August 31 is National Trail Mix Day
Sunday, August 31st
12:00 AM
Whole Foods Market San Mateo,

You can take this snack on the run, baby - August 31 is National Trail Mix Day.

Even if you're not setting off on a grand adventure today, trail mix is still a great snack to munch on wherever you go - but it gets even better if you're plunging into a hike.
 
This lightweight snack is packed with powerful carbohydrates and energy, depending on your blend. Grab some granola, dried fruit, nuts and chocolate bits, shake it up and snack it down.

Trail mix has been around a while, but the first literary mention is in Jack Kerouac's "The Dharma Bums," published in 1958. The snack previously flew under the radar and under different names.  The name for trail mix in Germany, Denmark, Poland and Lithuania roughly translates to "student feed."

After all, when Ramen noodles won't do, grab a handful of "student feed" to see you through.

Interesting Food Facts about Grilled Cheese
Grilled cheese sandwiches originally showed up in America during the roaring 20’s.  It is said that grilled cheese was first served as an open-face sandwich.  A grilled cheese sandwich is often accompanied by tomato soup, a southern delicacy!  Grilled cheese sandwiches can be served with bacon , tomato, and various other additions.  It makes the meal much more filling.
 
Fun Fact:
Today’s notion of the grilled cheese is commonly traced back to the 1920s, when the Iowa man considered “the father of sliced bread” invented a bread slicer that made distributing white bread easy and affordable.
 
In 2004, the online casino GoldenPalace.com paid $28,000 for a half-eaten grilled cheese with the likeness of the Virgin Mary depicted in the “burn” pattern.
