I can get chili/chipotle chocolate almonds at a local store.  The chili provides a surprisingly minor note, but it's nice.
I would imagine that the crunchy-ness of the Imported Iraqi Baby Frogs would depend on the method in which they were processed before the chocolate enrobing.  Right now, I'm visualizing Sandra's confection as a chocolate-covered, amphibious version of balut <shudder>.

  Sandra described:
  "We use only the finest baby frogs, dew picked and flown from Iraq,
  cleansed in finest quality spring water, lightly killed, and then  
  sealed in
  a succulent Swiss quintuple smooth treble cream milk chocolate  
  envelope and
  lovingly frosted with glucose."

  Hey! You left off the URL of the place selling these. These sound  
  worth trying. :-)

  Munching on a few 52% cocoa, Dark Chocolate Chili Almonds. (with  
  Chipotle Chili Peppers, Ancho Chili Peppers and Cinnamon) that I just  
  picked up this evening at World Market. I also picked up 52% cocoa,  
  Dark Chocolate Expresso Beans. Not bad. Not bad. The dark chocolate  
  does a lot to temper down the chilis, although they do have a chili  
  aftertaste. Wonder if the frogs would be crunchy like the expresso
