HG's It's Trail Mix, Baby!

Hail Trail!

Okay, we've really outdone ourselves here.  If you can get past the unconventional ingredients (what can we say; babies know good snack food!), you'll find that It's Trail Mix, Baby! is a triumph in low-cal, low-fat snacking.  Chock-full of fruits, "nuts", and sweet crunch, this is one trail mix that can be enjoyed guilt-free (we even managed to sneak some chocolate in)!  It's a groovy, go-anywhere snack that'll fill you up while satisfying your cravings for all things sweet, salty, and fruity-licious!  You'll go (goo-goo) gaga for this stuff!

2 cups popped 94% fat-free kettle corn popcorn

1 cup Gerber Finger Foods Veggie Puffs; Corn

Trail & Error

How did trail mix ever earn its deceptive reputation of being good-for-you?  Sure, nuts and dried fruit are full of nutrients and good fats, but a tiny handful of the stuff weighs in at close to 200 calories and 11 grams of fat!  And come on, who can put the bag down after just a handful?  Also called gorp (we have no idea why), this high-energy snack was originally eaten by hikers, travelers, and athletes.  But with the addition of yummy ingredients like chocolate chips and even the occasional m & m, snackers everywhere embraced it.  Avoid this disastrous diet blunder by swapping it with our It's Trail Mix, Baby!
