Say sayonara to those processed "snack bars" that are too easy to find at the grocery store. The only problem is that they are a little bit too . . . manufactured. All those crispy bits, and the sweeteners that hold everything together in bar form. You can do better! Choose the higher ground and eat your nuts and fruits raw, as they ought to be. In this packet you'll find nothing but a berrylicious blend of both the exotic and the familiar—mulberries, goji, almonds, sunflowers, coconut, oh my!
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
Trail mix, schmail mix. Such a throwback concept, right? The original old-timey mix, then known as GORP, was nothing more than raisins and peanuts. Nothing "fancy" like M&Ms, or cashews, or yogurt-covered anything, or pretzels, or dried fruit. Nope, just simple and inexpensive. Things used to be simple and quaint, but not always Paleo-friendly either. We can do better than peanuts! Look at the bounty we have now: mulberries and goji berries and four kinds of raw nuts, oh my! None of these things existed in the world of GORP, and that makes folks like me very excited.
You'll be just as excited when you try a perfectly-portioned snack pack from GoMix. The berries deliver just enough sweetness without any need for binders or sugar, while the pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, and cashews give your teeth something to chomp about. And, oh, what's this? A little coconut in the mix, for another crunchy and slightly sweet delight.
I love this blend as a snack right out of the pack whether dealing with the hangries at work, or actually fueling something Instagrammable like a long hike out in the mountains. Either way, GoMix is giving my body the GO it needs.

Most nuts we buy are roasted, either in oil or dry, and they have a crispy crunchiness, for sure. However, they have lost some of their amazing nutrition along the way. Raw foods have been harvested and gently dried, never cooking out their benefits.
When you eat raw foods, and raw nuts specifically, you're eating something about as natural as it can get.
The GoMix story
"The journey of GoMix began when Matt Forkas was unable to find a truly healthy and delicious on-the-go snack.
To do this, we started looking for a healthy, unprocessed, on-the-go snack in stores, and much to our surprise we found nothing in sight. So, we took it upon ourselves to source premium raw ingredients and mix them together for a super snack.
After countless trials we finally mixed together the absolute best combination of ingredients to share with everyone. We believe if we provide GoMix to elders, adults, and children we can help them realize how a healthy diet will ultimately lead to a healthier (and happier!) life."
Here are the details on those super berries in GoMix's Original Trail Mix:
Super berries: Goji, Mulberry
Goji, a Himalayan berry, has inspired a surge of interest for its use in treating diabetes, hypertension, malaria, fever, cancer and other ailments. Gram for gram, goji berries pack more vitamin C than some oranges and more beta-carotene than carrots. Over time, people have used goji berries to try and treat many common health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, fever, and age-related eye problems. Goji berries are eaten raw, cooked, or dried (like raisins) and are used in herbal teas, juices, wines, and medicines.
Mulberries have significantly high amounts of phenolic flavonoid phytochemicals called anthocyanins. Further, the berries also contain small amounts of vitamin A, and vitamin E, in addition to the above-mentioned antioxidants. Consumption of mulberry provides another group of health promoting flavonoid polyphenolic antioxidants such as lutein, zea-xanthin, ß-carotene and α-carotene in small but notably significant amounts.

About GoMix, in their own words
GoMix strives to provide people with a snack food that is nutritious and completely natural. We hope to change the way people look at the food they consume while influencing a positive perception on healthy eating with real whole foods.
We started our mission in early 2017 to change the way people snack. We seek to introduce a healthy, raw, and delicious trail mix.
With an interest in conscious eating, our founder Matt Forkas (a cancer survivor) tuned his diet to enjoy a healthier lifestyle. He swapped processed and unhealthy foods for low sugar organic foods. With this, he saw a dramatic positive increase in the way his body reacted to these foods.
We would like to share this good feeling with everyone.
