I have seen the ads and pictures promoting Edible Fruit Bouquets, like melon and strawberries dipped in chocolate, and my wife and I were thinking "Do people actually eat these?" and "Isn't the fruit handled a little too much for hygiene standards?" Maybe I'm completely off the mark - what do you think, have you received one and do you have some feedback? Thrilled to hear your responses...
Since I don't like something like chocolate and fruit mixed together anyway (and wouldn't eat it because of that), I've never thought about the contamination issue - but now that you mention it, no (even if I liked chocolate and fruit mixed together).
Your question is: Edible fruit baskets, would you eat them?" What are the "baskets" made of? I wouldn't eat the baskets unless they have listed the nutrients in them and from what edible products are they made?
I hadn't thought about the hygiene issue. I'd rather receive candy or flowers. I don't think I even know anyone who's received them. My parents sometimes receive gifts of whole fruit, like pears, from Harry and David, and we eat those.
ooohhh, good point. I never thought of the hygiene issue either. No, I guess I wouldn't eat them, if I got one. But I think I would eat the cookie bouquets, they come wrapped in plastic, right? (if I'm remembering correctly, they do!)
