Yep. I get some strawberries in the spring from farmers who set up little stands on the side of the road, and those things are so freakin' good. Unlike anything you've every had from a conventional grocery store.

I'm with astro on olives. I really, really wish I could like them, but I just don't. They ruin anything they're in.
