Top Ten Ways To Eat A Craisin

Image credit
I am addicted to craisins. Particularly, I love the cherry flavored ones by Ocean Spray (and no, I have not been compensated for this post in any way! I'm just really really like craisins).

My Top Ten Ways To Eat A Craisin

1) In Cheerios. Seriously. When my husband was deployed in 2008, I think I mostly subsided on Cheerios with cherry flavored Craisins. I still love them. I think I should get General Mills and Ocean Spray together because I'm really on to something here.

2) In A Salad. The perfect salad toppings are craisins, hard-boiled eggs, croutons, apples, cheddar cheese, and a creamy dressing. Oh yes.

3) In Cookies. There is a recipe on the back of the craisins package for black forest cherry cookies that sounds amazing. But I've always eaten all the craisins before I could try it.

4) In Granola.

5) In Vanilla Yogurt. Mmmmmm. With granola if you want.

6) Take a Ritz cracker. Spread it with cream cheese. Then add 2-3 (cherry flavored!) craisins. YUM.

7) Are you ready to take it to the next level? Follow the steps in point #6, only use Brie cheese instead. Oh my goodness, it's wonderful.

8) In Chicken Salad. Anti-climactic after Brie with craisins, but still good.

9) Banana Cranberry Bread. Doesn't that sound divine? I haven't actually made this one yet, but soon.

10) By themselves, of course!

I'm sure all of these taste great with regular craisins, I'm just really partial to the cherry ones. Has anyone tried the Blueberry flavored craisins? I'm curious about those.

On a side note, I have never been able to find a coupon for Ocean Spray craisins, and I think that's lame. Has anyone else ever found coupons for them?

  1. mm i love craisins. in cookies and banana bread sound so yummy

  2. I've put Craisins and white chocolate chips together in oatmeal cookies. Oh, YUM.

  3. not sure if i want craisins now, or brie. =p we still working on a costco bag of craisins. maybe it'll be snack today.

  4. I've done the same recipe that I think Sheri is talking about. It is so good. I also love the ocean spray cranberry chicken recipe! It takes whole cranberries, but it is delicious.

  5. I once had a $1.00 coupon for Craisins that I got from a box of cereal--Special K maybe? But alas, I let it expire before I used the coupon!

  6. I have tried the blueberry flavor and like them. I recently found Craisins for $1.00 per bag at the local Kroger grocery and thought it was a good deal!

  7. I've never seen a coupon either, now that you mention it! My daughter loves them so I just buy the big bag at Costco. I don't have it right with me, but I have this granola bar-ish thing with Craisins in it I think you would totally dig - let me figure out where I put it and I'll send it to you :)
