Dried Fruit Goodness

Sunsweet Cherries, Mangoes and Blueberries are yum-diddly-dum-dum! I was looking for some new fruit to add to my granola and came across these beauties today. OH MY GAWD. They are soft and chewy and gooey! If you've ever had the Williams-Sonoma tart dried cherries, the cherries are DEFINITELY for you! I have loved 'em for years, but most grocery store varieties are bland yet sweet. These are tarty tart and sweet to boot. They will be perfect in the Williams Sonoma Chocolate Cherry Chunk Cookies recipe that I haven't made in eons 'cuz the good cherries are so hard to find. The blueberries are like super soft raisins...not like the hard nubs ones that one typically finds. The mango is super softly-chewy, huge strips, and dang yummy, too! They had a Berry Blend that I passed on...but I will be going back for. It has Blueberries, Bing Cherries, Raspberries, Cranberries and Red Tart Cherries. Save some for me!
