Love Fruit? How About A Box of Fresh Pears (Giveaway)?

Harry & David Royal Riviera Pears

December 27, 2011   359 Comments

Snack Girl had stopped doing giveaways because she did a survey and readers didn't love them. And, then she got an offer from Harry & David.

They sent me a box of Royal Riviera Pears and then asked me if I wanted to give some away. Sheesh! How nice is that to get a box of lovely pears?

Yes, dear readers, I can be bought with $30 of fresh fruit delivered to my door. And if anyone is wondering (like my neighbors) - no, there aren't any left :)

Now, I realize that $30 for five pounds of fresh pears is a bit steep for most of us. But, we are all trying to lose weight and one great way to do that is to elevate the fruit we eat to the level of dessert.

Alice Waters, a famous chef in Berkeley, likes to serve a perfect fresh peach for dessert in her restaurant. Many of us are going to wonder what happened to the chocolate - but once you have tried one of these peaches, you are forever altered.

I used to spend serious $$$ on fruit from the Embarcadero Farmers Market in San Francisco. I never liked strawberries until I spent $5 on a small box that were fresh and bursting with flavor. I thought all strawberries tasted like styrofoam until I tasted these jewels.

Harry & David offers a Fruit of the Month Club for 3-, 6-, 9- or 12-months.  You get to have high quality, delicious and seasonal fruit delivered right to your door. There are also light options for smaller families and singles, as well as organic and vegetable options.

So, they do all the work of finding the loveliest fruit they can and then you just get a box of it on your doorstep. Yes, it is pricey, but if you are trying to eat healthy and you have the dough - why not do it?

My all time, swoon-worthy favorite fruit is figs. Where I live they are expensive and hard to find, but you only need one to satisfy a sweet tooth.

There is nothing better than biting in to a ripe juicy pear (or apple, or peach). My mouth just watered thinking about it! *SWOON*

Since I have become a master juicer, fruit has become my best friend, it was difficult to get my fruits and veggies in but with juicing it done in a glass so the sight of fruit makes me swoon. Pears adds a sweetness to my green juice.

Apples are my all time favorite - not terribly exciting but I love them! When they came into season this year, I ate an apple a day for two straight months! :P

I absolutely LOVE bing cherries!!

I am a sucker for melons- canteloupe, honey dew, watermelon. Great as a breakfast, perfect summer cool-down treat, frozen and used as ice cubes in sparkling water, and the perfect sweet end to a meal!

I love all fruits, but I love very ripe pears topped with Brie cheese. Mmmmm!!

Concord grapes! Takes me back to my childhood, eating them straight from the vines at my grandparent's

Berries!! When they are in season they don't last around me for a second!!

Macoun apples. They are the perfect mix of tart and sweet.They are only on the shelves for several months and then I have to wait a year. Teaches me patience.

Oh, it has to be the Mango for me. And in particular, the Bowen Mango which grown in Far North Queensland, Australia. Hmmm, now I'm getting a little homesick!

I once got a gift of Harry and David 3 month fruit (I think it was pears, oranges and apples)....perfect, well worth the money (if I ever had the money to spare) it is a memory that still makes my mouth water

Any fruit fresh off a tree or branch makes me swoon! I love the power of picking my own, but off my doorstep once in a while wouldn't be bad either! ;)

Pears! They're truly my favorite fruit...sweet, juicy-ripe pears with a sliver of good parmesan cheese.

I was visiting my grandma at the nursing home on Christmas and she got a bowl of fresh fruit with her dinner---I ate the pineapple chunks and they were amazing! :-)

Nothing better than picking Macoun apples from my friends orchard. The only apple I use for apple pie!
