Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and the Wild West Theme Week.
Trail mix is wonderful to take camping, hiking, mountaineering or anywhere else lacking immediate access to a stove or other kitchen amenities. Trail mix can be a snack or a meal in a bag. Leave it up to folks in the wild west to beef up trail mix.
Today's Original Beef Trail Mix was from Oberto Sausage Company (Kent, WA). The company is probably best known for Oberto Beef Jerky (original and other flavors); so it made sense to include small pieces of their jerky in a trail mix.
The mix contained nuts (walnuts and pecans), fruit (dried cranberries, golden raisins), seeds (pumpkin, sunflower) and beef jerky; and it had 12 grams of protein, no artificial ingredients and was gluten free. Oh, and small squares of semi-sweet chocolate.
It was a well-balanced mix that wasn't too sweet or salty. Next time I'll try the Sweet and Spicy Beef with pieces of spicy dark chocolate, or the Teriyaki Chicken flavor with dark chocolate pieces. (All flavors carry a gluten free tag.)
