I picked the Happy Belly Yogurt Trail Mix for this review.
Happy Belly Snacks are exclusively available to Amazon Prime members. You can get them in a Prime Pantry box, on Subscribe & Save, and as a single purchase. I’ve also noticed some of the goodies at a deep discount with Alexa (to order with your Echo).
If you’re not a Prime member you can get a free trial here, and then check out more of the Amazon Prime exclusive goodies, like the Amazon Prime Sample Boxes! You may have already guessed that I’m Prime-obsessed, and if it doesn’t come from a box in my house – it probably comes from Amazon.
The Happy Belly Yogurt Trail Mix is currently $18.49 for a 44 oz bag, or 14.79 for 2 16 oz bags.
This mix of peanuts, yogurt chips, raisins, dried cranberries, almonds, cashews, and dates was dated with an expiry date of 5/10/17 – I ordered it in mid February. Do note that unlike Graze, the “yogurt” drops in Amazon goodies use high fructose corn syrup. My personal feeling is that this is a big drawback. There’s quite a lot of them, which yogurt chip fans will love, but I’m not a fan of hydrogenated oils.
Happy Belly Yogurt Trail Mix goes beyond the basic blend. We start with shelled peanuts, almonds, and cashew pieces, and then add sweet, dried cranberries, chewy black raisins, and chopped dates. Yogurt chips and sea salt finish this chewy, crunchy, salty, and sweet blend.
The mix contains a variety of nuts, dried fruits, and is topped off with a generous amount of yogurt chips and sea salt. I took a shot into the bag so you could see what I see – a few cashew pieces, but not a lot.
Even by weight, I was kind of left doubting that there were really more cashews than dates (they appear before the dates on the ingredients list). The almonds were the nice quality that we saw in the other Happy Belly mixes we previously reviewed (if you’re wondering we ate the other trail mix already!), but the cranberries clearly were not. The cranberries were pieces, drier, and not as moist or attractive.
My husband was a fan of this mix because he loves dates and “white” sweets (in this case, just fat & sugar with no flavor). Not having the whole cashews in this mix felt like a definite downgrade. To be sure, there are lots of raves on Amazon about this mix, but I personally prefer the chocolate & dried fruit mix. It’s now available for Subscribe & Save, which is
great terrible, because I’ll have to subscribe, because it was a definite hit.
Happy Belly also has a range of just nuts available, and they’re starting to add herbs & spices, in addition to coffee. Frankly, I think it’s a little odd to have these all under the same umbrella – I haven’t quite figured out the Amazon master plan yet, but I’m loving the new choices.
