You really have to watch the prices. Currently, at one store I shop at, 1 lb of fresh strawberries is $2.99 (holy expensive!), but 24oz of whole frozen strawberries is the same price (still expensive, but not as bad as fresh - and since they're whole, no added sugar). Blueberries are much cheaper frozen right now - a teeny tiny box (4 or 6 oz) of fresh is $4.99, but a 1lb bag of frozen is $3.99. I usually go to a u-pick strawberry farm every summer and pick a few boxes and freeze, and DH's aunt in Michigan does the same thing with blueberries and brings them to us, so I am able to freeze a year's worth of those 2 kinds of berries each year - for waaaaay cheaper than I could ever buy them. So look into that - or growing your own if you can - so much cheaper!
