I now also take a few dark chocolate covered almonds.
Ever try some Italian Chocolate Covered Hazelnuts WD? :yummy:

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Honey roasted peanuts.

None. The last couple of years, they've given me acid indigestion, so it's off the nuts or on the antacids. I'll go with the former for awhile and see how it goes.
If you don't want to be eaten, don't look like food.

My favorites are peanuts. But I love all nuts! My roommates back in college would make fun of me regularly since I'd be munching on nuts hah. I buy the Tempting Trail Mix from Trader Joes. Yes, it's more expensive but it comes in prepackages 1.5 oz bags that are great for my daily trail mix intake. Peanuts, cashews (which are a close second), almonds (3rd favorite), chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and craisins. My absolute favorite trail mix for years!
Never put off a backpacking trip for tomorrow, if you can do it today...

Roasted, salted peanuts. However I have found that peanuts are social animals, and start to act up if carried all by themselves. So I add some M&M's, and that seems to make the peanuts much happier.

Dry roasted almonds from Trader Joes and pumpkin seeds are my go-to.

Gotta say, though, one time I brought back some chocolate covered pineapple chunks from a Dole store in Hawaii. That was the most delicious munchie I ever had on the trail.

Nuts/seeds are the main source of food when I backpack. Many calories per gram and they pack tight. Other nuts/seeds: pine nuts, sunflower seeds, pepitas, sacha inchi, hickory (not much), coconut chips. Most unsalted (and not sugar coated), but some salted. Mostly roasted, but not always. Not mixed - each in a separate ziplock bag. Chocolate covered? Rarely (almonds). Also chocolate peanut cups. Actually, a lot of chocolate.
Does anyone like those spiced Garbanzo Beans too?
Yes, spicy chickpeas too. Also wasabe peas.
-- Found trash? Please pack it out. Thank you.
