Sunshine Raspberries

One of the most fantastic treats of the summer season is all the berries at your fingertips. This summer is extra exciting with the introduction of Sunshine raspberries. These raspberries grown by under the Driscoll’s label are a combination of red and golden raspberries. They are a beautiful berries contains hues of both red and yellow. They have a unique flavor of their own, not quite like a traditional red raspberry, and different from a golden one. The ones I had were pretty large in size and were sweet enough to not need any additional sugar (or honey which I like to put on berries).

Since these berries are new to the market place, finding them won’t be an easy task. The only place I know right now that is selling them is Plum Market in Ann Arbor, Michigan. If you have seem them in any other stores, please leave a comment below, along with your thoughts on this new raspberry.

Also I want to point out that there is a code on the bottom of the package. If you enter that code into their website ( you can trace exactly what farm the berries came from.

    I tried these raspberries today and thought they tasted exactly like regular red rasberries. Very delicious, but only differed in color not taste in my opinion. They seemed less juicy though, which was a bit disappointing because I like to mix juicy berries into cottage cheese.

    I was at chuck’s produce in salmon creek, wash. Today and bought some to try. They are really fantastic! What a great snack!

    I thought these were delicious – no sugar or other sweetener needed. I do believe there is a difference between the red and golden raspberries and then the golden raspberry. I hope I can find these in my local market again. Would definitely recommend.

    Glad to hear that you found them. I have not seen them since I originally wrote this post back in 2011!
