Bored with the usual lineup of granola mixes, we sought something…well, different. And we found it when we plucked the last bag of Sahale Crunchers Fruit & Almond Snack off the supermarket shelf ($4.50 for 4 ounces).

Curious, my breakfast pal and I didn’t make it to the car before opening the bag, tasting the contents and making them quickly vanish. We had the cherries-apples-maple version. Here’s what the company has to say: “We combine roasted sliced almonds with naturally dried cherries and apples. The mix is lightly glazed with maple and finished with a touch of cinnamon.”

Sahale suggests adding the mix to salads, yogurt, oatmeal and ice cream. A fine notion, if you can actually get it home and into the kitchen. Give this one four stars and order more.
