My kids have cute Easter, reusable Easter baskets from PersonalCreations that I fill with Peeps, Plush Toys, Apparel, Toys and other small items. But I really don’t want THAT kind of Easter Basket for me, a 35 year old woman. When I think of a basket, I remember the baskets my dad used to get full of cheese, crackers, wine, chocolates and other more mature treats that adults can appreciate.
So when filling and ordering Easter Baskets, remember family and friends from afar … and yourself. A Gourmet Easter Basket from The Fruit Company will give recipients amazingly fresh fruit and tasty food that everyone will love. The fruit from these baskets are the only fruit that my youngest son eats. (Crazy, right?! That alone is a reason to order these baskets!) And my oldest is a huge fruit fan. He gets so excited when the baskets arrive and he can pluck a big, red apple out of it.
This Easter The Fruit Company sent theMomBuzz household the Artisan Fruit and Cheese Basket. The minute I saw it had 15 ounces of 4 different types of block cheese, I knew I needed this basket. Cheeses include:
- 1 Crater Lake Blue Cheese 3.5 oz.
- 1 Smokey Blue Cheese – 3.5 oz.
- 1 Smokey TouVelle Triangle 4 oz
- 1 Garlic Cheddar Cheese – 4 oz.
It also has Honey Wheat Crackers that were just the right thickness and crispness to carry the cheese. And a 12 ounce bottle of Sparkling Apple Classic Sweet Cider. Finally, there is the fruit that my kids went crazy for:
- 2 Fuji Apples
- 1 Red Delicious Apple
- 1 Comice Pear
- 2 Green D’Anjou Pears
The fruit is so juicy and fresh. The cheese is so flavorful. And the high-quality basket itself is a keeper, something to hang onto for decor or reuse for another reason.
If you need more reasons on why this was my top pick for Easter, let me tell you that you that this basket includes FREE 2 DAY SHIPPING.
If you are looking for an absolutely cute Gourmet Easter-themed Basket, you might also like the Hoppy Easter Basket. It retails for $29.95, but you can get 25% off with the code – HOP14. What really stands out on this basket are the shaped cookies, 1 Carrot Cookie, 1 Easter Chick Lollipals and fun-colored Confetti Popcorn. There are also chocolate butterflies, only 3. And it wouldn’t be a fruit basket if it didn’t have fruit, so they included 1 Fuji Apple and 2 Green D’Anjou Pears.
These baskets are great to give as a hostess gift when invited to someone’s house for Easter dinner. It also makes a great gift to friends and relatives you can’t visit for the holidays.
