With Summer in full force, I have taken on the responsibility of making sure that our family goes out and enjoys all that Utah has to offer.  Whether it’s going on a picnic at a park, hiking a trail, visiting some salty waters, or driving to a national park, I am determined to do something outdoors and nature-y every other week or so.  This past weekend we went on a little family hike on a trail in Little Cottonwood Canyon.  Bringing bottles of water, first aid kit, diapers, wipes, and snacks were the main essentials I reached for when I knew we would be going on a hike.

For our little snack, I prepped a little trail mix that was inspired by Twizzlers.  I basically mixed all of Austin’s (our 3 year old, he’s kind of the boss around here) favorite snacks into one.  He seriously asks for snacks like it’s his J-O-B, so I knew that the snack needed to satisfy him.  For this little trail mix I made, it’s got a mix of salty and sweet, it’s bite size perfect for kid’s or adults, and it’s pretty colorful too!

I used a mix of Strawberry Twizzlers Twists and Rainbow Twizzlers Twists.  I’ve obviously grown up with the Strawberry kind, but it was my first time trying the Rainbow flavors.  I must say that I do prefer the Rainbow flavors over the Strawberry now!!

    Twizzlers are one of my greatest guilty pleasures, especially combined with popcorn – they’re my favourite movie snacks. This looks like such a fun way to take that guilty pleasure with me on the go, and I have to say, I know I won’t be able to resist trying it 🙂
