After coming off the Bibbulmun Track and eating the same scroggin (trail mix) for 53 days straight, we were generally pretty happy with the basic recipe: Nuts / Dried Fruit / Seeds (no lollies or chocolate).
When we started training for the Great North Walk we wanted to refine the recipe so started rating the various incarnations… that walk didn't eventuate, but when we started again for the Kosciuszko Hut Tour, we started our rating again; and in due course, quite surprisingly, we started rating the scroggin at 98%!
So, we seem to have arrived at what we think is The Best Scroggin in the World
…well, at least the best for us
The following table has the various incarnations (by date and walk in columns), with Sandi's and my ratings in the last rows.
I've just made up nearly 2 kg of the stuff, and put it into our little morning tea bags that hold 100 gm each.
Here is its creation, it'll be interesting to see how it performs over an extended period out on the track…

I would be interested to see the rating broken down a little (probably too late now)
1. Perceived energy level
2. Actual energy level (as measured by walking pace/track difficulty)
4. Half life (how long it took until you started feeling hungry again)

Yep, I’d like to do that too… these ratings were just taste (i.e. your #3).
We think that day temperature has a big impact too.
