 Fun Fact 
Not only are blueberries delicious, they also have a number of health benefits! They are high in anti-oxidants and are an excellent source of iron and vitamin C. In fact, in comparison with 40 fresh fruits and vegetables, the U.S. Department of Agriculture ranks blueberries #1 in anti-oxidant benefits. It has 2 times the anti-oxidant capacity of spinach and 3 times that of oranges.
