Just tried Tom's Best-Ever Granola, available @ Monterey Market in Berkeley and the Kensington Farmer's Market (Sundays). Hand-made by a real Tom, who lives in Berkeley.

And it is really a "best-ever."

Carmelized just to the edge of dark, generously rich in organic grains and nuts and dried fruit, and--best of all, from my point of view--not too sweet. Compost-able packaging has whimsical artwork and a sparkle-y ribbon.

I bought some yesterday @ Monterey Mkt, thinking I'd sprinkle some on my morning oatmeal over the course of the week as a not-too indulgent treat. But my husband (who claims he is not a granola lover) and I started watching a movie last night, and I pulled the bag out, and we (esp. he, raving about its deliciousness) polished it off. I headed to the Kensington Farmer's Market (a great little market) today for more!
