Our standard list is includes:

Honey Stinger Bars or Power Bars
Cashews or Peanuts
Chocolate (bars or raisins)
Water and Gatorade
On our winter trips we take the JetBoil for coffee, hot chocolate and cup of noodles to warm up.
We've taken dinner leftovers a few times: cold pizza and a cold burrito :p (didn't appeal to me too much).
We always manage to take plenty along and bring something back. Don't want to get bonked on the trail at the end of the day.
We are pretty basic in our food stuffs-
Peanut butter and cheese crackers
Small containers of pineapple and peaches in natural juices
Trail mix with dried fruit and chocolate
Water and Gatorade G2
Separate container of water for Nigel
Nigel's dog treats
There is a lot of good information in this thread, Thanks!!
Always have Snickers Bars!!! Great source of Fat, Protein and Sugar....and a great reward for making the summit (or for not dying along the trail).
