Gigantic Blackberries


I bought a package of blackberries at Sam's Club today.
Wow!  They were from Guatemala.  They sure know how to grow
them over there!  Seriously...I thought about putting them in muffins, but
one berry would take up the whole muffin cup! ha.



In fact, they're too big to pop into your mouth!
And yeah, I looked for a face but didn't see one! ha.

      The berries are really juicy, though. And you're right...sometimes the smaller ones have the best taste!

    2. Are you going to just eat them or use them somehow?

      Delete
    3. I'm not sure! We'll probably just eat them since I have a birthday cake in the oven and probably won't need a pie or something else. Maybe in yogurt for breakfast. Yum.

  4. Wow those suckers are large
    They sure know how to grow them on their barge
    And not a single face
    I guess Boo can't save Blueberry Face and send him into outer space haha

    1. A face would have been funny
      but y'all would have known I was crazy.
      Or maybe you already do
      and are just to polite to tell me the truth.
      hahahaha

      If I find a face tomorrow I'll let you know
      Then Boo can send him to the galazy show.
      ha.

    2. haha a sequel would be grand
      Well you do have 14 cats in your land
      So the crazy cat lady might come due
      But I won't tell on you

      Then again
      Like you showed me at my den
      If you find a famous face
      You could sell it at that ebay place
      And get tons of dough
      Maybe Elvis or Santa will show

    1. Too bad I don't have some kind of cupcake order, because they would be gorgeous having one sitting atop some fluffy frosting, don't you think?

  9. OMG! Unbelievable
    I was looking for some to make sloe gin with - these would be ace!

  10. Those are the biggest ones I have ever seen. Although if they are not sweet then I might like to get the smaller ones but I guess if you mix them into a smoothie or with yogurt then it would not matter. I think I am going to have to snack on some of those dried cherries Hubby bought.

    God bless.
