These freeze-dried blueberries are a quite good alternative to the fresh ones that is very hard to find in my country, especially the organic ones. these are grown in a local farm and freeze-dried without additive sugar or other additives - big adventages. Also they are crunchy and can be eaten fresh or added to baking.
Ordinarily I prefer to buy fresh, locally-grown produce, but blueberries -- which are especially rich in antioxidants -- are often unavailable fresh from local sources. The advantages of this product over other dried blueberries are: - it's organic; - it's unsweetened; - the blueberries are freeze-dried, which saves resources (less water to transport) and is supposed to preserve the vitamins well. On the other hand, they cost a fortune, and I wasn't blown away by the flavor. They're certainly edible from the package, but I found them lackluster -- neither crunchy nor especially flavorful (and obviously not juicy -- they're completely dry from the package). When I rehydrated them they had slightly more body and "presence," but they still don't come close to fresh blueberries. If you're buying nonlocal blueberries and want to reduce the environmental footprint of your purchase, this product probably beats other dried blueberries (and fresh blueberries). I recommend rehydrating them and using them where they're not meant to "star" as soloists (e.g., in fruit salad) or in baked goods, where the difference from fresh will be less pronounced.
