Trail mix is one of the simplest yet delicious, on-the-go treats! It’s sweet, salty, and never fails to satisfy. The only thing that rivals it are these healthy Trail Mix Bites! It doesn’t get better than tiny treats. Just think of all the delicious flavors trail mix has to offer rolled into one fun, bite-sized, afternoon snack! Yep, trail mix just got an update.

Each bite provides you with tons of delicious ingredients, such as nuts, seeds, and – of course – chocolate! You didn’t think we would forget that tasty ingredient, did you?

The fiber from the nuts and chia seeds will keep you full while the chocolate is every dessert lover’s dream. Plus, each bite contains Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, which helps to promote stronger hair, skin, nails, and joints! Our Collagen Peptides are versatile and can be used in any sweet or savory recipe. Why, you ask? Not only are they odorless and flavorless, but they are also easily soluble in hot and cold liquids and foods.
