Can't freeze strawberries and not have them weep when they defrost.........

I'd think that the only good way to do it is overnight delivery. I wouldn't pay for it as a customer, though. Too easy to find them locally or make myself. I love my family in NH, too, but not enough to spend that kind of $$ $$$$$ on shipping.

Ditto. And yes dry ice will destroy the berries.

Actually, Alton Brown demonstrates how to freeze berries with dry ice, start at 2:55.

Great info, but I don't see shipping companies following all of those instructions................and he never really addresses what happens to the berries once they fully come to room temp....or how chocolate on the berries would be affected by the freezing & defrosting.

He ate some at the end? They were almost perfect berries.

But that's true, it's late and I forgot these were chocolate covered berries the OP was asking about - not quite sure how you'd toss those in dry ice to make that work icon_biggrin.gif
