Love this granola and the motto on the packaging....."Crapola- makes even weird people regular!". Good to know it is now available at Kowalskis so I can save a trip to Duluth.

We were introduced to Crapola while visiting friends in Ely last winter. We stuffed as many packages into our luggage as we could carry for the trip home. This year, we'll bring an empty suitcase. We would love to be able to buy it locally here in Maryland - this product would be a perfect fit for Trader Joe's!

I, too, love Crapola. Even though I can get it here, I still like to buy it at Zup's in Ely! I love it because it's only lightly sweetened and I love the roasted flavor it has. Just to put in another plug for an Ely original- try Gene Hicks gourmet coffee (also available at Kowalski's). He chooses his beans and roasts them in a way that is uniquely stomach-friendly. No more coffee tummy aches with Gene Hicks (and he has an organic version called Green Horizons).

Stroms, do not listen to the so-called expert advise given in this article! I am so tired of cliche packaging and "the right way" of doing things! I built a brand by bucking the system and paving new paths, you can do/have done the same! LOVE LOVE LOVE your product, the kitchy branding, packaging, and of course, the quality.
