Unlike a bouquet of flowers, a bouquet of fruit won't erupt in a swarm of bees when you feed it to your valentine. Make painless romantic gestures with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of fruit bouquets and chocolate-dipped fruit at Edible Arrangements, valid at the locations on 12th Street and El Paseo Lane.
Edible Arrangements' talented fruit carvers expertly sculpt bouquets of fresh strawberries, melons, pineapples, and grapes into fetchingly delicious designs suitable for any occasion. The minimalist Expression line of bouquets ($24–$29) presents a burst of plain or chocolate-dipped fruit in a simple pastel vase, while more extravagant displays convey feelings of romance, sympathy, sorrow, and remorse for parking in the neighbor's living room. Sweet teeth, meanwhile, lose control while ferreting through boxes of fruit dipped generously in semisweet, white, and peanut butter chocolate ($25–$79). Although today's Groupon is valid for pick-up orders only, local, same-day delivery is available for an additional fee.
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.
