I actually heard a couple of folks use the term a few weeks ago when visiting Portland, Oregon. We were at the Saturday Market, and heard the folks sitting just behind us use it when watching one of the many music shows.

At first I didn't know what the term meant, but now that I finally understand it I think it is pretty neat.

'Crunchy' is seriously OLD SCHOOl. Not a new term whatsoever...I think it started after that firstr wave of granola (the food-natural foods, Moosewood kitchen in Ithaca, making your own granola-ya know?) interest back in the 70's. The great granola surge of the 70s. I am serious. So anything hippie related is granola. I lived in Missoula in the early late 80's early 90's and the term was common then. Often strung together like " Earthy Crunchy Granola Types'......and oft abbreviated to just Crunchy. Not that many places are truly crunchy these days, though. Many former locations have gone either yuppie or meth-y.):

This thread is hilarious though-love the comments.
surprised granola is not a commonly known term in sonoma, though!

Granola goes way, way back to the 1800's.
The "revival" occurred in the 60's.
It was popular in the 70's but in a quiet way (we used to call it gorp but i don't know why) and then gradually became more available to "the masses" (sorry) as the corporate machine became aware of the growing interest in healthy and whole foods and so capitalized on it.
The granola (and those granola bars .... bleccchhhh) that most people eat today (like the crap that brands like Kellog's, etc. makes) is nothing like the real thing and the amount of sugar and low quality and stale ingredients offer something that's far from healthy.

An old childhood friend of mine from Pennsylvania lives up there in Santa Rosa. He's a huge pothead and Phish-freak. If it's possible for a human being to literally smoke themselves retarded over the course of a number of years, then he's successfully completed that task.
