Melanie's Notes on Blueberries:
Freeze dried blueberries are the perfect blend of crunchy and sweet; what’s not to love?
The only problem is, there’s no hiding the fact that you’ve been snacking on them. After a handful of these, your tongue, teeth, and lips will be a beautiful shade of deep blueish-purpleish-blackish. But don’t worry – that’s all natural color right there. Wanna know how I know?

25 year shelf life.
I personally get the blueberries in the pantry can size, because I like them super fresh and crisp. This is one of those fruits that does get soft and chewy after being open for a few weeks, so if you’re not going to go through an entire number 10 can within a few weeks, I recommend ordering these in the pantry can size. It just depends on how quickly you’ll go through them.
