“Blueberry” items

Ahh, blueberries...now in everything from your breakfast cereal to muffins, granola bars, and sauces—or are they? Turns out that most of the blueberry-flavored items on grocery store shelves don't feature a single actually berry, just artificial blueberry flavor. Buy your own berries and add them to plain cereal for a real health boost.

How do you feel about blueberries in general?

I love blueberries and so does the rest of the family.  I have bought waffles or ganola bars with blueberry on the label but not as a substitute for real berries or expecting to find them in the products.

I don't like blueberries or blueberry flavored things. I usually add them in small quantities to my other fruity foods (yogurt, smoothies, spread, juice and pancake muffins) They're healthy fruits.

I'm the opposite.. I don't like fresh blueberries but I don't mind blueberry flavoring. I'll will eat fresh if they are in pancakes, muffins, etc.

I'd rather have fresh berries baked in something. I don't like them raw. It's the texture of the berry. 

I will be buying tons of blueberries once I get my waffle iron. My son loves blueberry waffles.
