Fruit Bouquet by 1-800-Flowers (A Review)

Last Saturday afternoon, there was a knock on my door and I opened it to find a “Cup of Cheer” Fruit Bouquet!  Fruit Bouquets by 1800Flowers offered to send me one of their beautiful fruit arrangments to enjoy and review.  A bunch of fresh fruit with a little bit of chocolate…how could I say no? 😉

All smiles for my cup of cheer (and my sweet tie-dye shirt)!

If you haven’t been lucky enough to receive one of these yet, here is a little background information right from the source:

Melons and Berries and Grapes, Oh My!

So did my Cup of Cheer measure up to these great expectations?  Absolutely!

The fruit was fresh and came in nice big hand-carved pieces.  I’m not usually a fan of sending or receiving actual flowers because they die too quickly, so the pineapple flower design is perfect in these arrangements.  And let me tell you, they really pack a lot of fruit into that little coffee cup!  So much that I had enough to snack on for a few days, even after sharing with boyfriend and friends!  There was a good variety of fruits (apples, cantelope, honeydew, grapes, pineapple and strawberries) and just the right amount of chocolate-dipped ones!  Honestly, my only criticism would be that the chocolate dipped fruit only came in milk or white chocolate.  I’d love to see some dark chocolate pieces in there, as dark chocolate is my favorite!!!

For the purposes of doing a comprehensive review, I clicked over to the Fruit Bouquet website to check out their other arrangement options.  I really like that they have different choices for whatever price point you need and they offer seasonal and themed bouquets.  Seriously, go check out how adorable the chocolate-covered strawberry footballs are!  You can also send boxes of just chocolate-covered fruit, including blueberries, grapes, apples, pears and even apricots!  Another interesting product that stood out to me was their Belgian Chocolate Covered Jalapenos.  Sounds amazing! 

I’ll absolutely be sending some fruit bouquets for friends and family in the future!  And if you happen to be looking for a gift for me…chocolate-covered anything will be much appreciated! 🙂 

So tell me…have you ever sent or received a fruit bouquet? Would you enjoy one as gift?

  1. They used to have a bouquet that had pineapples cut into Mickey shapes……good for a couple of people I can think of, I’m just sayin

  2. Horrible experience all around. No confirmation of order, no confirmation of delivery, I asked for delivery after 2:30 pm and they (supposedly) delivered at 1 pm.
    Do not give these crooks your business

  3. I went online and found this company in early December and decided to use them for Christmas orders. I placed an order for the “Decadent Strawberries” 12ct under the “love and romance” section to send to my significant other =^}… and let me just tell you how amazing of a gift this is! The company was on point with confirmation emails every step of the way…although the product was delivered two hours late! However, the quality surely made up for the late arrival! When the chocolate covered strawberries arrived I had my friend send me a picture and they looked fantastic! They were packaged neatly in a cute container, covered in white,milk, and dark chocolate, attached to the stem, and were huge! They looked even better than they did in the picture on the website! I would recommend this gift to anyone! Amazing quality, decent price, all around fantastic gift…and great customer service as well!
