~~~Dark chocolate covered strawberries
The strawberry originated in Europe in the 18th century.
Strawberries are bright red in color, have a juicy texture, a characteristic aroma, and a sweet flavor.
They are an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese, and also contain decent amounts of folate (B9) and potassium.
Strawberries are very rich in antioxidants and plant compounds, and may have benefits for heart health and blood sugar control.
They are usually consumed raw and fresh, but can also be used in a variety of jams, jellies, desserts, and for food flavoring.
Strawberries mainly consist of water (91%) and carbohydrates (7.7%). They contain only minor amounts of fat (0.3%) and protein (0.7%).
One cup of whole strawberries (150 grams) contains less than 50 calories.
Not only do they taste great, they are ranked high in health-promoting antioxidants. There is nothing like a juicy red strawberry just picked from a U-pick field! Eat strawberries at least once a week.
