Funny thing about gift baskets: they tend to be so full of promise–delicious fruits! Artisan foods! Pretty, reusable packaging! Unfortunately, they rarely deliver. Not true for our new partner, Manhattan Fruiter. They saw that unmet potential and did the only sane thing: created a gift-basket company offering gorgeous, artistic, edible arrangements that taste as good as they look.
Take the above basket for example. The Whoop Dee Doo Gift Box, it features four whoopie pies (pumpkin and chocolate!) made by Brooklyn’s tasteful One Girl Cookies and seasonal fruit that was hand-selected and approved for its optimal flavor. (Manhattan Fruiter tastes from each batch of fruit they get in, in order to make sure it’s worthy of a place in your basket.)
Another brilliant offering is their Chocolate Fondue Basket (below). Loaded with eight pieces of seasonal fruit, it includes dark chocolate sauce by famed San Francisco chocolatier Michael Recchiuti and wooden skewers. We love the interactive element of this gift, plus it includes a surefire way to make sure the delicious fruit is put to good use!
