Summertime is one of the most popular times to enjoy fruits at family picnics, quick snacks, and also great to have on hand for any meal.
Frozen fruit plays in that same field but also is readily available for baking and your morning smoothie. Before you pull out the blender take a look to see if your frozen berries are the Great Value brand sold at Walmart. If so, STOP!
