    @Danielle – I am the same way. Whatever I have left over in the pantry I toss into my GORP. I haven’t tried toffee nuts yet, but that sounds good! I’ve mixed almonds, cranberries, chocolate chips, and even dried edamame into my GORP!

  2. Danielle says:

    Homemade GORP: Honey nut Cherrios, Toffee nuts, & cranberries (though I’ll admit – it’s different every time. It kinda depends on what I’m in the mood for while shopping and what’s in the house!

  3. Cathy says:

    Smoked almonds. Crunchy, smoky, salty, yum! Washed down with the “yellow flavored” Gatorade, ha. I have no idea what it’s really supposed to be.

  4. Elise says:

    I like a nut mixture that includes almonds, cashews, peanuts, macadamia nuts (if they are affordable), raisins, dried cranberries, dried cherries (if they are affordable) and candied ginger.

  5. Carol says:

    Love GORP, beef jerky, granola bars, chunk cheese for a treat! I’ve added the dark choc chips to GORP as well as dried cranberries, yummy!

  6. Hiking Lady says:

    I like your additions, Janet! I’ve added milk chocolate chips before. I’ve learned my lesson to not try that when it is too hot out. ๐Ÿ™‚
