How to Make Gorp aka Trail Mix aka Monkey Food


  1. Mix all together and place in clear container. Dollar General sells "Cheddar Whales", almost as good as the "Fish". This mix is a nice blend of Sweet and Salty -- Crunchy and Chewy (Raisins)
  2. Hide the container!
  3. You could add shelled Sunflower seeds or shelled Pumpkin seeds also. Or Craisons (Semi-dried Cranberries) for extra color and chew. Or get Creative.
