Would you spend over twenty bucks for ten strawberries? I didn’t think I would either until I saw the Japanese strawberries at our local Tokyo Central market. I saw the display of the beautiful, fragrant, perfect fruit and just had to get some. I know it is indulgent, and I debated the extravagant purchase until my amazing Hubby said we should just do it. If we were in Tokyo, these berries would have been double the price – fruit is super spendy there. So, how good is a twenty dollar strawberry? Pretty frickin amazing! Would I buy them again? Probably not but I’m glad I finally got to try them. Sometimes the taste is worth the splurge. Cheers!
