Some foods are as loaded with history as they are with flavor. Strawberries are among this group. For example, did you know that references to strawberries go back more than 2,000 years? Or that American colonists "discovered" wild-growing strawberry plants as early as the 16th century? Or that the United States now produces approximately 25% of the world's strawberries?
Oh, and then there's the impossible-to-dispute fact that Trader Joe's Organic Strawberries are among the most flavorful berries in the universe. Yup, the universe. Positively bursting with flavor. And Vitamin C. Maybe it's the California sunshine. Perhaps the healthy organic soil. Possibly the organic methods used to cultivate and grow these beauties. Most likely, though, it's a combination of all of these fascinating factors that make Trader Joe's Organic Strawberries so tantalizingly delicious. Try them as a snack, on your favorite breakfast cereal, or atop a big bowl of your favorite ice cream. Looking for something a little more… off the wall? Top grilled fish with a salsa made with strawberries instead of tomatoes. Delicious! We're selling each one pound container for the terrific value price of $2.99 – a great everyday deal for Organic Strawberries.
