Sweet & Sour Raisin Nut Granola – Raisins like you’ve never tried!

Sweet & Sour Raisin Nut Granola – Raisins like you’ve never tried!

A new product makes this more exciting! You can add any dried fruit or raisins to this granola, but, I recommend using a new product line from Sun-maid raisins. I discovered them when I visited the Sun-maid Company Store in Selma, in Central California. They are called sour strawberry golden raisins and sour lemon golden raisins.

To me, they taste both a little sweet and a little sour…they’re delicious! It wakes up a simple granola to make it taste exciting and more delicious. They are made from golden raisins and drenched in fruit juices to make the flavor-packed offerings. I’ve been using them on salads, oatmeal, yogurt, or anywhere I can include them! Give these a try. If you can’t find them in stores, try their website at: Sun-maid
