Top Consumer Reviews for Best Fruit Baskets

Say It with Fruit, Rather than Flowers

The first thing that comes to mind when celebrating or sending condolences are flowers. Flowers are lovely but their live span is a week or less.

Nowadays people are turning to attractive fruit baskets for all occasions. Fruit is an essential part of our daily food group, plus it nourishes both the body and soul.

I also found a fruit basket is the best way to express one’s condolences in someone’s hour of grief.

Recently, a dear and close friend of mine lost her mate after many happy years of marriage. I had already decided that flowers were not the answer. I wanted to give her something truly special; hence, I choose a gift basket of fruit.

What I didn’t realize at the time was that the big problem would be finding a company that delivered out of state; in my case it was small town in South Carolina.

I searched Consumer’s Report for the best fruit basket company which turned out to be The Fruit Company. The company closes at 2pm on Saturday so I called the after-hours customer service but before even placing the order, I asked if they delivered to this destination. YES/YAY! they did!!

The lady took my order super proficiently which made me very happy, since not all humans are created equal when it come to taking information. 

What really impressed me the most is that the following day I received a call from customer service stating that their dispatcher was aware of my order placed after hours and was following up to confirm the order and to ask if I needed anything else. Plus, if there is anything wrong with the fruit basket, they will replace the damaged portion at no cost. 

I am including the link to consumers list of top ten fruit companies so that if and when my readers need to sent something special, they will have an idea of who’s who at the fruit zoo. By the way, The Fruit Company heads the list.

Say it with fruit, rather than flowers!

Hear My Roar!

There is nothing in this life that cannot be fixed or, resolved;hence, life consists of situations, not problems. Like grandma used to say“there’s a lid for every pot”.

Whether it is parenting, enjoying a relationship or, trying to advance in the workplace, the key ingredients are patience, persistence and pursuit.

Patience:Stand back and view the entire picture.
Persistence: Tool of determination. Stay positive. Let nothing and no one deter you from moving forward.

Pursuit:  Aim high until you achieve that dream/goal.

What you would realize later in life that you live in a negative society that thrives on obstacles that hold you down and hold you back.

The Early Years
From toddler to adolescence, your mind was pretty much on what you wanted to be when you grow up. Family and friends mused over your vivid imagination. You were a child and had no voice of your own.

During the scholastic years, your classmates and teachers (professors) were actually supportive in your goals and what you hoped t…

Why Marrying Your Best Friend could be a Mistake

Each of us has that one special someone we have known for most of our life and to whom we can bear our soul without being judged or betrayed. They are our support system 24/ in good times and in not so good times. They are that one positive, constant we depen -->d on to keep us honest and grounded.
Soulmate and best friend are entirely different. A soulmate is someone who encourages us and helps us grow on all three levels – personally, socially and professionally.
We share secrets with our best friend and other stuff we could never share with a family member, other friends or acquaintance; so why is it a huge mistake to fall in love with and marry our best friend?
A best friend means just “that” / someone we turn to for rescue or advice when life’s ocean creates too many ripples and we feel ourselves drowning.

When we marry our best friend, life changes but not always for the better. That person actually stops being our best friend since marriage takes on a different hue and role. M…

What Puts Power in the Power Couple

Grandma always said: Be beautiful at the window, be an angel in the kitchen and a devil in the bedroom. 

Love, trust, understanding and communication are the common denominators for a good relationship, whether you are companions or dating long-term and contemplating the big step.
The Power Couple is the highest level-relationship. They do have their ups and downs, but quickly resolved and never disclosed in public.
The power couple is admired and envied. They always seem to be in sync and display compatibly wherever they go. This is not a fairy tale relationship by any means but the ingredients are different.
How It begins Most people marry their high school or college sweetheart or, they go separate ways after school for whatever reason – they might marry – then either divorce or become widowed. Then it comes into play at the High School Class/College Reunion. They meet once again, catch up and discover they are both in the “same place” and ready to rekindle that old flame.
The power c…
