Blueberries: Juicy, Healthy & On Sale!

Starting today, May 31, and while supplies last, we're having a flash sale on juicy organic blueberries, just $4.49 per pint (reg. $5.49)

And if taste and price weren't enough to lure you in, think about how healthy they are. They're full of antioxidants that can protect our bodies from the damage of free radicals. They have a high fiber content helping support digestion and lowers cholesterol. Plus their potassium, calcium and magnesium levels have been found to decrease blood pressure naturally!

If you find yourself eating more blueberries these days, you are not alone. Per the New York Times

According to statistics published by the United States Department of Agriculture, per capita consumption of fresh raspberries grew 475 percent from 2000 to 2012, the most recent year for which data are available. Blueberry consumption is up 411 percent, and strawberries are up 60 percent.

And it's not just because they are healthy. Farmers have created new techniques which improve the berries' flavor and allow them to be grown in places they've never grown before. So there's plenty of room on the blueberry bandwagon, but with this price our supplies will be going fast!
