Though some fruits prefer to be eaten naked, many prefer to cover their seedy shame with an Armani-tailored three-piece suit of chocolate and coconut. Taste a fruit that's bursting with juice and dressed like Don Draper with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fruit and chocolate-based goodies at Edible Arrangements. You may either pick up or arrange a delivery at either of Edible Arrangement's two Columbia locations only. This deal is not valid for online orders or for orders delivered outside of the Columbia area. Delivery rates vary, but most locations cost about $12—be sure to ask when placing your order
Edible Arrangements' chocolate-dipped strawberry box ($25) merges the rich flavors of chocolate with the succulent decadence of fresh strawberries. The primly packaged red box contains 12 ripe strawberries, each of which was picked at its peak freshness before being hand-dipped in a semi-sweet chocolate blend. Teacher's pets seeking domestication can gift their eminent educator with something other than the traditional red apple or slab of shark meat by arriving on the first day with a box of chocolate-covered strawberries.
If you're allergic to strawberries or just still mad at them for making such a drunken scene at your wedding, you can use this deal instead to receive $30 worth of any other fruit arrangement. Edible Arrangement's fruit bouquets, which are preservative-free, come in many dashing displays and can include apple wedges, bananas, schnozberries, and more. All fruit is cut at the peak of freshness and ripeness so that it's ready to eat when delivered to your office holiday party or celebration of Regis Philbin's 76th consecutive reincarnation as Regis Philbin.

Juicy tidbits of chocolate-dunked fruit arrive on the doorsteps of family and friends, done up in colorful bouquets and candy boxes by the skilled fruit arrangers at Edible Arrangements' more than 1,100 franchises worldwide. The company's in-house chocolatiers drizzle albion strawberries and daisy pineapples in a trio of chocolate flavors. Once properly chocolated, the workers organize the preservative-free sweets into lush arrangements that resemble flowers in bloom. Customers can choose to plop their bouquets in a variety of vessels, including vases, mugs, and sports- or holiday-themed containers that add a personal touch to the edible gifts. Alternatively, customers can opt to adorn gifts with the cheery, red lids of candy boxes, nestling 12 chocolate-dipped morsels inside to build anticipation and determine if loved ones have x-ray vision as they guess whether fruit will come dusted in shredded coconut or drizzled in white chocolate.
