Driscoll’s Season’s Finest Giveaway

The other day I told you guys that when you sign up for Driscoll's emails, you get a $0.50/1 coupon good on any of the delicious berries that Driscoll's offer.

Well I just found out that Driscoll's offer limited edition, "Season's Finest" berries. They are indeed the "Season's Finest" because they are larger than normal, are noticeably more red and definitely sweeter - all because nature provided the perfect growing conditions.

These limited quantity jewels are available at Kroger locally in the cities below and will be available for just about five more weeks.

  • Dallas - Kroger SW
  • Houston - Kroger SW
  • Denver - Kroger King Soopers
  • Seattle - Kroger - QFC
  • Cincinnati -Kroger Shelbyville (Cincinnati)
  • Detroit - Kroger Columbus (Detroit)
  • Wichita - Kroger Dillon's
  • Topeka, KS - Kroger Dillon's

Fresh, juicy and wholesome - a delightful experience from Driscoll's Farmers to your table. They are easy to spot too with an eye-catching purple label.

I don't know about you guys, but berries are a must have at my house!  We use them to make everything from main dishes, smoothies, muffins, pancakes and even just plain as a snack!   This is one of my favorite times of the year, berries are a great price! I do a lot of cooking with berries and other fruits so I love to be able to bring out some of my favorite recipes while the price is right!!

Driscoll's berries are currently 2/$5 at Kroger which is a great price but... I think FREE is even better! The folks at Driscoll's are giving FIVE I Heart Kroger readers a coupon for $5 off Driscoll's products.

    Strawberry shortcake,Grandmommie’s strawberry cake, and chocolate dipped berries!
    As someone in the food business, I agree totally…Driscoll’s are the best!

  2. Megan O says

    I love strawberry shortcake made with homemade biscuits! oh an whipped cream on top. :o)

  3. Pam says

    My favorite is all different kinds of berries on top of cheesecake. Also love to cube pound cake and layer with strawberries and vanilla pudding. All berries anytime are just wonderful!!!

  4. Nikki E says

    I’m sure Driscolls has tons of great recipes, but our favorite thing to do is purchase blue berries and put them in our pancakes. Instead of stirring them in, after you place your batter on the skillet, you just drop them right on top and then flip when ready. They burst in your mouth and are delicious!

  5. Joe says

    Any berry makes a great sauce; 1 quart of berries 1/4c sugar 1T lemon juice, whirl in a food processor and push through a mesh strainer to get the seeds out. I love raspberry sauce on cheesecake, strawberry on poundcake and blueberry on vanilla ice cream. It only takes 10 minutes to make a great sauce that will make a wonderful dessert look like a 5-star restaurant.

    Also, I have nothing but goos things to say about berry sorbet, so definitely think of that on those hot summer days.

  6. Jessica says

    I love to take Discoll’s berries and mix them with either Vanilla or Strawberry yogurt and granola for my own homemade fruit and yogurt parfait!

  7. jennifer sadler says

    the kids just eat the strawberries plain. the container doesnt last 15 minutes after i come home from the store. i introduced them to whip cream the last time i bought them, now the bottom of the container is found in record time! i should really make iheartkroger my home page because i check it every couple of minutes for good deals. thanks for your hard work.

  8. Elizabeth says

    The best strawberry recipe other than strawberry shortcake is blueberry muffins with strawberries cooked in the middle (homemade jam)

  9. Loretta says

    Strawberry pie made with berries sugar cornstarch and jello topped with wipped cream. Yum Yum. I had some on Monday night at my moms.

  10. Christy H. says

    I make a wonderful, simple fruit dip which is one brick of cream cheese (softened) mixed with one jar of Marshmellow fluff. We love to dip strawberries (or any other fruit) in the dip!!

  11. says

    My favorite thing about berries is making smoothies! I’m pregnant more often than not, and making smoothies is a great, quick way for me to start my mornings before running around with the kids and making my daily trip to Kroger. Driscoll berries are my favorite because they don’t rot as quickly as other brands, and they’re the perfect size! My favorite smoothie recipe calls for:

    1/2 cup cut, frozen strawberries
    1/2 cup blueberries
    2 teaspoons agave nectar
    1 teaspoon ground flax seeds
    1/2 cup Greek yogurt.
    1/2 a frozen banana.

    I just mix everything up in the blender, and it’s a great breakfast for my kids and me!

  12. says

    My favorite recipe is a smoothie with strawberries. I use 1/2 frozen banana, about 5 good sized strawberries, 1 cup of yogurt, 2 oz of pomegranate juice…delicious!

  13. erin says

    Oh, how I wish we had those “Season’s Finest” in my city! I see quite a few of your readers love strawberry shortcake, that’s my favorite use for strawberries too. I use the easy Bisquick shortcake recipe when I want to make it quickly:
    2 1/3 c. Bisquick
    1/2 c. milk
    4 tbsp. sugar
    3 tbsp. butter, melted
    2 tbsp. sugar (for sprinkling on top)

    Mix first 4 ingredients, pour into greased square pan or muffin tray. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake at 425 degrees 10 to 20 minutes, cool and cut. Makes 9 servings.

  14. Brook says

    I like to put fresh berries on yogurt with a crushed up nature valley granola bar on top. yummy little lunch or snack.

  15. Carolyn says

    my kids really love strawberries cut up and sprinkled with sugar topped with whipped cream. Sometimes I’ll even get a little fancy and make a creme anglais to go with the berries :)

  16. Jessica Pumfrey says

    I make these wonderful strawberry muffins, my family cannot get enough of them.

  17. Darci says

    my fave recipe is homemade raspberry ice cream (or strawberry)! sooo yummy
    thanks for the great giveaway!

  18. Cheryl says

    1 cup of Kroger non-fat vanilla yogurt, handful of fresh strawberries, scoop of frozen strawberries & blue berriers and some cubes of ice make an amazing smoothy!

  19. Lisa Kiddy says

    Our family favorite receipe is the Mixed Berry Barbeque Chicken Skewers! I hope the weather continues to warm up so we can start grilling again!!!

  20. Stacey says

    We make a blueberry cherry crisp with driscoll blueberries. It is excellent. If I win we’ll be making some! Thanks for the chance!

  21. Cheryl Bowman says

    I personally think berries are best eaten with just a good washing and a little bit of sugar! Why mess with what is already perfect as is?

  22. Angela says

    Fresh Strawberry Pie with homemade graham cracker crust and homemade whipped cream! Yum! I’ve made two of these in the last two weeks! :)

  23. Rebecca says

    I LOVE to cut up fresh strawberries, sprinkle them with a little sugar and let them sit for a few hours. Then have them over ice cream, pancakes, shortcake, or crepes! :)

  24. kriszta says

    my daughter loves strawberries, she eats plain or with whip cream.
    i also make raspberry or blueberry yogurt muffins, sooo good.
    or make lemonade with strawberry pieces in it. there are so many ways for berries. we love berries all together, especially cheap. :)

  25. Andrea says

    My son has eaten strawberries everyday for lunch for the past 5 years. I mean everyday!! However, we love them best with coolwhip.

  26. says

    My favorite recipe is just a plain and simple strawberry shortcake, with fresh strawberries, angel food cake, and whipped cream – yummy!!!

  27. TanyaW says

    I love to puree strawberries with sugar and use it with chopped berries on pancakes, ice cream, etc
