I would say a majority of commercially manufactured baked goods use these "fake berries" I have seen them in everything from cereal, muffins, donuts, and bagels.

I'm a pretty dedicated label reader, and I almost always read the ingredient list of anything new I want to try, so I knew this. I do wish they were more clear in their advertising and on the front of the packages.

Saskatoon berries are from Canada (not sure if any are grown elsewhere?).

Ah, I just checked and they are grown in the U.S. as well. Amelanchier alnifolia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

a very long time ago, alix spoke fondly of saskatoon berries, but in the same breath (and in odd way) mentioned that they were smaller and not as sweet as blueberries.

so, as not to miss the chance to tease a canuck, i've made it a running joke about how canadians love inferior blueberries and don't know any better.



sorry for the inside joke.

I couldn't remember the exact joke, so I figured it was best to wait for you to explain that part!!
