National Trail Mix Day is a day to eat this fun and healthy snack. Almost everybody loves trail mix, and it is good to know that August 31 is observed as National Trail Mix Day. It has been designated as a day to honor the healthy snack. The combination of nuts, dried fruits, granola, and pieces of chocolate is popular with kids and adults.
You ask WHY IS IT CALLED TRAIL MIX? I have asked myself that lots of times. When my kids were younger they would ask me that questions several times. Is it because you eat it on a trail, my kids would ask? I would tell them yes! It's an easy snack to eat while hiking, The mixture consists of items that are lightweight and convenient to carry without taking up too much space in a backpack. It is usually put in a plastic bag. It is easy to eat without having to use utensils. Nothing is included that will spoil because the mixture has a long shelf life. It is fresh and ready to eat at any time. Nothing needs to be refrigerated. Nothing needs to be heated before it is eaten. The mixture is not only convenient, but it is a nutritious snack to give people energy while they are hiking on a trail. When people grab a handful of the snack, they are grabbing something that is not only good but good for them.
