The big hitting berries.   

It's Eubank v Benn all over again.   

Pick your winner but absolutely no eating as you pick your berries.   Turn up at the checkout with red chops and you won't be allowed back.

I like raspberry-flavoured stuff (jam, sweets etc) better than strawberry-flavoured stuff but I prefer to eat fresh strawberries over fresh raspberries.

 

Get off the fence!

Strawberries, texture, more substantial. A man's berry.

Memories of getting up at some ridiculous time to catch one of the berry buses during school summer holidays. Picking rasps was a lot easier but more of a mess than strawberries. Plus you could pish in the bucket to add to the weight. Strawberry picking paid more but was back breaking and the incentive of earning more money was hampered by eating 1 for every 2 or 3 that went in the punnet. Think only went 2 or 3 times as preferred sleeping in.

If Prince had sung about a girl wearing a strawberry beret we would have laughed him out of town.

Raspberry Switchblade doesn't have the same ring to it either.

On the issue at hand, strawberries are more reliable as I once found a wee larva thing in the hole of a hulled rasp. They're too delicate as well. If the punnet has to be lined with bubble wrap then you know you're in for a sloppy experience (anyone seen Kenneth?)

Since lockdown started I have a smoothie as part of my lunch everyday, it will contain strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, bananas and (sometimes) blackberries. It is delicious, and both those wonderful red berries play a huge part in making it what it is.

Raspberry jam is better than strawberry jam though, so on that basis, I've chosen Raspberry.

I prefer eating strawberries to raspberries, but raspberry jam is the king of jams.  Tough choice.
