  • Hell no.

    They suck. They are only flavorless shadow's of real strawberries.

    I get them from farmers market in the summer so they taste like a strawberry should. They aren't as good looking as the perfect, red giants at the grocery store but could care less.

  • I live in FL. Most of my berries come from an hour down the road.

  • Being in California, of course. But then I'm able to buy them from farmer markets, private gardens, etc.

  • I live in CA, right in the area where they grow a lot of the strawberries. It makes me SAD that they'd let this pesticide be used, especially since so many of the fields are near homes, schools, and major streets, where NO ONE can avoid contact when it disperses.

    I guess I will just have to go back to buying from the organic sellers at the farmers market.

  • Do how will we know if the dangerous pesticide is being used? No one cares about you. You have to look after you....so much research with all the engineered food, pesticides, etc. It's awful.
