Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Cashew Theme Week.

Today I sampled a handful of organic, gluten-free and kosher Mango Staycation Trail Mix + dark chocolate, from Peeled Inc. (Brooklyn, NY).

Loved the title -- Mango Staycation. Curl up on the coach, and let your trail mix transport you, or go out on a hike or an adventure. Either way, you're covered.

This trail mix consisted of chewy pieces of dried fruit (banana, raisins and mango), heart-healthy nuts (organic, dry roasted salted peanuts, organic cashews, organic dry roasted salted almonds), and dark chocolate chips.

This all-in-the-family mix (mangoes and cashews are in the same family (Anacardiaceae), tasted fairly light, and authentically fruity without being too sweet. The nuts balanced the fruit with some crunchy texture, protein, and a faint hint of salt.

The chocolate chips were an accent flavor, and not the main dish; but the mix was balanced and satisfying.
