Trail mix is like the catch-all, use-all snack for pretty much any occasion. Whether we were camping or at a soccer game or during a holiday party, trail mix was always present. Everyone always had a handful and sometimes by the end of the night you were afraid to have a handful because everyone had already had one. But Trail Mix was always there to share the events, no matter how you make it. So for National Trail Mix Day I wanted to share a few out of the box recipes to try. #NationalTrailMixDay

Mango and Curry make all the sense to me. A little bit of sweet, a little bit of spicy and a whole lot of character.

This could become addicting very quickly. Between the heat from the wasabi almonds and the sweetness from the honey, this could be our next obsession.

Why this was not something I ventured to try before, I have no answer. But chocolate and cherries are like a match made in snack heaven.
