      Dried apricots are fine by me.

      Like mentioned, try a small amount and see how you do.

          I eat raisins most every day. Cranberries are supposed to be horrible for IC, but they haven't bothered me in granola bars (as long as the granola doesn't rely on a lot of soy protein). I haven't really tried much else yet besides dried blueberries, which again, I eat daily.

            I eat a lot of dried Mango. It doesn't bother me, but I tolerate a lot of things. I shy away from dried cranberries too, unless there is very few in a recipe. Same with dried tomatoes. If there's a yummy dish with them in a restaurant, I'll order it, eat maybe one and avoid the rest. But I LOVE my dried mango.
