I Love...Trail Mix!

I really do!

Soon after Little Leighton was born, I became hooked on the "Monster Trail Mix" from Target. Middle of the night feedings and diaper changes? All made easier by the little ramekin on my nightstand that I had pre-filled before bed with "Monster Trail Mix."

Then Target changed the ingredients in the "Monster Trail Mix." It went from having dried cherries to raisins only. I was bummed. They also added extra peanut butter chips and it was just too much. (My Husband is the one obsessed with peanut butter. He puts peanut butter on Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I kid you not.)

Then, I discovered Target's "Simply Trail Mix" now had the cherries and M&M's and raisins and almonds and peanuts. My life was complete, once again!

Last week, on a Target run while LL was at school, I headed for my Trail Mix aisle to grab my "usual," when I saw this:


Y'all. This is good. I mean, really good. It has dried cranberries, GOLDEN raisins (fancy!), almonds, sunflower seeds and pepitas (pumpkin seeds). It is tart and sweet and salty, and I am a FAN. So is My Husband. I caught him with the bag earlier, just munching away. Apparently I'm going to have to get us each a bag next time and properly label them with our names because I do not want to share. It's the perfect afternoon snack to give you the little boost of protein and energy you need to get you to dinner.

Give it a whirl!

P.S. And have a happy Monday while you're at it, too!
