I have to say, I don’t know what to think of Cranberry Cove. It says on the label “made with Ocean Spray cranberries” with the OS logo. What it doesn’t say, is Ocean Spray trademarked and owns the Cranberry Cove name. This is an Ocean Spray product. I found them in my local Wal-Mart. $1.00 for 3.5oz. That equals $4.57/lb. Clearly someone is making $$ on cranberries.

When turning over the bag (which, by the way, I like: the graphics are excellent) I looked at the ingredients. Cranberries, Sugar, Citric acid, sunflower oil and ELDERBERRY JUICE(for color). Emphasis mine. Since when do we have to add acid and color back into cranberries? Seems like they take so much out they have to add stuff back in? This is the first time in my memory that we’ve added color to cranberries. Cranberry Cove seems to ME to be the Choice product that OS said they would never put on the retail market. Remember the whole scamberry thing?

wow.

    You are definately right that someone is making money and we all know it’s not the growers!

      How do the Cranberry Cove dried cranberries taste? Is this a premium product?

        I actually think they are ok. Not a premium product, a low cost alternative to the real thing.

    I think Cranberry Coast is a fantastic product……..way to go Ocean Spray! For ingredients and toppings, I use Coast….tastes fantastic and I save a few bucks. I love them on salads, as topping to oatmeal and cereal, and they are fantastic in breads. I eat them in yogurt, with cottage cheese, and even sprinkle them on top of a cream cheese bagel! They are especially good in chocolate chip cookies. Yum! Thanks awesome company for bringing to market a value dried cranberry with the endorsement of the trusted Ocean Spray name. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm……..gonna go put me some dried cranberries in something and eat it up. 😉 BB

    Troy – Randy Papadellis, Ocean Spray’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said: “Our fiscal 2012 financial results reflect strong performance amid a sluggish economy and volatile marketplace and continue a trend–over the past four years Ocean Spray has delivered record-highs in sales and profits, as well as in returns for our grower-owners.”

    I just learned that the trademark on Cranberry Cove was abandoned as if 6/30/2014. Looks like we won’t be seeing these packages on the shelves.
