Archer Farms Raspberry Crème Brûlée Granola

Target figured out that people were buying those 99 cent bags of cereal to try all the delicious-looking new flavors, so they discontinued them apparently, and are now forcing people to invest something in the ballpark of $3.50 to find out if a flavor is good or not.

Fortunately, this one is. As was the case with a previous selection or two, we basically just have granola dressed up with a few fixin's and bells and whistles, but somehow, in this case, it wasn't as much of a let-down.
It really wasn't a let-down at all, in fact. It actually tastes like raspberries because there are those freeze-dried cereal raspberries all through it—in fairly decent numbers, I might add—and if you try really hard, you can actually detect a distinctly crème brûlée-esque flavor. To use some wine critic terminology, the crème brûlée is most prominent in the finish of the cereal, while the attack is distinctly raspberry-ish. It's "sensual, yet cerebral." Not really. What the heck does that even mean, anyway?

The raspberries felt less like styrofoam than cereal box fruit usually does. The granola was sweet, yet otherwise run-of-the-mill, the same as every other fancy AF cereal we've seen so far. There were a few massive clusters of granola, particularly at the top of the box, and farther down, the chunks were smaller.

Sonia was a big fan, too, so I know it's not just me. I can more confidently recommend this cereal than any other we've looked at so far.

I give this granola 8 out of 10 stars.
