|We’re not saying that Mr. and Mrs. Raisinet take their time, but 80 years after the birth of original chocolate-covered raisins, there’s finally a little sister: new Cranberry Raisinets. The bouncing addition to the family of 100% chocolate-covered whole dried fruits is a superfruit, a natural food source that is highly concentrated with a complex supply of quality nutrients, including antioxidants. Ocean Spray Cranberries, the surrogate mother, is the nation’s number one cranberry supplier. With “½ serving of real fruit in every ¼ cup,” Cranberry Raisinets are available nationwide in a resealable 5.5-ounce bag (MSRP $3.29) and single-serve .81-ounce 100 Calorie Packs (shown in photo—MSRP $0.89 each).
The Pilgrims first encountered cranberries when they settled in what is now Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Cranberries have two powerful antioxidants, flavanoids and Vitamin C, which have been shown to help the body fight free radicals. Cranberries have long been used medicinally for prevention and treatment of urinary tract infection, gum disease, stomach ulcers, heart disease and cancer. For health purposes, though, consult with your healthcare practitioner—don’t count on Cranberry Raisinets.
