I love these berries! I'd actually heard about them before but never really tried for other reasons and well I have to say now I am impressed I've been eating them a lot and putting them on everything since I first tried them I really like the flavour and as far as the product goes the bag presentation keeps them fresh and in good condition, they are tasty and I couldn't ask for better berries. 5/5 and buying again!
Basically these are too good. I could live on these. I did love the Happy Goji which were completely fresh but apparently she is only selling huge quantities now. So these are dried, but not as hard as other brands. They have these in Whole Foods so you can always buy them, try them and return if you don’t like them. They can be plumped by soaking them in a tiny bit of goji juice for an hour.
I use goji berries in my overnight oats, mixed into plain yogurt, and in smoothies. I enjoy the slightly chewy texture and the earthy, berry flavor. The 16oz bag will last you a very long time because you don't need more than a single tablespoon to get the flavor and antioxidants. The posted serving size of 3 tablespoons is absurd because that would be 13g of sugar and more vitamin A than your body needs, especially if you eat a varied diet and are getting vitamin A from other food sources. I'm on my 3rd bag from this brand and haven't had any issues with mold. I transfer mine into a clear, airtight container with a wide lid opening for ease of accessing; and I store in a closed pantry closet that isn't near the stove. It probably takes me a year to get through a bag and I haven't experienced problems. I will say that some batches are more firm (i.e. drier) than others. So there does seem to be variation in how dried out the berries are, but this doesn't bother me.
Another 'superfood'. All fruits and vegetables are superfoods - just have to eat more of them. We use these at my house by eating them plain or in a smoothie or with some bran flakes. They have a unique flavor so you would have to decide if you like the flavor or not. I generally don't like the flavor so I toss them in a smoothie and can't tell they are in there. Good packaging, freshness, arrived on time.
Fantastic little berries with lots of flavor and just the right amount of moisture in this product. The bag they come in keeps them fresh and moist. The seal is good but more than I wish to deal with so I just put mine in a pint jar and that works better. There was a lot said a few years ago about a problem they may or may not have had (could have been a customer issue as well). All I know is that they are fine now. Sweet and earthy tones and you can almost feel the health oozing from them.They are a little on the expensive side though, and I've since heard that they aren't too hard to grow. There's nothing special about berries grown in China, so this American is going to see what can be done here. They are supposed to be great container plants.
First time trying goji berries and was expecting a berry-like flavor. I was surprised to find that they have a more bitter and earthy flavor to them, but it grew on me quickly.The quality of the berries was excellent, and I did not experience any issues with mold or leaves being present, as others have mentioned.I eat them straight out of the bag to satisfy my snacking habits while getting a daily dose of antioxidants. I haven't yet tried incorporating them into other foods but I found some ideas on the Down To Earth website:1. Raw: First and foremost, eat them raw! A small handful a day will do.2. Juice: Goji berries are also available in juice form. Down to Earth carries 100% Goji Juice without any added sugar, or color.3. Tea: Goji berries can be used to brew in a tea. You can add a handful of goji berries to a big glass of hot or cold water (or herb tea) and let sit and hydrate for 5 to 10 minutes. They become plump and juicy. You can drink the tea and eat the hydrated berries which are loaded with antioxidants.4. Smoothies: Soak a handful of goji berries in water for 10 minutes. Once they are plump and juicy, add them to your favorite smoothie. It won’t make much of a change to the taste or consistency of your smoothie.5. Trail Mix: You can also add goji berries to your favorite trail mix. Or, make your own by mixing your favorite nuts and dried fruit with some goji berries. Kids like it when you add some chocolate or peanut butter chips to the goji trail mix.6. Cereal: Just like raisins, add some goji berries to your hot or cold cereals in the morning.Muffins and Scones: Add goji berries to muffins or scones just as you would raisins.7. Goji Energy Bars: Blend a handful of goji berries together with cup of walnuts, ½ cup almonds, and 5-6 dates in a food processor. Roll the mix into balls or spread in a deep pan to make bars.8. Add to Soups: This has been a common use of goji berries in Chinese cuisine for thousands of years.
I got this because of the moniker of "superfood" and have been surprised at how good a superfood can taste. They are chewy, not rubbery but very toothy. They are also fairly tart, not as much as a lemon but much more than a raisin or cranberry.I've mostly been putting this in green smoothies (mostly spinach, bananas, hemp hearts, flax seeds and coconut milk) and it helps to offset the earthy tastes with a bit of tang.I've contemplated putting these in my daughters lunch but have been concerned about how small and chewy they are (she tends to inhale foods she likes and this could be a choking hazard). I think I'll watch her and see how it goes.
This was my first purchase of this product and I didn't know what to expect. When they first arrived, I tried them plain and was surprised how they tasted... a berry flavor with a woody undertone. Needless to say, I used the bag sparingly. However, as I kept coming back to the product, I was surprised how I became accustomed to the taste. I was just snacking on them in the raw, sundried hard form. However, fast-forward many months later, I tried them in a oatmeal muffin mixture. Now I found the Goji Berry taste! Once they soaked moisture back up, they became soft and berry flavor - no more woodiness. It is now my new favorite thing is adding them to meals where they have the chance to rehydrate and become flavorful. I still eat them in the crunch form, but I have a bigger appreciation for them know that I know how to cook with them. Will buy again.
I have read where people have received dried out Goji's. I can say that this was not the case for me. They have a touch more moisture than a raisin. However, in my opinion, they are far more tasty and versatile, in addition to being an incredibly healthy item to consume. We use ours in a variety of things, from homemade trail mix to being mixed into our waffle batter to a salad topping, and finally, we use them in our green smoothies as well. I anticipate finding more uses for them, but for now, that is what we've tried. I would like to say also that 16 ounces of goji berries goes a long way. I thought we would have gone through the bag in two weeks, but a almost a month in, with daily use, for two people, we still have around half a bag. So, that falls in line with the recommended, one delivery every two months, for the subscribe and save subscription. Anyways, i highly recommend this product if you are attentive to your health at all, and for vegetarians/vegans (we are the latter), it's a must have for your kitchen.Enjoy!
