Nutritional values

Strawberries are packed with vitamin C, which supports the immune system and cell protection, while dark chocolate contributes a considerable amount of fiber and antioxidants. 

Buy organic strawberries. Conventional products, especially in the early season, often contain high levels of harmful substances like pesticides or fertiliser residues.
