I recently received a couple complimentary packages of trail mix from Enjoy Life Natural Brands to sample and review on my blog. I am always looking for healthy, safe snacks to stick in the boys’ lunch boxes and these sounded like it they would fit the bill perfectly. While my kids are not allergic to peanuts or tree nuts, I always try to be mindful of other allergies at Sam’s school and Luke goes to a peanut-free school. The Enjoy Life Trail Mixes are free of gluten and the top 8 allergens, plus they are made without casein, potato, sesame and sulfites! This is one of the many aspects that I love about Enjoy Life products; they fully disclose the ingredients they use, where they process their products and they TEST their products to be sure strict allergen control standards are met. I never have to second guess giving Sam one of their foods.
There are two flavors of Trail Mix: Not Nuts! Beach Bash and Not Nuts! Mountain Mambo.
The Not Nuts! Beach Bash contain: Raw Sunflower Kernels, Pineapple, Roasted Hulled Pumpkin Seeds (Sunflower Oil (Sunflower Oil, Citric Acid), Salt), Cranberries, Apricots
The No Nuts! Mambo Mountain contain: Raw Sunflower Kernels, Roasted Hulled Pumpkin Seeds (Sunflower Oil (Sunflower Oil, Citric Acid), Salt), Raisins, Dried Apples, Chocolate Chips (Evaporated Cane Juice, Chocolate Liquor, Non-Dairy Cocoa Butter), Cranberries
I wish I could tell you what I personally think of the taste, but I have been without my sense of taste for a couple of weeks now due to a relentless summer sinus infection. I can tell you that I really like the texture though!
My husband loved the pineapple in the Beach Bash. So much so, he took the entire bag to work with him. The boys favored the Mambo Mountain due to the mini chocolate chips (surprise). I plan on making the Chocolate Bark recipe as soon as I am up to it. I also think these would be a great add-in for gluten-free granola bars!
