​NEW IN THE CHOCOLATE ROOM.

BLUEBERRY MUFFIN MIX. A jar of my blueberry muffin mix makes 12 – 2″ blueberry muffins or 6 – 4″ muffins. Everything is in the jar, including the blueberries! You just add water. Have you ever read the ingredients on supermarket blueberry products? Most contain no blueberries at all! Pillsbury’s Blueberry Muffin Mix says on the front of the package ‘imitation blueberries, artificially flavored.’ I don’t know what their imitation blueberries are made out of. The ingredients list on the back of the package contains a long list of chemicals. I don’t know what these chemicals are or what they do, but there are no blueberries on the list. Smucker’s Blueberry Waffles contain ‘flavored blueberry bits’, but blueberries are definitely not one of the ingredients in Smucker’s ‘flavored blueberry bits.’ Other products I found at Safeway that contain no blueberries: Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix, Kellogg’s Blueberry Cereal Bars, and Jiffy Blueberry Muffin Mix. Some packages of Betty Crocker’s Blueberry Muffin Mix did contain blueberries, but other did not. You have to read the ingredients label with that brand. Safeway also had blueberry pies, blueberry tarts, and blueberry yogurt with no blueberries in them. All of these products had pictures of the product on the front of the package, and you can clearly see what appear to be real blueberries. Look at the picture below of Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix. They certainly look like real blueberries, don’t they? I understand why food processors use imitation blueberries. Real blueberries are expensive. Fake blueberries are cheap. Duh. My blueberry muffin mix contains real blueberries from Quebec. No fake blueberries. No imitation blueberry flavor. No blue food color. The blueberries from Quebec tasted the best of all the ones I sampled. Why not give it a try?
