Before airplanes were used to ship produce, fresh strawberries were so rare that anyone who got his hands on one would quickly stuff it in a Mylar collector's sleeve. Toss mint-condition moldyberries with today's Groupon: for $19, you get one dozen everyday dark-chocolate-covered strawberries (a $39.55 value) at Bouquet of Fruits. Your Groupon is valid for in-store pick-up only and does not include the cost of tax.
Bouquet of Fruits specializes in the art of fusing fresh fruit with gourmet chocolate, known as melty flesh on the streets of Belgium. The everyday dark-chocolate-covered strawberry is the handsome crown jewel in Bouquet's fleet of fancy fruits. The strawberries are the finest California long-stemmed variety, coated in creamy dark chocolate and finished with a proud white-chocolate striping. These luxurious sweet treats are so enthralling they qualify as a belated Mother's Day gift, an apology card for underestimating kin, or a replacement for a glass eyeball that rolled under the couch.
Bouquet of Fruits was born more than 23 years ago in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley, where succulent fresh fruits sprout up faster than warts on a witch's nose. Since it started, Bouquet of Fruits has been using their talents to become one of the top innovators of delectable desserts, with creations ranging from chocolate-covered Peeps to M&M-covered chocolate and caramel apples. Bouquet of Fruits was awarded the Best Product Line for 2007 in the professional food competition held by America's Best Food Events.
