Tag Archives: good old raisins and peanuts


Gorp is a popular term for trail mix. I was brought up thinking that it stood for Good Old Raisins and Peanuts, but I’ve also heard that it stands for Granola, Oats, Raisins and Peanuts. No matter what you call it, it’s still the generic name for trail mix. Gorp is made to give you protein and energy while you’re hiking or camping, but it’s also popular as an everyday healthy snack. There are many variations of trail mix with all kinds of different ingredients like almonds, M&Ms, sunflower seed kernels, cashews, walnuts, and various types of dried fruit. You can eat gorp when you’re sitting on your ass watching TV at home, but it tastes best when you’re outside doing something. Food is fuel and gorp is gasoline. I don’t know if that makes sense, but I like how it sounds. It really does taste better than gasoline, I was being metaphorical.
