Shari's Berries Review

With Easter having just passed and Mother's Day in the not too distant future,gifts and treats are in the forefront of my mind. Even though I am on a diet(healthy lifestyle), I still want to treat myself just like everyone else.

Depriving oneself can lead to an even bigger urge to fall off the wagon so to speak, and end up having the opposite effect.

So when I was considering what kind of treat to get for myself, I had too look in the most crave inspiring  place.

Shari's Berries has anything and everything that someone could want to indulge their taste buds with.

Just looking at all of the incredible treats was making my mouth water. Chocolatey sweet goodness everywhere. Had I been looking at this a few months ago(before I started living healthier) I would have ordered everything in sight. It all looks divine.

After looking around the site thoroughly, I finally found the perfect thing for me.

I decided to go with something that is a wonderful treat and yet still healthy and completely guilt-free.

The 3-Month Harvest Deluxe Fruit Club. I have always wanted to try a monthly fruit club, and this one looked incredible.

Even better, I used the code 20OFF29 to save $20 and weekday shipping is FREE!! There is no way you can beat that.

I know many of you may be thinking, "How can fruit be a treat?" Well, very simple. I love fruit anyway, but there is an immense difference in the fruit you get at a store and the stuff you get from Shari's Berries.

Plus it is really fun to get a beautiful box of a different fruit each month shipped to you like a present. I enjoy getting anything in the mail, but especially a gift, and even more so one that I can eat.

So my first of 3 shipments arrived last last month.

March - Pixie Tangerines & Cara Cara Oranges (5lbs)

These are some of the most beautiful, fresh fruits I have ever seen. I was very impressed just by the appearance at first glance.

These taste AMAZING! I knew they would be wonderful, much better than store bought, but I was still blown away by how fantastic they actually were. It definitely was a treat.

Cara Cara Oranges
These are so juicy and sweet. Not even a hint of bitterness. The fruit is so perfect. Not mushy or over ripe, but also not dry or hard to eat. 

They are perfectly seedless and so great for snacking. I love that they do not taste overly sour or too acidic. They are wonderful.

Pixie Tangerines
These are perfection! I liked these even more than the fabulous Cara Cara Oranges. These are even sweeter and more delicious. They are so easy to peel and the small size is so convenient and adorable.

These are also seedless of course. I wish that they were bigger just because they taste so amazing that one is not enough(neither is 10, lol)

I wish I could eat these every day, and I am so sad that they are gone. This is the best fruit(of any kind) that I think I have ever had. I am so in love with these.

The great thing about getting fruit instead of sweets is that you still satisfy your craving for something sweet, only you don't have to feel bad at all, and your jeans and scale will not suffer.

Plus in my case, my daughter eats everything mommy eats. She is kind of a chubby girl for her age(18 months) so anything to help her stay healthy is a winner in my book. She LOVED these. She probably at close to half, literally.

And to think, I have 2 more awesome months of fruit to come. I am so excited.

April - Giant Coastal Strawberries & Tropical Kiwi (3lbs)

I love Kiwi. I hardly ever get it because it is always quite bad from the stores around here, but It's one of my favorite fruits. I am so excited about that. Plus, strawberries are great too. Last time I got them at the store they were so sour I couldn't even eat them. I am really looking forward to this.

May - Mango & Papaya (3lbs)

Mango is my all time favorite fruit. It's hard to find good ones here, but I do occasionally. I can only imagine how much better these will be though. And I have never had a fresh papaya, so I am really excited for this.

If you are looking for a wonderful and healthy treat for you or anyone you know, I STRONGLY recommend the Harvest Select Fruit Club(3 months, 6, or 12, depending on how much you want to spend). I know I would be over the moon if someone got this for me as a gift. 

With Mother's Day coming up, this is a real winner. You can get your mom(or wife, sister, etc) a beautiful gift, that keeps on giving and does not die like flowers and they is totally guilt free(unlike candy or sweets) and yet still tastes incredible. 

I guarantee that anyone who receives this will be thrilled. 

And if you do want the more indulgent treats, Shari's Berries is your place for that too. Trust me. It was very hard not to get all the yummy goodies that I saw. Chocolate covered pretzels, berries, cookies, etc. Sea Salt Caramels, Peanut Butter Bark, the list goes on and on. Something for everyone and so much more.

*Although I received a $65 GC toward the purchase of this item to facilitate a review, all opinions are 100% my own*


  1. These really do look good and the oranges have such a great color about them. I use to love eating the tiny little oranges you could buy in the store, I think they were called Cuties. I can't always find them anymore and truth is I was never an orange eater so it is rare for me to like them. The kiwi sounds the best, can't wait to hear what you think of them.
