Advantages: Very very few calories in a handful, and really tasty too
Disadvantages: Er...seeds get caught in your teeth...? Oh and sometimes a bit pricey!
I'm currently trying to lose weight, and so obviously decided to include more fruit in my diet. However, I'm really trying to restrict my calorie uptake, and so was looking for fruit with very little calories; these are perfect!
In 100g (About half of quite a large box; so for snacking I tend to only eat c.30g!) there are just 32 calories! Compare this the an apple- a standard Granny Smith apple there are around 80 calories. Plus these blueberries taste amazing!
Sometimes blueberries can be quite bland, but these vary between tangy and sweet, but overall its a great taste.
I have also tried Morrisons blueberries, and I can honestly say Tescos' taste much much better! Morrisons' are watery, rather tasteless and from Holland; whereas Tescos' are produced in the UK, thus better for the environment in terms of carbon emissions from transporting.
The prices, however, are a quite different. The box of 200g at Tesco was £2.35, but at Morrisons - it may just be a current special offer - a slightly smaller box was £1!
To conclude, these Tescos blueberries are sooo tasty and fantastic for snacking when on a diet. Try them!!!
