Alaska Wild Berry Products

I’m revisiting this photo from a few years ago at Alaska Wild Berry Products in honor of #FriFotos on Twitter.  This week’s theme is ‘chocolate’ and Alaska Wild Berry Products is the perfect subject for such a theme.

Their Anchorage location has the world’s largest chocolate fall.  They even have huge chocolate bars you can use in your photos.  It’s a lot of fun.

Alaska Wild Berry Products has a long history in Alaska, starting in 1946 in Homer.  Eventually they ended up in Anchorage.  They went from selling jams and jellies, to selling candies, to selling chocolate covered candies, and now they have many more gift options too.  They have a lot of great souvenirs as well as amazing photo opportunities.  It’s a great place to visit if you make it to Anchorage.

All of that aside, I have a very personal reason for loving Alaska Wild Berry Products.  When we were growing up in Alaska my sister and I would pick wild berries and sell them to Alaska Wild Berry Products.  The only exception was blueberries.  Our mom would not let us sell them the blueberries, but being the savvy business girls that we were we made her pay us for them.  Sorry Mom…it’s all about the bottom line.
