Blueberries are usually quite mild in taste. I've been buying blueberries whenever there's any promo and freezing them. I use them for my yoghurt, salads and baking. Hardly to eat them as is.

I bought from ntuc $3.95 per box. Two layers only. So I scrutinized them before buying. So far down 5-6 boxes for past 3 weeks.

Yes Korea ones.

I have trouble choosing blue Berries. Mouldy.

The korean ones, must choose whole surface red or those with whitish top are also sweet?

Did not see much grapes.

The Joy premium Fuji apples are good. Comes in packs of 3.

The last time I bought the Finest premium plums, they are good. Did not see them again the last 2-3 weeks but say them again today. Just bought a box but yet to eat them so not sure if they are as good.
