Navitas Naturals Organic Mulberries -- 8 oz
I tried this product first from a local store and really liked the berries. They were fresh tasting and soft. I promptly placed an order through Vitacost for 4 more bags. I was SO disappointed with the first 2 bags. The berries were hard and crunchy and a good many of them had a moldy mildew taste. I was very bummed, but didn't want to go through the hassle of returning them. It's a pain in the butt to return items.
I just decided I wouldn't be buying these anymore since you never know the quality you will get with these berries. I had a similar experience when buying the berries from the bulk bin at our local health food store. There were loads of moldy tasting berries. Due to my experience from 2 different sources of moldy tasting berries, that's why I decided as well not to bother with returning them to vitacost. Obviously this must be a problem inherent with this product.
Incidentally, this 3rd bag we've now opened is fine. The berries are soft and no mildew taste. When the mulberries are good, they are very good, but when you get a "bad" bag, well, it ruins your taste for them. I'd love to recommend this product, but can't really. Let's just say you've been warned. Hopefully you'll get one of the good bags if you do order them.

I'm new to mulberries, but these are fabulous. Taste great eaten whole or in smoothies. I don't know all the positive effects yet as I'm also new to Chia seeds, but my energy has definitely improved.

Good berries, but too dry
great quality, but so dry that the berries are all crumbled and are not whole. they are not moist at all.
