ed's trail mix

Traditional trail mix, be gone! Well... maybe not forever because I LOVE traditional trail mix- peanuts, raisins, chocolate candy pieces and pretzels... so good! But, I wanted to switch it up and make enough to last a decent way into football season. Oh, did I mention that it's football season? I've lost my fiance for at least the next 6 months. And then it will be baseball season again.
I think this may be the perfect combination- chocolate covered raisins provide the sweet and chocolate. Swedish fish come in for the chew and fruit. Bugles are salty and crispy almost like a potato chip. Teddy grahams are sweet and cookie-ish. Goldfish are cheesy and crunchy. Finally, the Gardetto's mix (basically a zesty Chex mix) is savory and twangy.
Glorious, glorious trail mix. This seriously make a bunch of trail mix...
Yea. It made about 2 gallon sized resealable bags worth of trail mix. This should last a while.
