This is probably more commonly known as 'Blueberry Buckle', but since Rich's grandma told me what they used to call it, I've enjoyed using the name 'Blueberry Boy Bait'. I have to say it would work quite well as 'bait' too...well, maybe more of a 'bribe'. Being it is one of Blake's favorite foods, I'm pretty sure I can get him to do pretty much anything for this blueberry treat! Maybe I should call is 'Blueberry Boy Bribe'? ;-)
