The supermarket industry is seeing a resurgence of bulk products due to customers’ desire for a more personalized shopping experience. With the success of bulk sections, stores are starting to test personalized experiences like mix & match trail mix bars. Customers love the opportunity to build their own trail mix and it’s a showcase piece for the store. Trail mix bars can also be a great fit for other industries like healthcare, hospitality, business and more.
Although most of the fun is having lots of different product options for customers to choose from, there are some basics that make for a successful mix & match trail mix bar. The foundation of a good trail mix starts with nuts and seeds that provide quality fats and healthy plant protein. Adding items like dried fruit, sweets and snacks, can add taste, texture, energy and nutrition. Some of our most successful products for trail mix bars include:
Buffalo Nuts – buffalo flavored peanuts
Dark Chocolate Chunks
Mini Chocolate Pretzels
Pumpkin Seeds R/S
