Spinach or Spring Mix?

This is more of an opinion question. I eat salads daily for lunch.

Which is better to use, 100% baby spinach, or the Spring Mixes?
The rule of thumb is to use the darkest greens, but since the mix has a lot of spinach anyway, would it yield a better nutritional value?

Wegmans Spring Mix: Baby Lettuces (Lollo Rossa, Tango, Red and Green Oak, Red and Green Romaine, Red Leaf, Parella), Baby Greens (Tatsol, Mizuna, Red and Green Chard, Red and Green Mustard, Frisee), Baby Spinach, Radicchio.

I personally prefer 100 % baby organic spinach. I find the spring mixes a bit bitter.

I'm not sure what is better nutritionally, as you said, the darkest leafy greens are supposed to be the healthiest. Spinach is also packed full of iron.
I've had both, but eat the spinach on a reg. basis, as well as include it in smoothies.
