Edible Arrangements' fresh-fruit bouquets merge the beauty of a floral display with Mother Nature's most delicious candy. At more than 1,000 stores across the globe, fruit florists carve pineapples into flower forms, hand dip bananas into semisweet and white chocolate, and swathe Albion strawberries—sweeter and darker than regular strawberries—in coats of coconut and almonds. Then, they arrange the morsels into eye-catching displays to fill mugs and vases or line decorative gift boxes. Patrons can find an arrangement for nearly any occasion, whether they want to honor Mother's Day, sweeten an anniversary, or send condolences after the death of a friend's pet rock. Customers can shop online and opt for delivery or pick up finished displays at a storefront location.
