CUB GRUB - Fun Food

GORP Trail Mix

Addendum – CS Program Helps

GORP is an acronym for “Good Old Raisins and Peanuts”

Mix any or all of the following together in proportions that you desire – dried banana chips, dried apricots, dried apple chips, sunflower seeds, pretzels, cereal squares, round breakfast cereal, chocolate chips, sugar-coated chocolate and / or peanut candies (e.g. M&M’s), cashews and walnuts.

Then have boys place the GORP into resealable plastic bags to carry for a snack they can eat while hiking.

Be sure to check for possible nut and peanut allergies before mixing your GORP together.

Making GORP is recommended as a Wolf Den activity in Cub Scout Program Helps but the recipe is not there.
