Crapola! makes baked apples

Crapola! baked apples are a perfect cold-weather treat.

Crapola! is the brand of high-fiber granola that "Makes Even Weird People Regular" – and while they may use humor to highlight the nutritional benefits of dietary fiber, Crapola! is serious about its ingredients.

Its four flavors are made by hand in Ely, Minnesota and available in select locations across the U.S., including Lunds & Byerlys,, Kowalski’s Markets, and many co-ops in its home state of Minnesota; in Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, and South Dakota; and online.
