Nutri-Grain is breaking from its breakfast heritage and into a savoury snack range as it introduces its Nuts & Bolts trail mix range to supermarkets and convenience stores.

Available in three varieties – Original Spice, Smokey BBQ, and Sweet Chilli – the new range is inspired by the original Kellogg's Nuts & Bolts recipe, and mixes Nutri-Grain with peanuts, spices and diced almonds.

“The original Nuts & Bolts recipe is a retro favourite and crowd-pleaser. There’s such a lovely touch of nostalgia when we think about the snacks we had while growing up, and we know many people still love making the recipe,” said marketing and corporate affairs director Tamara Howe.

“Trail mixes are continuing to grow in popularity, so combining the delicious crunch of Nutri-Grain with nuts and spices is a winning formula for Nutri-Grain’s first savoury snack.”

Nutri-Grain Nuts & Bolts Trail Mix is available at grocery stores (120g share bags / RRP $4.00) will soon be available to petrol and convenience stores as 40g single-serve packs with RRP $3.00.
