Trader Joe's Peanut Butter Cups Trax Mix

Lately I've been on a nut kick ... so I've been giving some of the selection of nuts at Trader Joe's a try. After browsing the options ... I decided to try the Trader Joe's Peanut Butter Cups Trax Mix. It contained some of my favorite nuts ... and peanut butter cups, so how could that possibly be wrong? It seemed like a match made in snack heaven. The bag lists it as "milk chocolate peanut butter cups in a blend of fruit and nuts."
The one thing I noticed is that this trax mix is loaded with almonds. LOADED! I compared it to when you get a can of mixed nuts, with peanuts, and the container is 50% peanuts ... well this is 50% almonds.  The bag is a mixture of almonds, cashews, dried cherries and mini peanut butter cups. Due to the peanut butter cups being in it ... this is certainly not something you could keep out in a warm area as it would just become a mess.
The blend of the cashews, almonds, cherries and peanut butter cups is delightful. It cures the crunch, the salty and the sweet cravings all in one. The best part is it's a healthier snack to enjoy.
A serving, 1/4 cup (30g) is 150 calories or 4 points plus values.
