I should have specified that, sorry. :oops: I think they got the name because they look like raisins.
No, my bad crewsk, assuming things again. And I agree Ishbel, I think it is a cute name too. Made me buy em. They come in several flavours now I noticed, cherry, strawberry, orange and regular. I am sticking with regular for the cookies but for snacking I like the orange ones.

I did the same thing Alix. It's a bad habit for me! I haven't tried the other flavors but they sound good!

Isn't it amazing that we all speak English, but our knowledge of each other's version of the language is SO different?!

Trying to explain treacle in another thread was hard enough... but with craisins - and not just plain old dried cranberries, but flavoured, dried cranberries ... WOW... I wonder WHY anyone would think that cranberries would be better if they tasted of orange or strawberry?!!!

I think it's ASDA Ishmel, but one of the supermarkets here calls them Craisins, they are made by Ocean Spray who make the juice. I love em too.

I don't have an ASDA near me - only Waitrose and Sainsbury. But I'll check and see if they sell them as craisins. I buy the dried (well, semi-dried!) cranberries in Marks and Spencer.
