    No is the simple answer, I use it in emergencies as I like fruit in my porridge usually use half punnet raspberries but if I cant get them or run out I use the frozen, I dont like to eat the fruit on its own, its fine in a jelly etc but its pretty mushy when defrosted

    I don't like to eat them on their own, but it's fine for me in yogurt or porridge. I buy fresh fruit for snacks but also buy frozen for breakfasts.

    Fresh fruit is definelty nicer than frozen. I sometimes buy the frozen summer berries but they are abit mushy when defrosted. x

    I agree frozen is fine if you are putting it in something but goes dead mushy when defrosted so not really very nice to eat on it's own

    It does go dead mushy, it's fine if it's raspberries & blackberries, in my opinion. I defrost them and use on top of my cinnamon french toast (all the mush and juice comes out and tastes like a coulis), I also have it with plain yog and that flavours the yog nicely (with a wee teaspoon of sweetner. I really rather like frozen berries, but not for munching, unless frozen!

    I put frozen fruit (raspberries, blackberries, cherries and blueberries) into my tupperware just before I leave for work at 8ish and then at midday when I have lunch (after they've been in the fridge at work), they're still firm but defrosted! I really don't like frozen strawberries though - they go very mushy! Agree with the others - great on porridge, in yogurts or on a meringue nest with a dollop of 0% yogurt xxx

    I use loads of frozen fruit and berries, but I eat them frozen. I love all the different textures, and they take ages to eat, so I'm left feeling rally sated after a bowl. I love my frozen fruit salads with a wee dollop of free yogurt :)
