There is something totally intoxicating about receiving a package in the mail. Whether it is expected (because you ordered it) or a thoughtful gift from someone who loves you, it’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a quickness in your step as you begin the process of opening the box. Even if you know what’s inside, there is still a bit of wondering and anticipation that happens as the tape gets cut and the box unfolds to reveal its secrets.
That was what I experienced, as I opened my first monthly box of HarvestClub Americana Classic fruit from The Fruit Company. Right away, I noticed that everything was packaged very well; the box was good quality and the enclosed items didn’t shift around at all. Time to see what was inside!
Nestled within their own spaces like little eggs in a nest, I laid my eyes on six very big oranges. These oranges weren’t your average size. They were bigger than softballs and beckoned to be cradled in the palms of both hands. They were super cold, fresh and bright, and I couldn’t wait to dig in.
Neither could my children. They had just gotten home from school and were looking for an afternoon snack. In our house, eating healthy requires action, and keeping the pantry and fridge filled with nutritious food is one of the ways I make sure my kids get the balanced diet that they need for their growing and energetic bodies. It’s important to offer a variety of good foods, and then allow your kids to choose their favorites. On this day, absolutely every one of my children were practically stepping over each other in their efforts to gobble down some of the sweet and aromatic oranges from The Fruit Company.
I sliced two big oranges, which fed all of my five hungry kids. As wedge after wedge was stripped clean of its juicy membranes, I heard moans of delight. “This is the best orange in the world! You are the best! Thanks mom!” In actuality, they should have been thanking The Fruit Company. They made it so easy for me to be “the best mom”, and it required so little effort on my part. The Fruit Company makes ordering a breeze and having it shipped right to my door (instead of having to buy it at the store) is perfection.
An afternoon filled with big juicy oranges put us all in a great mood. Not only did we get a boost of vitamins and minerals that help our bodies be strong and healthy, we also felt our spirits lift and our mood was elevated. Even more so, we were delighted to realize that we had four more oranges left to tempt us. Thank you Fruit Company, for the most amazing oranges we had ever eaten! If you’d like to enjoy some amazing fresh fruit, let The Fruit Company do the work for you!
