Why these amazing trail mixes by Gorilly Goods are so good for you

If it were not for the amazing taste, then you'd have to fall back on Gorilly Good's nutrition. Their ethical sourcing. Their commitment to organic and non-gmo ingredients. But also, it's the wonderful flavors and the combination of nuts, spices, and gentle processing that makes each bag of mix a true delight.

The Trail Mix with Goji & Cacao is both a traditional trail mix as well as innovative and exciting. The tradition comes from ingredients like raisins and nuts and everything you'd expect from plain-old mix. But then, things get better. Every single ingredient is organic. Every single nut is carefully chosen for maximum nutrition. And everything is prepared at low temperature, giving the recipe the coveted raw qualification with ease and great flavor.

In each perfectly portioned bag you'll find cashews, pecans, and almonds to start the nuttiness. And then there's raisins. Yummy, fat, organic raisins. But it still wouldn't be a new take on trail mix if there weren't new fruits to contend with: goji berries and pineapple. Yes, zesty pineapple that works well with the coconut and crunchy punchy cacao. You're happy, and no longer hungry.

Here's what they say about what goes into their mixes: "It all started with the desire to bring healthy, tasty snacks that we could enjoy on the trails, hillsides, and coasts that call to us. After expanding on our original variety, we continued to create new additions to our snack line, always inspired by nature’s nutrition and using the most delicious plant-based ingredients, herbs and spices. Always exploring, always inspired."
