WALLINGFORD, Conn., Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Edible Arrangements®, the global leader in creatively designed fresh cut fruit arrangements, is expanding its gifting capabilities to give Guests even more personalized gifting experiences. Known for its popular fresh fruit arrangements, the company is introducing two entirely new concepts this fall: Edible® Gift Baskets, a brand new line of fresh, locally made baskets, and Custom Swizzle® Colors, which allow Guests to choose from 66 colors to customize any gift. Both product offerings provide Edible® Guests with even more variety, shareability, and customization.
Unlike other gift baskets, which are typically made up of pre-packaged items and shipped, Edible® Gift Baskets are always locally made-to-order and filled with fresh gift items, and can be hand-delivered or picked up from any local Edible Arrangements® store same day. The new gift baskets feature a wide variety of products including whole fresh fruit, Pineapple Edible Pops®, Gourmet Belgian Chocolate Pops, chocolate Dipped Fruit™ boxes, Gourmet Shareable® Caramel Apples, Fruit Truffles®, and even the company's signature fresh fruit arrangements, all artfully arranged together for the perfect gift basket presentation.
"More and more, we see consumers seeking personalized gifting experiences that allow them to express their individuality," said Robert Price, President of Edible Arrangements. "With our fresh approach to gift baskets, we're giving Guests a unique option filled with fresh, locally made products presented in an impressive and easy-to-share display. There's tons of variety and individually wrapped or boxed surprises to discover, so our gift baskets are really the perfect way for Guests to send something that's meaningful and memorable for any occasion and any recipient – they're as great for birthday celebrations as they are for business gifting."
Edible Arrangements®' collection of gift baskets includes The Taste of Edible™ Gift Baskets for everyday occasions as well as Christmas Gift Baskets, all available for order today. Thank You and Birthday Gift Baskets will also be available starting Nov. 28.
The second innovation, Custom Swizzle® Colors, launching Sept. 27, will allow Guests to personalize any purchase by adding gorgeous, vibrant colors in 66 colors -- a thoughtful (and delicious) way to reflect the likes and interests of loved ones. Guests can customize any chocolate Dipped Fruit™ with colorful chocolate Swizzle® in the recipient's favorite color, show their pride for their local sports teams, celebrate baby showers, mark milestones like anniversaries or weddings, and so much more. All 66 colors are available in Edible Arrangements® store locations across the U.S & Canada. Select colors will also be available on edible.com, including orange for fall or Halloween, red and blue for election season, red and green for the holidays, and pink and blue for new babies and more.
"As a franchise that's built a reputation for WOW-worthy gifts, we're constantly looking for new ways to deliver our own take on gifting trends like customization. Our new Custom Swizzle® Colors make it easier than ever for Guests to create a gift that's personal, unique, thoughtful, and – of course – fun," added Price.
These innovative new gifting options come on the heels of the recent relaunch of the brand with their Edible To Go® line of grab and go products that includes fruit salads, fruit parfaits, fresh fruit smoothies, and Froyo Fruit Blends™, all made with 100% fresh fruit.
