at 9:08 pm

My family always packed hard candy– it’s a good way to stay hydrated and keep your mouth busy, plus on long hikes sometimes you need that little sugar rush!

313 Becca R. October 29, 2009 at 9:09 pm

gorp (good old raisins and peanuts) or trail mix

314 Danica October 29, 2009 at 9:12 pm

316 Erin October 29, 2009 at 9:25 pm

I love spicy cajun mix on a hike.

317 natalie October 29, 2009 at 9:32 pm

325 crystal October 29, 2009 at 10:24 pm

apples!

326 Kayla October 29, 2009 at 10:31 pm

Apples are great…. or pretzels.

327 linda October 29, 2009 at 10:35 pm

I also like to bring dried figs on hikes or a homemade cookie. Sometimes, a little sugar on a long hike is just the fuel that I need!

328 Jenn Eats Nutritiously Now October 29, 2009 at 10:44 pm

My favorite hiking snacks are roasted nuts.

329 Jessica October 29, 2009 at 10:45 pm

331 Jess October 29, 2009 at 10:57 pm

I love bringing grapes and cereal in baggies. So good!

332 runskaterun October 29, 2009 at 11:00 pm

My favorite snack to take on hikes is Clif bars. I recently discovered white chocolate macadamia flavored ones. Only way to describe them- three letters- omg.

333 heather @ then heather said October 29, 2009 at 11:21 pm

I love munching on seeds while hiking! Also- we used to hike with an orange when growing up. While walking we would be squeezing and playing with the oranges the whole way- and when we got to the end of out hike, my mom would pass out peppermint sticks or twizzlers for us to bite the ends off of and make into sweet straws- she would cut a slit in the orange for our “straws” and we would refuel with FRESH still-in-the-skin OJ 🙂

What a great giveaway!

334 Rachel October 29, 2009 at 11:41 pm

Yum! What a great giveaway. I love to bring along some nuts and dried fruit, maybe some whole grain crackers to balance things, and lots of water!

335 traynharder23 October 29, 2009 at 11:42 pm

apples. pink lady

336 Kristen October 29, 2009 at 11:44 pm

I love taking turkey jerky and some apple cinnamon rice cakes.

338 Rachel October 30, 2009 at 12:01 am

My favorite snack is for sure trader joe’s turkey jerky! Super flavorful, filling and easy to pack for any trip!

339 Kelly October 30, 2009 at 12:02 am

It may be cliche’, but I gotta have trail mix when hiking!

340 Nina October 30, 2009 at 12:09 am

I love to bring trail mix, but it has to include raw nuts, dried fruit, aaaand plenty of chocolate chips! 🙂

341 Tyly October 30, 2009 at 12:24 am

I love to take raw nuts with me! Yum!

342 Katherine October 30, 2009 at 1:31 am

My favorite snack to take with me is the Nature Valley Trail Mix Fruit & Nut bars (and I’m not even just making this up since the nut clusters are a Nature Valley product too… I promise!)! I love that they are like a condensed version of a handful of trail mix and super chewy : )

343 Jumanah October 30, 2009 at 5:55 am

I love to take peanut butter and crackers as a snack when hiking!

344 Alex October 30, 2009 at 6:58 am

Nut clusters are delicious! My favorite snacks I take with me are homemade trail mix of peanuts, craisins, raisins, almonds, and tiny morsels of bittersweet chocolate. An apple is always a must so I can refresh my mouth with something sweet and juicy :).

345 Joseline October 30, 2009 at 8:27 am

Kashi bars!

346 Kara October 30, 2009 at 9:19 am

Apples are my go-to snack anywhere/anytime! I also love mini PB&J or PB&Banana sandwiches. Yum!

347 karla October 31, 2009 at 8:44 am

When I go hiking, I like to take chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallows, because for me- hiking = camping and camping = smores!

348 Sara March 20, 2010 at 4:36 pm

Trail mix w/ puffins, cranraisins, and chocolate chips!
