Shari’s Berries: Chocolate-covered deliciousness

Category Contests

I get a lot of product offers. Most things I am offered I say “no thanks” to, because I don’t really want (and don’t think you want) most of the items I’m so generously approached about. However, when the nice folks from Shari’s Berries offered to let me check out some of their products and then do a giveaway for all of you, I decided it was time to say “yes.” You know, for you.

After perusing every possible available permutation of chocolate dipped strawberries in their collection, I opted for the sweet cherries and half-dozen fancy strawberries, just in time for a little celebration of my daughter’s birthday while my parents were visiting. We opened up the box that night to find our treats looked surprisingly like the product pictures on the website. What’s more, the strawberries were humongous. Being the optimistic sort that I am (ahem…), I immediately went for the cherries, figuring the strawberries were probably tasteless. (We’ve all done that, right? Bought the huge strawberries that end up tasting like nothing?)

Well, the cherries were delicious—sweet and juicy, and covered with a generous chocolate shell—but as my family raved about the strawberries I decided I had to try one of those, too, just for research purposes. I cannot tell you where those strawberries came from or how they made them that huge and sweet, but they were amazing, as well. I wouldn’t hesitate to give these as a gift, because although they’re more money than I would probably spend on myself, they really are a wonderfully decadent treat.

And that’s where you come in. Maybe you’ve been thinking about… oh, I don’t know… some chocolate strawberries for Mother’s Day? One lucky Want Not reader is going to win a $50 certificate to Shari’s Berries this week! All you have to do is review the contest rules and regulations, then check out Shari’s Berries on Facebook and give ’em a thumbs up, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, April 21st, 2011 for a chance to win. I’ll pick the winner via number generation and who I think will be most likely to share their berries with me. (Kidding! Really just the number thing.)

Ready? Go!
