Review - Edible Arrangements: A Decadent and Healthful Holiday Gift Idea


Edible ArrangementsThe holiday season is usually your waistline.  All of those delicious Christmas cookies, cakes and other snacks lurking at every gathering wreak havoc on your figure.  But it doesn't have to be that way!

Edible Arrangements has a delectable way to garnish any occasion with a healthful selection of perfectly ripened fruit. Their holiday arrangements are the perfect accent to any party, office shindig or other function this season.

I reviewed the Merry Gingerbread Men Festival (Regular Size) from Edible Arrangements, which retails for $98.00.

Savor the Sweetness of the Season with Edible Arrangements

A sweet and delicious display of gingerbread men makes this a perfect holiday gift, centerpiece, or dessert!  The Merry Gingerbread Men Festival fruit bouquet features gingerbread men-shaped pineapple dipped in gourmet semisweet chocolate, and is filled with fresh orange slices, strawberries, cantaloupe, honeydew and grapes.

Having the Merry Gingerbread Men Festival arrive on my doorstep was a great way to begin the day!  The fruit included in this particular bouquet was juicy and simply delicious.  There's nothing quite like the taste of super fresh fruit and before I knew it, my family had basically devoured this basket and pretty much made it our dinner for the night.

Riley and I were partial to the strawberries and the oranges, while my husband loved the two types of melon included.  We all loved the grapes and eating them off of the swizzle sticks made it even more fun.  I was especially impressed by how delicious the chocolate used to dip the fruit was.  Although I have to admit that I didn't exactly like the chocolate-dipped pineapple men, I loved both the pineapple wedges and the chocolate itself.  I just wasn't a fan of the combination.

If you're looking for a merry, yet healthy, way to celebrate the holidays, then be sure to bring a fun and fruitful bouquet to the party from Edible Arrangements.
