Harry and David Royal Riviera Pears...for yourself or a friend

Ever since visiting the Harry & Davidorchards in Southern Oregon a couple of years ago, I have fallen in love with their Royal Riviera Pears.

Harry and David Royal Riviera Pears Giveaway
Last year, we sent boxes of pears to several people on our Christmas list.  (It probably goes without saying that I ordered a box for our little family as well.)

If you're like me, you're always a little nervous to send mail-order food as a gift without seeing it yourself.  Never fear!  I can attest that these pears are THE BEST you'll ever have...and you'll hear all about how delicious and beautiful they are from your gift recipients.

There's also no worrying about GMO's...Harry & David's pears are non-GMO and after 80 years, they still use all natural grafting methods, instead of genetically modifying the seeds.

Harry and David Royal Riviera Pears Giveaway
Harry & David is offering a box of their exquisite pears to one of you!  (A $29.95 value).
Just leave a comment on the blog telling me if you'd keep them for yourself or send them to a loved one.

Entries accepted through 11:59pm CST, December 11th.

*Giveaway is sponsored by Harry & David.  All opinions are my own.*

Go check out all of their beautiful pear gift boxes...Royal Riviera Pears-Starting at $19.95!

  77. I would keep them and savor them. My grandmother, who lived in Oregon, used to send us Harry & David fruit as a Christmas gift (we live in Texas). She has been gone almost 17 years now, and I really miss her and I miss the treats she sent from Harry & David. As I was reading your post, I got a little teary just remembering. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  78. We got a Harry & David gift basket at work once, and I remember the pears being the best I'd ever eaten. I'm afraid I'd keep them for myself, but only so I could bake with them for the family. A pear upside-down cake & some homemade pear preserves would be at the top of my list. Happy holidays!

    ReplyDelete
