Simply Strawberry

Some of our most popular bouquets are composed only of strawberries.

From the budget conscious Strawberry Sampler, to the modest Deluxe Assorted Berries, to the Grand Gourmet, these berrilicious bouquets are some of our customers’ favorites.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like we just plop 6 or 12 berries in a box. Every berry that leaves our store is fresh, wholesome and usually dipped in gourmet chocolate, laced with a contrasting gourmet chocolate, or rolled in crushed toffee, toasted coconut, mini-chips, well you get the idea. We even fill some of our berries with Mango Key Lime cheesecake before dipping them in gourmet white chocolate and toasted coconut.

But it is the basic, sweet, healthy, and delicious berry itself that we are talking about here. A great source of antioxidents, fiber, and vitamin C these berries can take center stage all by themselves.

If you don’t have fresh berries, frozen ones still have many of the same health benefits, and can be made into delicious smoothies like the one in the recipe below. Let us know how you like it.
