It looked similar to a pretzel rod, except the outside was obviously granola and it had a thin center of a nougaty-type substance.

I'm happy to see that there are other people who remember these. I loved them...well at least the caramel flavor. I remember there were three flavors: caramel, chocolate and one other which I can't remember. I don't think that they were made for that long of time. I wish they would come back out of that someone knew the recipe so I could make

Granola clusters were awesome. I didn't think I'd be able to figure out what they were b/c I didn't remember the name, but it came right up. They were so good. I'd eat the outside & then have a long nougat stick. Whoever made them needs to bring them back.....and Oreo Big Stuffs, the giant double stuff Oreo!

I also remember these short-lived delights from elementary school. I wish I knew who made them and if they are still in existence anywhere. I would pay anything to try one again, just once... Mmmmmm, caramel.

Granola clusters were made by Nature Valley. Like so many things that were truly good, like guia camph green ointment (for chest colds) and grape tang for camping (you could never mix it wrong), they of course are no longer available. Why??? Who knows...

I remember the commercial jingle- "Granola Clusters- an answer to candy". These were as close to a health food candy that actually tastes good as you will ever get. Bring back granola clusters!

Can you be more specific on the description of the granola clusters. What do you mean by pretzel rod?

I actually worked on this product back then. They were made by General Mills Inc. under the Nature Valley brand. Basically the inside was nougat which is made from sugar and then rolled in oats which was the granola claim. Don't kid yourself that they were health food, they were much closer to candy.

Nature Valley Granola Clusters - "Granola's Answer to Candy". They were about the length of a regular granola bar, round rather than rectangle. Nougat rolled in granola. Caramel, Almond, and Raisin varieties. I miss these sooo much.

I remember these and often wish they still made them! They were the best!!

When I was pregnant I had mad cravings for these. I nearly drove myself crazy trying to find them. I was so desperate that I wrote to the company begging them to bring them back. Even tried "making" one by peeling all the nuts from a Payday bar and rolling the center in granola. Not the same but what can I say...I was desperate.

I used to take these to my Cub Scout meetings when it was my turn to bring the snack. Always a big hit!

I agree with everyone! I miss those yummy round bars! Why'd they get taken off the market?

OMG here watching "The Empire Strikes Back" with my kids and when Luke Skywalker is eating a bar when he meets Yoda, I suddenly had a flash of the caramel granola cluster bar!! Did anyone else eat all of the granola off and savor the middle by eating it in small little bites? Heaven!

I miss those things. It was the only granola bar that I liked as a kid.

I remember my mom packed these in my purse as a special snack at a movie. They were the only "candy" we would get in our house. Loved the center, and YES, abosultely ate around it and saved the nougat for last.
