This is what we call gorp at our house, and it goes on every cross-country trip we make between Wisconsin and Montana. The following ingredients are merely "suggestions" for what can be added.

I changed it a bit to suite my tastes, but this gave me a great base. I especially liked the figs- I wouldn't have normally picked them. Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup nuts
  • 1 cup sesame sticks
  • 1 cup M&M'
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup dried figs, snipped or 1 cup dried prune
  • 1 cup pretzel (sticks, knots, or nuggets)


  1. Dump each into a gallon zippered plastic bag.
  2. Place between driver and passenger in front seat of car.
  3. No picking out the M & M's!
  4. SUGGESTIONS FOR OTHER INGREDIENTS: dried apricots (snipped), craisins, chocolate-covered raisins, yogurt covered raisins (altho' they tend to melt more easily if the bag is left in a sunny spot in the car), dried cherries, Cheerios (honey-nut flavored).
  5. SERVING SUGGESTION: For children, pour about 1/4-1/2 cup into a small snack-size zippered baggie. This is a "neat" size for a little one to easily handle in the back-seat.
