I like a good mixture of raisins, sunflower seeds (hulled), coconut flakes, banana chips, and almonds. Dark chocolate chips are optional.

  I think we need to take a bag of OP's Gorp and dump it into Rog;s bag of mix and give it a good shake.

Word of caution...don't put anything you want to stay crisp in with raisins, or any moist fruit. I love sesame crisps, but they die a horrible death in a bag with raisins.

Here ya go Moe...   May as well throw in some raisins and peanuts......:)


Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Cheerios
Prep Time: 5
Total Time: 20
Ingredients:

Peanut butter Cheerios
Chocolate chips or a chocolate bar

The proportions will vary depending on how many chocolate covered Cheerios you want. I melted a few squares of chocolate for approx. 1 Cup of Cheerios. I suggest melting the chocolate and dipping Cheerios until you run out of chocolate! HA! :)

Directions:
Melt chocolate chips or a chocolate bar.

Dip each Cheerio one at a time or multiple Cherrios for making clusters.

Place on parchment or wax paper or a Silpat mat.

Chill until set, approx. 15 min.

You need a product label on that.

"Suitable for temperatures below 32oF. Do not carry in an inside pocket. Melts on your hands, not in your mouth." Hahaha!
Why do I have this vision of Moe sitting at the table with a pair of tweezers, dipping one Cheerio at a time...x500?!

Pretty much, given time. The crisp stuff gets soft, the soft stuff dries out.

  Afraid not,  I'd be willing to give them a try out of the box in a bowl of milk,  other than that I take a bag of those Reese's pieces please.
  And those M&M's with peanut butter,  they're bad,  the wife won't let me buy them any more,  I have zero willpower when it comes to those little devils,  a couple of weeks ago CVS had a buy one get one free sale on candy,  hey that's a good deal,  two large bags for seven bucks,  the damned thing didn't last the week,  and my sugar numbers went through the roof.

These all sound good.  On recent trips I have been lazy and just took along packages of mixed dried fruit and M & M's.  My snacks always seem to migrate to the bottom of my haversack, so durable resealable packages are preferred.  M&M's and lint make a bad mixture.

I once subsisted on 2 pounds of Gorp, and coffee for an entire weekend. But I have to say that Burger King was sure a welcome sight when I got back into town! Hahaha!

I remember  the first time I went  on  a  rather long hike when my family came to  pick me up  the subways they brought never tasted so  good, even though had some stuff I  don't like much LOL :D but yeah most fast food  is usually a welcome site
