Besides being delicious, blueberries specialize in true-blue anti-oxidant power and are particularly bewitching covered in chocolate.
I received a pouch of these chocolate covered blueberries in my February Love with Food box.
I decided to go with a fresh tasting green tea to drink while I devoured these yummy blueberries, so I chose this Organic Gunpowder Green Tea from Simple Loose Leaf. The tea has a light, brothy texture and a delicious nutty background of flavor, and I liked the way this contrasted with the sweet-tart flavor of the blueberries and the bittersweet dark chocolate.
What I Think:
I was recently told that I “like everything!” by someone visiting my blog and reading a few of my reviews. And I guess, yeah, I’m guilty of that. Most of the foods that I’ve reviewed here, I’ve enjoyed. Occasionally, I’ll try something I don’t like, and I’ll tell it like it is when I come across those foods.
I sometimes wish that I had a more “discerning” palate, but, when I think about it, there’s nothing wrong with finding something that I like in most foods. It means that I get to enjoy more variety in my diet. Variety is the spice of life, baby!
And I do like these blueberries from Emily’s chocolates. First of all, I love that this is a local company. (Well, kind of local. We’re in the same state, anyway!) The dried blueberries are big and plump, and the dark chocolate shell is soft and decadent.
My Final Thoughts:
I devoured the bag in no time, and I found myself wishing that I had more. Because this IS a local company, I know that I’ll be able to find these products in some local shops, so next time I see them on the shelf, I’m going to be putting some in my cart! Yum!
