Cape Cod Cranberry Candy - Dark Chocolate with Cranberries and Almonds

The US confectioner Cape Code Provisions makes many products with cranberries, also other fruit, this one is a dark chocolate bar, at 48% cacao content, with dried cranberries and almonds. The ingredient listing is fairly good, though a little long and the first ingredient is high; sugar, chocolate liquor (processed with alkali), cocoa butter, milk fat, soy lecithin (as an emulsifier), vanillin, natural flavours, dried cranberries (cranberries, sugar and sunflower oil) and roasted almonds.

How did it taste? Pretty good, though not as sour as I would expect with cranberries. The chocolate was fairly good tasting, the nuts were crunchy, and there was the only occasional sweetness "pocket" where you hit a large cranberry. I don't know that I like this enough to buy it again, and I don't have a reliable source for it.
