Honest Foods Farmer's Trail Mix Whole Food Country SquareCall me a big food nerd, but I actually use gift cards to go on a guilt free trip to Earth Fare (North and South Carolina's version of Whole Foods). I usually buy a bunch of stuff I don't need, but want to try. One of the things that caught my eye on one such recent expedition, was a Farmer's Trail Mix Whole Food Country Square, made by Honest Foods. At $2.99 a square, this is not something I would normally be able to justify! And note that Honest Foods is actually now known as Earnest Eats ... looks like they ran into some "trademark infringement" issues.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 61 grams
Calories: 240
Total Fat: 9 grams, 15%
Saturated Fat: 1 gram, 5%
Sodium: 150 mg, 6%
Carbohydrates: 35 grams
Fiber: 4 grams, 16%
Sugars: 17 grams
Protein: 6 grams

This 61 gram square is packed with dried cranberries, raisins, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, almonds and oats. You can really see all the ingredients and it just looks like it will taste good. And ... it does. The square is moist and chewy without being so chewy your jaw hurts when you're done, sweet but not too sweet, and has just the slightest hint of vanilla mixed in with the dried fruits and nuts.

With all these dried fruits and nuts, the fat count is a little on the high side at 9 grams of total fat (15% of the daily value), but only 1 gram is saturated. Each 61 gram Honest Foods Farmer's Trail Mix Whole Food Country Square also provides 240 calories, 17 grams of sugars, 16% of the daily value for fiber and 6 grams of protein.

The ingredients list for Honest Foods Farmer's Trail Mix Whole Food Country Square includes, "Organic Whole Oats, Almond Butter, Brown Rice Syrup, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Dried Cranberries, Raisins, Pumpkin Seeds, Water, Sunflower Seeds, Oat Bran, Walnuts, Rice Bran Fiber, Almond Halves, Sesame Seeds, Natural Vanilla Extract, Natural Almond Flavor, Natural Plant Gums (Guar Gum, Gum Arabic), Sea Salt."

You can still get these online at Lucky Vitamin, for $1.32 each (a little less than half what I paid). I wouldd buy a whole box of them at that price, but I must say I would definitely like it if the sugar were reduced, even knowing it would affect the taste.
