Product Review – Bear Naked Organic Trail Mix

Bear Naked Organic Trail Mix is named “Bear Naked”, due to the fact the ingredients are all organic, don’t contain any trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, refined sugars, or cholesterol.

I recently purchased the Bear Naked “high sierra blend” organic trail mix. It contains cashews, walnuts, almonds, cranberries, raisins, pumpkin seeds and dark chocolate chips.

The blend of ingredients makes for a perfect match of flavors.

One quarter cup of the Bear Naked Trail Mix (high sierra blend), contains 140 calories. Eighty of the calories are from fat. There are no trans fats or sodium in the high sierra blend. Each quarter cup contains 3 grams of protein, and 2 grams of fiber.

I first heard about the Bear Naked brand while watching “The Big Idea”, with Donny Deutsch. He was showcasing new businesses, and interviewed Brendan and Kelly (the individuals behind the Bear Naked brand). Theirs is another great story of how a simple idea, has brought them fame and notoriety. (See…. for links to other great stories, of individuals who are on the road, to make millions with their ideas.)

If you’re looking for an organic trail mix that doesn’t contain any trans fats, sodium, or preservatives, Bear Naked Organic Trail Mix, is a great choice.

Our local Costco carries the 26 oz. bag of Bear Naked Organic Trail Mix, however, you may also be able to find this product at your local health food store.

    In 2007 Bear Naked was bought by Kellogs. Now how organic is it? I would say probably not at all. Since Kellogs is a big user of Genetically Modified ingredients in ALL of their cereals I would say that I DO NOT trust this product for anything. Also you might want to take a look at the ingredients again. Any acorbic acid, citric acid, citrus acid, lactate acid, or any added vitamins? If so these and of course any soy are all genetically modified and they make you fat and give you heart disease, acid reflux and of course eventually some wicked cancer. I wouldn’t touch Bear Naked with a 10 foot pole and unless it was to shove it in an incinerator.

    Hi Lisa,

    In a way, that is sad to hear, as I like to see those “mom & pop” businesses become successful.

    It has been a great product. But, since I am a big ingredient reader, I will definitely check to see how organic it remains.

    Thanks for informing me of the buy-out…apparently that took place in November ’07

    The next product in line as far as a mom and pop granola available in all 50 states is one called Udi’s Granola. There are 3 ingredients. Canola Oil, Honey, and Oats. other ingredients include dried cranberry, and walnuts. They are so basic, and delicious. Their products are still all handmade, and owned by a family from Denver. I love their Cranberr, and their original flavor has banana chips pistachios and raisins. Thats what i would suggest if your not into a multi billion dollar corp manufacturing what you hope is a “wholesome” granola.
