Golden trail mix


I paid $35 for trail mix this weekend. I’m still in shock.

It happened like this: Hannaford has this new area of natural products that you can buy bulk. I started scooping, but the bag never seemed that full. Not as full as the pre-packaged one.

About 6 pounds later…at about $6/lb…

I saw it hit at the cash register. I was in schock. (That’s like shock with an ‘oy’!)

Too dumfounded to realize I probably didn’t have to buy it.

We ate great trail mix all weekend. And we certainly didn’t run out!
