Berry Deliciousness

Shari’s Berries

If you are anything like me, you absolutely, positively love receiving packages…especially when the package is a special gift. Doesn’t it just make you feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside? That is the exact feeling I had last week, when a handsome man in a brown uniform brought this to my door:

Okay…let me rewind just a bit, and explain how I was lucky enough to have a handsome man in a brown uniform deliver this deliciously sweet package to me. In last week’s post I explained how every Monday I participate in #Foodiechats on Twitter, which is a worldwide discussion on…yup, you guess it: food! Every Monday there is a different sponsor, who poses ten questions to the #Foodiechats community; we answer, discuss, retweet, etcetera. Monday, March 31st, Shari’s Berries was the sponsor, and while I was “minding my business,” running my mouth, and answer questions, I receive  a notification saying that I have been chosen in a random drawing to receive a gift from Shari’s Berries.

Really? Me? I won? But I was not even trying to win anything (Side Note: some of the best things come when your not looking for, or expecting it 🙂 ). At the end of the chat Shari’s Berries sent me a direct message, in order to retrieve my contact information, and informed me that my #RAOBerries (Random Act of Berries) package was on the way.

This little box made me feel special!

As I have stated before, I am not a fan of chocolate, however, there are a few instances when I indulge in the smooth brown sweetness; when it coats a juicy sweet strawberry, that is definitely one of those instances. I was beyond excited when I opened the package from Shari’s Berries and saw these beautifully decorated treats; Shari’s Berries’ Half Dozen Gourmet Dipped Swizzled Strawberries were absolutely gorgeous.

I almost did not want to eat them…I said ALMOST! 🙂 In addition to the exquisitely designed berries, “Shari” sent me a box of their Handmade Gray Sea Salted Caramels:

The caramels were good; they had just enough saltiness to accompany the sweetness of the chocolate and caramel, but the chocolate covered strawberries were my favorite. Delicious is an understatement when describing the Gourmet Dipped Swizzled Strawberries.

Luckily, or ironically, some of my family came over right after I opened the package, and I was able to share my beautiful gift from Shari’s; otherwise I would have been a complete glutton, and scarfed them down myself. 🙂

I would like to PUBLICLY thank Shari’s Berries for the wonderful gift they sent me! If you love someone, your mom, dad, a sibling, a significant other, or a special friend…send them a box of Shari’s Berries! Their BERRY DELICIOUSNESS will make them, and their tummies feel so, incredibly special.

Check out Shari’s Berries, and take a look at all their treats, including their chocolate covered pretzels and cookies, specials for Easter treats, their Mother’s Day and birthday treats, and their Half Dozen Hand-Dipped Home Run Strawberries (GO SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS)! 🙂

I cannot wait to send a few boxes out to my loved ones…and receive another (hint, hint 😉 ) from the handsome man in the brown uniform!

With Love, CoCo

      You are welcome! 🙂 But I don’t think they are based in LA. Check out their website…they ship all over! Or maybe someone will send you some soon! 😉

    Oh man! I’m so jealous! I sent some Shari’s Berries to a friend once but I’ve never tried them myself.
