It is no secret that I’m a sucker for chocolate. Mmm…..chocolate! And since I adore fresh fruit, anything that combines these two loves is a winner. But while I love chocolate, I think my husband is actually slightly addicted to it. If we don’t have any where he can see it, he will start on a scavenger hunt throughout the house to locate some. So no surprise that my entire family was super excited when a box from Shari’s Berries arrived containing a full dozen gourmet chocolate dipped strawberries, ten assorted chocolate covered cherries and four caramel and chocolate dipped pretzel rods.
My family has ordered from Shari’s Berries several times. If you follow me on Instagram, you might even remember that my mom sent me a box of chocolate dipped strawberries for my birthday last July!
Since we’ve received dipped berries before, we know that they taste the best when eaten a day or two after they’ve been received. After dinner that night we splurged and enjoyed these amazing goodies for dessert.
The berries as always were absolutely delicious. We had a combination of sizes and while I wish they could be more uniform for easier sharing, they tasted fabulous. We hadn’t tried the cherries or caramel pretzel rods before and both were a pleasant surprise. In fact, my husband became a bit obsessed with the cherries and kept going after them. I think I got only two from the box while he ate six. He asked me to get him some of those just for him so I’m thinking they will be perfect for Father’s Day!
The package came via UPS and deliveries to my house are typically made in the evening so I couldn’t get any great pictures for you when they arrived. As you can see, the berries looked fabulous! On the other hand, two of the cherries arrived damaged but I wasn’t really surprised. Unlike the strawberries, they have no real padding to speak of within the box. I think a little extra cushion would go a long way!
While we all think of sending flowers and candy for special occasions like a birthday or Mother’s Day, consider other opportunities to show loved ones you are thinking about them. Have you thought about sending special chocolate dipped berries for Easter? Any of the wonderful products from Shari’s Berries would be sure to please anyone! You’ll also find some fun Easter themed treats available as well.
One thing I did notice while shopping and is very important to keep in mind, when purchasing multiple items that go to the same location, you can save on shipping by picking larger baskets or shopping within the same product line. For example, by purchasing all berries and doing an add on item with the pretzel rods, I only paid for one shipping fee. If I had picked a product from Mrs. Fields and dipped berries for example, I would have been charged another shipping fee on top of that.
The Full Dozen Fancy Strawberries with Ten Chocolate Covered Cherries retail for $54.99. I was able to add the four pretzel rods for an additional $7.99. But you can get an even better value by using a Shari’s Berries Coupon Code to save even more. Right now you can save 20% off orders of $39+!
