  11. I have never seen a strawberry of this size; and here in Denmark they grow very well.
    I hope it tasted as good as it looks.;))

  13. Those remind me of Alice-in-Wonderland sizes. With a HUGE bowl of cream and a HUGE spoon alongside - hee-hee!

  15. Were they fed steroids? I'm glad they were tasty too - that's always disappointing when they look that amazing and then taste like nothing!

  16. I saw you got them at Sam's Club and that they tasted good. I'll have to check it out, although I try to get strawberries as often as I can organic because of the whole pesticide thing. But Sam's are so reasonable and they always taste so good it just kills me to pass them up...and I usually don't. Looking at yours now, I'll probably go just to get some, and then try to get out of the store without spending a fortune on other things. It will be your fault otherwise! :)
