Sam's Club Sunny Day Snacks Giveaway!


With sunshine-filled days and temperatures heating up, our family loves to explore the outdoors in the summertime. Between camping, hiking and backpacking, we're always on the go during the summer months. It's always great to have some healthy energy-packed snacks along on our treks, especially snacks that you can grab on the go!


Now available at Club Stores, Nature Valley Chewy Trail Mix Bars deliver great value and are perfect to have on hand for last-minute day trips or even an afternoon in the backyard.


Not only nutritious, but convenient too, the club-sized snacks are individually wrapped and ideal for throwing in your purse or travel bag, just in case your little one's tummy starts to rumble.



  • Nature Valley Chewy Trail Mix Bars are a delightful, 100% natural combination of tastes and textures you'll love. Now, you can get 25% more of the whole almonds, peanuts, raisins, and cranberries in every bar! With no artificial flavors or colors and only 140 calories, Nature Valley Chewy Trail Mix Granola Bars also contain 8g of whole grain per serving.

Check out your local Club Store today for "stock-up packages" of this delicious snack and more!
