Why is Trail-Mix so Appealing (and Healthy) for Your Customers?

Trail mix, any combination of nuts, seeds, and dried fruit, is a great option for people on the go. It’s lightweight, portable, and easy to make. Plus, it’s nutritious! Loaded with protein and fiber, it’ll keep customers full for long periods of time. Here are some more reasons why trail mix is appealing and healthy.

Sweet, salty, crunchy

A handful of trail mix satisfies all appetites. You have the crunchy saltiness of nuts and seeds, followed by the sweetness of the raisins, cranberries, apricots, or whatever dried fruit you’ve selected. It’s simple, and because it has such a long shelf life, it’s a great option to store in a car, backpack, or desk drawer for a quick morsel when time permits.

Flavored nostalgia

Everyone loves trail mix! Whether it’s the good old raisins and peanuts you carried on a hike as a kid or something more exotic, laced with dried pineapples, coconut flakes, and macadamia nuts, there’s enough variety to appeal to all flavor pallets.


Trail mix keeps blood sugar levels constant, staving off the roller coaster effect of drastic swings in both energy and mood. So noshing on trail mix will make you pleasant to be around and keep you from grabbing that stale, leftover cake from yesterday’s office birthday celebration late in the afternoon. Instead you’ve powered your busy body with usable calories to keep you energized until your next meal.

The dried fruits in trail mixes are a great way to squeeze in those 8 to 10 daily servings of fruits and vegetables, not to mention a great source of fiber, yielding good colon health. Raisins in particular are loaded with antioxidants that slow the aging process in the body and brain.

Nuts are healthy!

Growing numbers of customers yearn for snacks between meals while still being mindful of a healthy, nutritious diet, and trail mix is the perfect answer. Nuts, whether we’re talking peanuts, almonds, pecans, or walnuts are great sources of healthy fats—polyunsaturated and monounsaturated—which are responsible for supporting a healthy heart. In fact, adults who regularly eat nuts are actually leaner than those who don’t. Not only will nuts also provide fiber, protein, and other vitamins and minerals, but the oils they contain give them a longer shelf life, making them a good choice for customers when they’re looking for something to store in their cars, in a desk drawer or carry along on a hike.
