Once you open the pouch, you can immediately smell the goji berries. My husband eats it out of the bag like a snack and it tastes very sweet. It is a well worthy buy. You can make chinese style soup with it, here's how: -1/2 cup soaked black beans(discard water) -10pcs goji berries -5pcs red dates (without the seed, it will not be heaty) -5cloves of garlic(deskinned and whole) -salt to taste Place all ingredients in boiling water and simmer for 45mins at medium heat. Tasty soup :)

These gojis are very dry, but a little soaking makes them wonderful. I love that these ones are organic.

Thes goji berries are good! After all, they're organic and raw and stuffed with all these good vitamins! The only negative I have to say is that these are hard! So I always have to soak them, to make digestion easier (I once finished a bag of these in three days - my stomach was not happy, I tell ya'!). Then I use them in chocolate bars, smoothie, on top of oatmeal, fruit or vegetable salads.

There are better alternatives out there. These are just too dry and "plain" for my taste.

I bought it since people said it is very good in nutritions. I've used it for topping on chia seeds pudding and some other raw dishes. It tastes a bit sour (esp. if it is not reconstituted well...

I think goji berries smell and taste strange. Maby it takes time to get used to.

Organic and sun-dried they are, but extremely dry and hard. I´ve tried many brands and know this can be a challenge- finding gojis that are softer that is, but sadly these are far from that mark. Too bad, because the price is so reasonable. I prefer to skip the hassle of putting them in water or juice first to soften them up- but now I have to. Oh well...
