sweet & tart!
I think the strawberries are great! I love the sweetness! I could see myself snacking on them way too much... also something that you can add to cereal, smoothies and other foods. Extremely convenient and great tasting!
I gave a can to my daughter in law. She gave them to my grand daughter she had to take them away she wouldn't stop eating them. She loved them. Everything we have tasted so far is good. Thanks for sending me your specials.
THIS IS AN EXCELLENT PART OF MY SUPPLIES AS A DIABETIC.
THESE STRAWBERRIES COMPRISE A HEALTHY PART OF MY DIABETIC AS WELL AS MY FAMILY'S FRUIT DIET. ADDED TO HOT OR COLD CEREAL IT IS HIGHLY NUTRITIONAL AND HANDY ANY SEASON OF THE YEAR.
I would buy this again and recommend to friends.
Recentry I have been hearing talk of the great health benifits of freeze dried strawberries. Buying the #10 can is much less cost than the grocery store size bags..... and thye taste great. If they sold organic, I would buy them by the pallet !
I like having the convenience of having fruit ready to eat. When times get really hard fresh fruits will be hard to come by. Glad to add these to my food storage.
Better hide these from the kids
Great taste . Can eat right out of the can. Kids can't get enough of them.
A DELICIOUS, LOW CALORIE, HIGLY NUTRITIOUS FOOD.
THESE SLICED STRAWBERRIES ARE AN IMPORTANT INGREDIENT OF MANY OF OUR FAMILY RECIPES. I USE THEM IN MY WEIGHT LOSS PROTEIN SHAKES, IN COLD OR HOT BREAKFAST CEREALS, CAKES AND STRAIGHT OUTOF THE CAN AS A SNACK. THESE STRAWBERRIES ARE ONE OF THE MOST NUTRITIOUS FRUITS AVAILABLE TO US.
As part of my survival supplies, I am now into my "long shelf life" phase. I have begun purchasing my #10 cans from The Ready Store. Although I have not yet tasted these, I based my purchase on other reviewers who have, and freeze-dried is apparently the best way to go for superior taste. I am especially happy that I can buy one or two cans at a time, since we are retirees on a fixed income. I will continue to buy these as long as I have the means. Thanks, Ready Store!
would buy again
they were good, would buy again
Delicious! Always have strawberries on hand whether they are in season or not. They make a great addition to your food storage. Beware once opened, they will be gone fast as they make a great snack and you will come up with so many ways to use them. Keep an extra supply on hand. Once you try them, you will understand why this suggestion is made.
Great snack and fruit for kids
We have these in our storage for a great snack or to add to breakfasts. Taste wonderful.
Going to be hard to keep these in stock!
I was surprised at how great these strawberries are. So many uses also. I'm looking forward to trying the new "Whole Strawberries".
This is my favorite freeze dried fruit. You won't be disappointed.
Great Strawberry Snack
I like these better right out of the can than in my cereal. But they are good in cereal. I will have to keep buying to keep them for emergencies, we keep eating out of all our stock.
These never made it in our food storage because my kids ate them all up!! These are a healthy snack and they LOVE them! I will be purchasing more for storage and more for everyday snack time too!!!
No more waste!
These are sooooooo good. My grand kids love these. I have to watch them or they'll eat the whole can in one sitting. My African Grey parrots love them too. I like that I can leave these in their cups for the day and not worry about the fruit spoiling. Will order again.
We camp from end of November through first week of April and fruit is a must! Since we volunteer on an island, we have to take a boat to get fresh fruit. This is the next best thing to fresh! All the fruits we have tried have been good!
When I make my orders, I have several friends ask me to order these.
Their kids eat them out of the can (so do I) we use them in Jello and other dishes...Smoothies!!
One of my favorite products.
I am very happy with the quality of these strawberries. A very good price and the quality is amazing!
A healthy choice for any survival package and at a great price!
taste great and healthy
This product is amazing and can be used for a lot of different things. Is good on toast and nice and sweet to eat right out of the can for a snack.
I have these strawberries with my morning cerial and it is really great. I didn't intend to use my emergency food storage but glad I tried this and I am ordering more for regular use.
A must for food storage
Strawberry slices are an absolute must for our food storage. These are delicious, much better than some competitor brands. We mostly eat them plain but love to throw them in cereal as well. My favorite part is that I know that with Saratoga Farms, I will be getting more product than many other brands yet I never pay more.
A healthy fruit available now anytime of the year in a handy #10 can.
So much vitamin C packed into this sweet and nutritionally rich fruit!
Sweet and delicious treat!
With all sorts of bad weather disturbing farming, I'm stocking up on nutritious fruits for my family to enjoy.
I love strawberries and knowing that I can have these in case times get really hard will bring a bit of comfort for me. It's the little things that matter. My kids love these as well so we will be sure to have a good supply available.
A must have item!
These freeze dried strawberries are delicious. Glad I bought some for long term storage & some for immediate use. Great with cereals, yogurt or any where you'd use fresh strawberries. Buying these elsewhere costs way more for a small quantity. I'd rather buy in bulk when they are on sale & stock up. Highly recommend these & suggest you buy extra.
I'll buy more of these. Add some to cereal or just munch right out of the can.
Cake icing: 1 Cup strawberries: place in a blender DRY and blend until it's "dust". Add 1 Tablespoon of DRY vanilla instant pudding mix, and blend with strawberries. Add 1 cup of milk and blend until mixed well, let sit for 5 minutes. Ice cupcakes. Enjoy!!!
My Grandchildren love these for snacks and in their cereal
I tried these out at the Self Reliance expo and thought they were great. Figured I would buy some when I got home but held off due to price. Then a couple weeks ago I noticed when looking on the site that this can has 30% more product than the brand I had been buying. The cost per ounce was a wash and I will be buying these from here on out since they taste superior to the spongier stuff from the other brand.
Delicious, Healthy snack
I just opened my first can of your sliced strawberries, and they are delicious! Being pre-diabetic, it's so imperative to find low-sugar, healthy snacks AND fruit options....These delicious slices are almost addictive! I will definitely be adding more to my prep storage!
Sweet Goodness Anytime
This can is good size and the amount of strawberries is a great price. Once opened my kids and I will eat these staight from the can until they are gone. Perfect way to have your daily fruit in a time of need.
I bought 4 of this product for my husband who loves strawberries. I want him to be able to have goodies just like the kids if and when we have to utilize our storage. When we recieved the 4 cans of strawberries we decided that we had to at least open 1 to try. Wow they were a huge success. We sat there and ate practically the whole can while watching tv that night. I have hidden the other 3 cans so he can't find them right now so we will have them in an emergency. Love the product.
Great but a word of caution
My family found these quite fun to eat, they look good, they smell good, and they taste decent. They were pretty tart and somewhat sour but this can be remedied by adding the strawberries to something else or using a touch of sugar.
This was my family's first experience with freeze dried strawberries and we dug right in - only to find that the inside of our mouths were sore afterwards. It turns out that because these are so dry and slightly abrasive (at first) that if you eat them too quickly they can scratch up the inside of your mouth. After some experimenting we found two solutions. The first option is to place the strawberry in your mouth and just give it 5 seconds before chewing/sucking on it so it can absorb some moisture. The second option is that if you place some of these in a bowl and leave them exposed to the air for a few hours they absorb some ambient moisture and become soft enough to munch with speed.
One #10 can of strawberries goes a long way. :)
Sweet & Tart! Delicious
Great to snack right out of the can! Even our infant and toddler love them right out of the can. Planning on throwing them into our cream of wheat, oats, and vanilla yogurt from the ready store. Any powder left at the bottom of the can we stir into milk and yogurt so nothing is wasted from this #10 can. Only down-side I see is that this product is cheaper through other food storage websites.
OK but not what I expected.
Strawberry slices OK as a snack but I wouldn't buy it for "bad" times. Good taste but not that much food in the can. And if you think slices will double in size after you soak it in hot water, you are wrong.
By the way, the container has about 24 servings 27 calories each. Total 648 calories per can.
Also, have of the container was just dust, not slices.
In my opinion, three cans of fruit cocktail from Costco have way more value and about 8 times cheaper.
I'll stick with cans.
