sign in grocery store for USA strawberries

So, this picture is ridiculously blurry, but the security guard was none too keen on me taking pictures, so I only got one chance. You will have to take my word for it that it says “Strawberries USA.” 9.90 Dhs is about $2.70 for a pint. So, what does a pint of strawberries go for in September in the States?

We did not buy any. Even in the states the berries in the grocery stores are pretty tasteless due to being picked before they are fully ripe. Just imagine what they taste like after being shipped halfway around the world. Some aspects of globalization should be skipped altogether.
