I received a sample for review
Funny story: We first discovered Shari's Berries about a decade ago, when someone delivered a box to our doorstep, addressed to someone we didn't know, but with our home address. There was no one by that name living on our street, so whoever it was who addressed it got both the house number and street incorrect. There was no way to contact the intended recipient, so Alfie and I decided to steal the box and eat the berries ourselves. We've been eating and loving their berries ever since! These chocolate covered berries are so sweet and succulent. The strawberries and chocolate are a match made in heaven! Shari's Berries make great Mother's Day presents, hostess gifts, birthday presents, anniversary presents, every occasion in between, or no occasion at all.
Note to any blogger: when Shari's Berries invites you to review one of their products, you NEVER say you're too busy. You thank your lucky stars and start drooling! Since it's spring break and The Pea will be celebrating her birthday this Sunday, I ordered the Cheesecake Trio & Full Dozen Mother's Day Strawberries.
Yes, they're perfect for Mother's Day, but these chocolate covered strawberries are decorated with sweet pastel swirls and flower sprinkles, so they work for any spring party, spring birthday (especially for girly girls like The Pea!) or spring occasion. The strawberries were gigantic and amazingly sweet, and they were covered with just enough chocolate for the two tastes to blend harmoniously with every bite, neither taste overpowering the other. What. A. Treat.
You can order these berries by the dozen or half dozen. And to make the occasion even more special, you can go all out and order a baked treat to accompany them! You can choose from dipped cookies, dipped pretzel sticks, cake pops, chocolate covered cherries, mini cheesecakes, even a chocolate occasion card (a slab of chocolate with a greeting for a birthday, Mother's Day, Easter or other occasion, depending on the season).
As you can see from the photos, I chose the Cheesecake Trio to accompany my order of chocolate covered strawberries. They came in a box of 3 mini cheesecakes, about 3 inches in diameter. Don't be fooled by their size, they pack a powerful taste punch! Each of the 3 varieties -- Classic New York, White Chocolate, and Rocky Road -- features cream cheese and chocolate, but each is unique and distinct. I have never had these before, so it was a wonderful new experience. Each bite is so rich, you really don't need more than a mouthful to savor the yumminess... but it was truly impossible to stop after one bite.
I could have taken a photo of myself with chocolate smeared all over my lips, my mouth stuffed with chocolate, to make the point that I can't recommend Shari's Berries highly enough -- but I'm sure you'd rather look at photos of yummy Shari's Berries, so I'll take pity on everyone and just say I can't recommend Shari's Berries highly enough. Without reservations. Seriously. Just go and try them for yourself!
