This Old Bay Trail Mix is an easy and flavorful take on the classic!

With the official start of football season around the corner, it’s time to tailgate! In celebration, I’ve joined a group of bloggers from all over the country to bring you 64 tailgating recipe ideas for a tailgate everyone will be jealous of! This Old Bay Trail Mix is definitely something to be jealous of! 

Growing up, I was a Navy brat and moved around to 5 different states and Puerto Rico. I never really stuck around one place long enough to commit to a football team. For the past 15 years, I’ve been living in Maryland so the Baltimore Ravens are the closest thing to my team. (Sorry Redskins fans ???)

With that being said, living in Maryland for so long has grown my love of Old Bay like you wouldn’t believe. I had never heard of it before moving here and now can fully appreciate the flavor on just about anything.

Old Bay popcorn? Yum. Crabcakes with Old Bay? Obviously. Beer brewed with Old Bay? Bring it on!

Let me just say that this post isn’t sponsored by Old Bay. I just love it that much. Pair it with trail mix and you have the perfect tailgating food. Nice and salty to go with the cold beer. Bonus points for not needing to store it in a cooler!
