Naumes Fruit Gifts Review and Giveaway

There's nothing better for a nice, healthy snack like fruit. I love strawberries, they are my absolute favorite fruit of all time. Bananas, grapes, cherries, and peaches are some of my other favorites. I was lucky to be able to try some of the freshest fruit you may ever find anywhere recently and that is pears from Naumes Fruit Gifts. Up until I got this for review, I had never tried pears, honestly. My kids and hubby have eaten the ones out of the can for years, but I myself had never tried them. Guess they never seemed appealing to me. Naumes Fruit Gifts has different varieties of pears, which was new to me as well. I received the Bosc Pears Fruit Gifts box for review and I must say these pears came beautiful packages and wrapped. Half of the pears were wrapped in tissue paper and the other half of the pears were wrapped in pretty purple foil. I was excited to try these because not only was this going to be the first time that I had ever tried pears, but also how good and fresh that these looked. My mother-in-law was over the day I received this box, so of course I had to share. She took it home with her and I never did find out from her how she liked it! My oldest daughter had one and I don't think she ever had a fresh pear either, but she really liked it. She told me it was sweet, which she loves everything sweet, but I could feel good about her eating this. I really enjoyed them as well. They were sweet and savory and really a great tasting snack. Of course, hubby loves pears and ended up taking the majority of them with him to work. Sometimes, it's hard to get him to take anything to eat with him to work, but I didn't have to tell him twice, he just grabbed them and off he went. He said these were by far the best tasting pears that he has ever had because they had a great flavor and were so fresh. The description on the Naumes site says that these Bosc pears are buttery sweet and I definitely got that from the first bite as well. If you like pears or if you're like me and haven't tried them, I urge you to order up a box of either these Bosc pears or any other variety of pears from Naumes Fruit Gifts. For a limited time offer, every fruit gift that you order will be matched with a double donation of fresh fruit to a food bank, which means 10 pounds for each fruit gift that you order from Naumes. So, not only are you getting the freshest fruit ever, but you're helping food banks help people in need. That's something to be proud of!

For the past 100 years, Naumes has been committed to growing quality fruit for generations to enjoy. As one of the largest family owned and operated pear growers in the world, they take great pride in the quality pears they produce. Major wholesalers and retailers have relied on their fresh fruit for decades and are proud to be able to offer fresh from their farm to you. When you are buying a gift from their family, you can definitely be assured that you are getting the very best that nature has to offer.
Naumes cares about families and communities where they live and work and believes everyone should have access to fresh fruit which is a vital part to a nutritious diet. They are doing their part to fight hunger with their Donate Fruit program that matches every gift you purchase, pound for pound with a donation of fresh fruit to feed hungry families.

These wonderful fruit boxes would make a great gift for anyone on your life, maybe as a gift to a dinner party instead of wine or as a just because gift for someone. Starting at $29.95 and with free shipping available, you can't go wrong.

Some of the great pear options that you have to choose from:
*Comice Pears- Fresh fruit equivalent of creamy custard and the flesh pairs great with a strong cheese.
*Red Pears- Flavorful and colorful, ideal for pairing with cheese, wine, or dark chocolate.
*Colossal Comice Pears
*Red Pear and Comice Mix Pears
*Bosc Pears- Buttery sweet, delicious when baked, poached. Ice cream and cinnamon complement their spicy flavor.
