    I am in need of the name of a granola that we bought while over seas at your store but cannot remember the name but we do remember that it was sold in a black box, so if you could forward the name, brand and/or picture, that would be great.
    We are trying to have a friend pick some up for us while on vacation over there to bring back to Canada. Thanks so much for your time in responding.
