Costco Shoppers Can't Get Enough Of This Classic Kirkland Trail Mix

Everyone is talking about Costco again. This time, it's about the wholesaler's delicious classic snack: Kirkland Signature Trail Mix. Spotter Costco_doesitagain posted about the tasty mix this past week, asking fellow Costco fans, "Kirkland Trail Mix [hands up emojis] who eats all the m&ms first?! [silly face emoji] #costco #costcodoesitagain" (via Instagram). The bag in question has been around long enough to experience a few design changes, but the bulk of the matter seems to be how the trail mix can satisfy both sweet and salty cravings, combining cashews, almonds, raisins, peanuts, and chocolate M&Ms.

What savvy viewers will notice from the post is that this is absolutely an economy size bag of trail mix. That package might look cute, but the net weight is 1.81 kilograms or four pounds of snacky goodness. Neither Instagram nor the Costco website provides exact pricing for all zip codes, but a quick Google search shows you can expect to pay between $25-$35 per four-pound bag. Shares one reviewer who ordered the Kirkland trail mix online, "This mix is great. Real M&M's, fresh nuts and raisins. Grab a handful and you'll want to go for a hike on a trail" (via Amazon).

Simple ingredients, tasty snack

The ingredients for Costco's classic Kirkland Signature Trail Mix are largely as you might expect: nuts, raisins, and chocolate. Clearly anyone with a nut allergy should avoid the mix at all costs. A post on Reddit a month ago noted that the mix has also been reformulated somewhat and that there are now also peanut M&Ms, though not reflected (yet) in the packaging's art (via Eat This, Not That!).

Some might be surprised to know this snack is listed as Kosher on the Costco website (via Costco). Those with allergies should be aware, however, that the product is packaged in a facility that also contains wheat and eggs. There are about 60 quarter-cup servings per bag, which yields about 160 calories per serving.

And when it comes to eating, everyone has their own method. Says fan tahoeparis, "I set aside the M&Ms (mostly) and give them to guys in the office. I'm more about the salty nuts and sweet raisins!" while another fan, yusuphysique, shared, "All the mms are gone already lol and then the almonds!" Meanwhile, user abandhanship added, "i take out all the raisins first."

However you eat them, this Costco find seems like a pretty good deal and a longtime favorite. Sometimes classics are the best.
