Are you surprised? I ate blueberry oatmeal this morning (the kind in the little packet that you add water to). Now, I know a blueberry when I see one and those were NOT blueberries.
It shouldn't be surprising. Blueberries are pretty expensive. Of course companies are going to save money any way they can.

I would only be upset if the ingredients list stated that there were real blueberries and there wren't. I don't assume that the labels on many foods are fully honest or accurate but I do expect the ingredients list to be accurate.
I'm not surprised, but I should show this to DH who seems to take packaging claims at face value. Thanks for sharing.
This is simply fraud.
Blueberry bits should be bits of blueberries. Blueberry-flavored bits can be anything, but it still should be flavored with real blueberries.
