My late night habit of watching Discovery Health has been repeatedly interrupted by commercials claiming have found a better solution for and a replacement of flowers – edible bouquets of fruit.

Firstly, they look strange.  Fruit on sticks shoved into a basket or vase really isn’t my idea romance, or thank you, or anything – it seems like a bad idea.  The obvious question then becomes, just how fresh is the fruit?  I don’t know a whole lot about it, but I do know that fresh-cut fruit does not travel.  Really at all.

I’m disturbed that there is no mention of the transporting of said bouquets, at least not on Edible Arrangements website, aka the premeire fruit arranger, at least none I saw in my brief scanning.

So, in lieu of flowers, please send… flowers.
