Cranberry Bog Frogs

Cranberry Bog FrogsCranberry Bog Frogs is perhaps an iteration on the popular Chocolate Turtle, except these are supposed to be a chocolatey homage to the frogs that inhabit the cranberry bogs of Cape Cod.

A product of Cape Cod Provisions LLC, these bite-sized morsels take a mixture of caramel, dried cranberries, and sliced almonds, shaped into something that might possibly have an amphibious resemblence, and then covered from head to toe in chocolate. Finally, each piece is garnished with a dried cranberry on top.

Taste

These are certainly yummy.

The first taste that hits you is an overwhelming chocolate and caramel combo. You can't really taste much of the cranberries at all. You can, however, feel and taste something fruity inside, but if you didn't know what fruit it was, you'd more likely guess it was raisin.

I'm not much of a chocolate expert, so I can't say if the chocolate is of premium quality or not. As a junk-food-aholic, perhaps it doesn't matter. It's chocolate.

Quality

Overall, there's something in this that tells me the quality is average. Nothing really strikes me as being of high quality.

There's just enough sliced almonds present to give it just enough crunch.

The caramel doesn't really stick to your teeth or mouth, that's a plus for me. Also, it doesn't have an overwhelming sweet taste.

Overall

These Cranberry Bog Frogs definitely have a "snackability" factor to them. I found myself wanting to stuff these things down one after another. But at a cost of $2.49 for a three-piece package, you probably don't want to do so.

I wouldn't put these on my shopping list, but if I happened to see them at a store, I'd probably pick up another three-piece package.

I don't understand. It says right on the package these are cashews, not almonds. Not trying to bash or anything, but you should read the package before you eat or review a product.

And these are awesome. I highly recommend them.
