In our continued efforts avoid eating out, and to eat healthily Jordan asked me to pick up something that was crunchy, but not chips.
We've had some good luck with a few different types of trail mix from Costco, so I thought I would try my hand at making one from the bulk section at the grocery store. I got a bit excited, and I think next time I could do better by watching for sales (though I did get some one sale).
I spent a total of $17.52 for 1.115kg total mix on:
- Dried Apple Rings - $1.90 ($12.90/kg - on sale from $19.90/kg)
- Dried Pineapple - $5.47 ($19.90/kg)
- Dried Cranberries - $5.77 ($19.90/kg)
- Mixed Nuts with Dried Banana Chips - $4.47 ($10.90/kg - on sale from $11.90/kg)
From the size of the bag compared to the bag from Costco which was around $15 - I feel okay about the mix but I'm going to start keeping on eye on the bulk section though, and try to pick up a few things as they go on sale, so that our next mix can cost even less.
