    All the dried cranberries I buy are like Craisins - Craisins is a brand name - they are all sweetened. I suppose there are dried cranberries that are not sweetened, I just have not seen them in my markets. Taste one and see.

    I would leave them whole, they are small.

    I have used the sweetened dried cranberries in biscotti, they work well. I'll have to check the ones at TJ's when next I'm there.

    All dried cranberries sold in the US, unless marked otherwise, are pre-sweetened like Craisins. They are all interchangeable. (I buy a kosher brand from Fairway Market, because it's what they stock in bulk.)

    I have fairway where i live...didnt know they have them in bulk. Trader joes has them in plastic bags. They taste different than craisins.
