National Trail Mix Day

On August 31, National Trail Mix Day is an annual event that is observed annually. The mix was created as a healthy snack that could be carried on hikes.

Some believe the trail mix was invented in 1968 by two California surfers who mixed peanuts and raisins together for an energy snack. However, when the two main characters describe the planned meals in preparation for their hiking trip, it is mentioned in Jack Kerouac's book The Dharma Bums, written by Jack Kerouac's, the planned meals were described.

The Trail mix is also known as "Gorp" in some cases.
