It varies all the time and I never buy a store concoction. Just buy the bulk nuts and dried fruits and cut up into pieces for the mix. The staples of the mix are always peanuts and raisins, about 2:1. Then I add the seasonings: chocolate chips, walnuts, almonds, cashews, dried fruits, etc. FYI, nuts keep much better in the freezer. I always buy the raw nuts, not the roasted, double bag them and store them in the freezer. I usually make up about a litre or 2 of trail mix with varying proportions of the above and then keep it in the fridge and just take out what I want for a given excursion. When it's all gone, I make a new, entirely different batch. I love the variety and the surprise effects of trying out new things.
