I love love LOVE these delicious
Very good. Nice sweet berry.
I had never tried the Golden Berries before, but after I saw them on the Dr. Oz show for being high in Antioxidants, Vitamin A, and Bioflavonoids, I wanted to try them. They are very tasty -- tart and sweet. I am happy with my purchase and will buy more in the future! I also received super service and quick shipment from Lucky Vitamin!
very good product will order again, just a little pricey compare to other's
They are a bit tart - kind of like those sour straw candies the kids like. However, it's the best price around.
Many vitamin and drug companies do not carry these. I was happy with my purchase.
Great for afternoon snack -- with or without almonds and chocolate!
Love these...I now "crave" them! So nutritious...chewy-sweet-tart combo hits the spot. A great vitamin C- rich alternative snack to travel with rather than anything sugary...you won't even miss it.
I have had these berries in the past and I will get them again. They work great as a snack when I am on the run or watching tv late at night. (They are already gone!)
I love theses tart Golden Berries.They are good for you and so Tarte.
It's a great between meal snack. A little tart. I eat it everyday. It's satisfies the urge when
you don't want a meal.
These are incredibly different! If you like a tangy fruit taste you will love these. They are also very good for you! Give them a try! Great trail snack!
Great source of fiber. Love the tart taste.
Great healthy snack and good price.
these are really tangy, and a bit like sour gummi worms in flavor, or at least they are if you are used to a low sugar diet. I like them for snacking, though only a few at a time.
These are a delicious, tart, healthy addition to oatmeal or granola in the morning, at a good price! My husband's new favorite dried fruit!
I like it. It is very tasty.
