Kiwi Berries (Surprising find at Sam’s)

Kiwi berries; basically a grape sized kiwi that you can eat whole and tastes amazing. I have never seen these before except while in Hong Kong. Now I suddenly found them here in New Orleans, but NOT in Whole Foods or some other gourmet grocery store. I got these from Sam’s! It amazing what you find in this big box shop… Oh, and of course they were a great price too.

But like most of the good things the FedUp team discovers at Sam’s, these too are seasonal. As suddenly as we found them, the were gone. We had one glorious weekend of munching on these. But by the following Saturday, these little wonders that were carefully created in some food genetics lab were suddenly gone. Sad times.

If you come across them, look for the softer berries, they are the sweetest. And make sure to stock up.

    Interesting… never heard of these! We shop at Sam’s for bulk cheeses and yogurts for our boys and have never come across these. We have purchased regular old kiwis from Sam’s before. Perhaps it is a local treat only your Sam’s brought in? We’ll keep an eye out for them!

      It was a “seasonal item.” Like half of Sam’s stuff is. I have not seen them recently though. But I am sure next year they will show up again.
