I must confess I have a Strawberry obsession.

Every time I spot those beautiful blushing red little poppers, I just couldn’t contain myself.

After years of searching for my dream strawberry…my dream finally came true in Japan.

Japan, known for their dedication in excellence (especially in food), has a high end luxury fruit industry.

Did you know one strawberry can worth as much as 50,000 yen ($445 USD)?!!!

Juicy, sweet, flavorful strawberries from Japan.

Luckily ours didn’t cost nearly as much.

I was still hesitant about the price tag at 1980 Yen (~$18 USD) for 9 strawberries. Yes, we picked a discounted one to save a few buck. 😛

But I know I would lose sleep over these strawberries if I don’t try it. So we did.

Oh my!! The balance of sweetness with a slight mix of tartness, bursting with strawberry juicy flavors and sweet-smelling aroma. I was totally mind-blown and yelled at Jacky with excited eyes – This! This is it!!

This is THE strawberry I’ve been looking for!

They were the juiciest, sweetest, most flavorful strawberries we have ever tasted. And mind you, these aren’t even the best in Japan.

Oh~ how I wish I can pop these everyday and make our Instant Pot Strawberry Compote with them!!

Though I would totally love to try a bite of the $445 strawberry some day! 😀
