It’s always been about sneaking the peas into the mashed potatoes, but these days, parents of picky eaters can turn to things like Cotton Candy Grapes to ensure their kids eat some fruit. Even some adults rely on the candy-flavored fruit to ensure they get their five servings.
Perhaps that’s why Driscoll’s just debuted rosé berries, a new breed of light pink strawberries and raspberries that taste like rosé. Your mid-afternoon berry snack is now your rosé-hour fix.
Purposefully buying light pink berries with the flavor profile of an alcoholic beverage seems counter-intuitive. After all, the darker the berry the sweeter the juice and produce past their prime tend to take on the taste of alcohol. But these rosé berries were created with sweetness in mind and claim to taste like peaches, with a rosé twist.
Through traditional breeding methods (in other words, these gems are GMO-free), rosé berries have a “smooth, silky, creamy texture,” that packs the “peachy-floral” aromas of a good and dry rosé. The raspberries are a cross-breed of golden and red raspberries.
Home cooks, think of the possibilities: a blush-tinted rosé raspberry jam, a huge summer tart brimming with rosé strawberry slices, rosé strawberry shortcake – the rosé possibilities are endless.
