The Fruit Company Has Your Date Night Covered

This post is the opinion of the Experimental Mommy.  While a sample was received to facilitate this review, all opinions remain 100% mine.

My husband and I have been married for thirteen years now.  Because we met in 6th grade and started dating as Seniors in High School, it can sometimes be hard to keep the relationship “fresh.”  Living here in New Orleans, there is no shortage of romantic places to rekindle a love affair with your sweetheart.

The New Orleans City Park is a 1,300 acre outdoor oasis with activities such as boating, hiking, mini golf, tennis, and so much more.  On my to-do list is to have a romantic picnic with my husband underneath the majestic oak trees in City Park.  The secret to a successful picnic is all in the basket!  Fortunately, The Fruit Company has you covered.

The Fruit Company has emerged as the leading online retailer of high quality orchard fresh fruit and gourmet gifts. Through ecological orchard management methods, agricultural water conservation, and environmentally friendly packaging and shipping materials, The Fruit Company leads the way in its commitment to sustainability practices.  As one of Oregon’s Top 15 growing companies and part of Internet Retailer’s Top 50 “Best of Web”, the Fruit Company continues its growth track.

The Fruit Company was nice enough to send me their popular Summer Picnic Basket filled with everything I need to surprise hubby with a special day together.  The wicker basket contains beef summer sausage, TouVelle cheese, key lime ginger mustard, Sheffield Harvest Crush Cider, chocolate ganache brownie, sun-kissed apples, pears and more.

When the basket arrived, I was very impressed with how beautiful the actual basket was presented.  The handle and buckles will make for easy transport and cleanup.  The food was kept fresh with included ice packs and the fruit was safe due to excellent packaging.  I absolutely love the dishes and utensils included in the gift set.  I literally have to bring nothing!

This Summer Picnic Basket retails for $139.95 but there are so many more options at The Fruit Company.  Take a look at their selection (I live the tower gift sets) which would be great to bookmark for the holidays.
