Driscoll’s Just Released Its Rosé Berries—and We’re About to Rosé All Day
These delicate pink rosé berries taste like summer in a bowl.
Like a good glass of rosé wine, sweet, juicy strawberries and raspberries are a summer treat. So how delightful do rosé berries sound?
Driscoll’s rosé strawberries and raspberries are a limited-edition summer treasure that have a lovely light pink hue. We first saw the berries in 2019—and now they’re back for summer 2022.
What Do Rosé Berries Taste Like?
Driscoll’s rosé strawberries pop with a sweet-tart flavor that offers peach and pineapple aromas. If you like your strawberries on the juicy side, pour yourself a glass of these guys!
If rosé raspberries are more your style, these blushing berries showcase the colors of a sunrise—peach, rose, orange and yellow. And don’t expect the taste of a standard raspberry. These fruits deliver notes of peach, banana and other tropical flavors. You can even use them in berry recipes for a fun twist!
The rosé berries aren’t as red as traditional berries, but that doesn’t mean either of them are unripe. A natural mutation removes the presence of anthocyanin, which is what gives regular berries their red color. Driscoll’s says that they also have a shorter shelf life because they’re softer and more tender than regular raspberries and strawberries, so don’t feel guilty about gobbling them up quickly.
Here’s how to wash your berries before eating ’em.
Where Can I Get ‘Em?
Your local grocery store likely carries the rosé berries. Driscoll’s website lists national chains such as Costco, Whole Foods and Target, as well as more local chains like Lunds & Byerly’s, Fred Meyer, Safeway, Vons and Wegmans.
And if the rosé berries whet your appetite for more fancy summer fruit, there are plenty more to check out! Driscoll’s Tropical Bliss strawberries are a rich golden color, and carry notes of tropical punch, pineapple and passion fruit. And Driscoll’s Sweetest Batch strawberries are as red as Marilyn Monroe’s lipstick. They live up to their name, serving your sweet tooth by offering notes of strawberry candy and fruit punch.
Be sure to avoid these berry mistakes this summer!
