Did you know? Dried cranberries are sometimes referred to as "craisins," though the word "Craisin" is a registered trademark of Ocean Spray Cranberries.

They are popular in trail mix, salads, and breads, with cereals or eaten on their own.

“That always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people would want to be around someone because they’re pretty. It’s like picking your breakfast cereal based on color instead of taste.”
