These dark chocolate clusters, with caramel, small bits of pecan and dried cranberries were an Alaska Jack creation. I didn't care for the hydrogenated palm oil, but the Alaska Jack Harper story was interesting. Apparently he got the idea for adding cranberries by watching grizzlies in Denali eat them. I didn't see any live bears in Alaska when I was there earlier this month, but I made up for that by eating quite a few chocolate bear chocsimiles (chocolate facsimiles).
