My kids love to snack on frozen whole organic blueberries right out of the freezer. We buy it by the 10 pound case at the local co-op, and it is common to find them at a reasonable price here in Maine. I like them, too, but instead I typicallly use organic freeze dried fruit powders such as pomegranate, goji, acai and camu (Navitas) in smoothies, as opposed to frozen whole fruit. Freeze drying maintains the integrity of the berry, too.
