Bought some OceanSpray Craisins, cherry flavored cranberries. Wasn't sure I'd like them since I'm not too fond of raisins, but I think they're very good. They have a sweet and tart taste. I'd definately buy them again.

Craisins are one of those things that I'm sorry I ever found out about. Kinda like chocolate graham crackers. Too addicting! You certainly can't eat just one (handful).

It says one serving is 1/3 cup, but I didn't measure out what I ate, I'm sure I ate more!

Love them. Try them on a big salad, topped with grilled chicken, some blue cheese, almonds and mandarin oranges.

Also put them in oatmeal.

I just bought some at the store tonight. My teen son gets migraines if he gets too hungry so I bought them as a more healthy snack he can carry in his backpack at school.

Mixed with walnuts is a really good combo. Oh yeah add some chocolate chips if you're being bad.
