Walmart Cajun Trail Mix: The New Crack

l
Leper Jan 17, 2012 02:05 PM

I am not a snacker. I don't eat between meals and don't buy dip and chips. (Except during the Super Bowl.) Given that, I received a package of Walmart's Cajun Trail Mix as a stocking stuffer this Christmas and now I'm a lost soul. I might as well be on heroin. What the hell is this stuff? And what happened to me? This time next year I'll probably be in a shelter begging for coins to buy this stuff...

    This is my favorite snack!! I'm not a big snacker either but last month a visiting relative brought a large bag with her. She offered me some -- I was was very hesitant due to it being "Cajun". But I tried a handful and immediately was hooked (an understatement). This is very addictive and crazy good!! I'm doomed cause Walmart is less than 5 minutes from my house.

      Walmart's website also shows it's not available within 50 miles or at my local store, but I happened to be at Walmart today and they had it in the store. It was on the end cap of the chips/snacks aisle. I've had similar mixes, but this one has the addition of butter toffee peanuts, which makes for a nice sweet/salty combo. It contains Cajun sesame sticks, toasted corn, honey sesame sticks, almonds, peanuts and butter toffee peanuts.

        I love a good snack and this one seems right up my alley! However, when I checked online, it was coming up "no longer available". Maybe it's regional or maybe it was discontinued...if it's as good as you say, either explanation would probably be fine with my thighs.

          I don't go to Wal*Mart, so I will never know your ecstasy. Enjoy.

            Ah. Then I'll just have to go twice as often.

              Well, then you might as well try it, PK. :)

                I suspect I will, but it's just hard for me to pass up the vast array of delish pork Rhines they stock.

            I don't know if I should try this stuff or not!

              Seconded for their Indulgent Trail Mix. I'm a sick, sick lady.

                Leper, I sincerely laughed out loud when I read your post. Too, too funny. Unfortunately, I haven't yet heard of Wallyworld Trail Mix Anonymous, so you're going to have to deal with this your ownself. You can go cold turkey, or you can wean yourself off gradually. Granted, you may get the shakes, or see things that aren't really there for a day or two. You might obsess a bit; feeling as though Wal-Mart is the only safety zone you have. But it'll get better, I promise. Ride it out.

                Or, you could identify all the separate components and make a Chex Mix glaze, doubled and with the addition of a high-quality Cajun spice (Zatarains, Tony Chachere's) and have an enormous big batch for your very own.

                  Walmart itself is crack, actually.
