I have recently developed a liking for trail mix. There is one thing I don’t understand though. Why do so many people make their own? I have a number of friends who make their own trail mix and I’m wondering if I should make my own or just buy the premade stuff.
Wouldn’t it be significantly cheaper to buy it premade? I feel like it would cost a bundle to buy all the types of nuts needed. Nuts are not cheap where I live. But maybe I’m missing something.

It’s cheaper to buy nuts in bulk, and making your own gives you control over what goes into the mix.

Nine times out of ten, it’s cheaper to make it yourself. Just like it’s cheaper to prepare and cook your own food.

I make it myself. I find it’s cheaper- also, there are some things in store bought trail mix I don’t care for, so this way I can customize it. My SO also likes different things than me, so this way we can each kind of make our own mixes.

I go to the local bulk food store (Bulk Barn). That way I can choose what to put in and I don’t end up picking out the things I don’t like. I put in cashews, sunflower seeds, honey roasted peanuts, banana chips, craisins, and M&Ms. It is much cheaper, and much tastier.
