Rosé-Flavored Raspberries Are Here for Summer

June 20, 2019 - 8:06 am

Now you can have rosé all day - even when enjoying fresh fruit.

Driscoll’s has launched a new, limited-edition batch of rosé-flavored strawberries and raspberries to toast the beginning of the summer.

Created by the brand’s “agronomists, breeders, sensory analysts, plant health scientists, and entomologists,” the blush-colored berries were made to taste similar to a cold glass of the warm-weather-favorite wine.

Unfortunately, the berries do not actually contain rosé (or any alcohol for that matter), and they were made by combining light and dark berries that were “mixed with the power of the sun.”

And just so there’s no confusion, the company says the berries are not genetically modified at all and came together following years of research and development. 

“Rosé Berries get their beautiful light-pink hue from the non-GMO breeding methods used by Driscoll's Joy Makers," the company said in a press release. 

In addition, the berries have a “smooth, silky, creamy texture”  and contain a  “peachy flavor paired with a soft floral finish.” We’ll drink to that!

Now if you want to get your hands on Rosé Berries for your next soiree, you should know they will only be available until September and at a limited amount of retail outlets.   

If you’re in northern California, shoppers can pick them up in the produce section of Whole Foods, while East Coast fans can order them through Fresh Direct. Prices will vary depending on where you purchase them.

Also, don’t forget to enjoy the berries with a bottle or two of your favorite rosé. Cheers!
