How Sweet It Is - Wednesday, May 15 WSJ Crossword

Hello Muggles,

I know we usually discuss the Meta puzzle, but I am stumped on yesterday's WSJ crossword puzzle that has the crossword puzzle title "How Sweet It Is". I solved the grid, but I cannot make the connection between the "How Sweet It Is"title and the starred clues/answers. If someone figured it out, I would be grateful if they shared it on this forum.

Thanks,

John

The first word of each theme entry can anagram to a fruit.
Mile-> lime
Cheap-> peach
Lump-> plum
Among-> mango

So “mixed” fruit snack.
