Scroggin

Scroggin is a nickname for a mixture of nuts and dried fruit, (and sometimes chocolate) usually carried by bushwalkers. It has been suggested that the name scroggin is an acronym, taken from the first letter of eight ingredients:

However, this could be a backronym, and the assumption that "scroggin" is an actual acronym may be a folk etymology (as is likely the case with gorp).

These ingredients can be anything desired, but traditionally they must have chocolate, raisins, and nuts. Dried fruit, such as dried apricots, dried apples and banana chips, plus sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds are very popular inclusions in these mixes.

The idea behind Scroggin is to have an energy-packed mix of anything you want, kept in a waterproof bag which the consumer dips into when in need of an energy boost.

Also, colloquially, a small marsupial.
