Eat Fruit, Help Fight MS

What’s better than eating some delicious, fresh fruit that’s been delivered to your door? Eating fruit and helping to fight MS, that’s what!

Edible Arrangements fruit arrangements are a healthy and beautiful gift for any occasion. I am a huge fan, as you can tell by the below photo from my birthday last Tuesday. My mom sent me this Edible Arrangements basket, and we polished it off in just a couple of days. It was a sweet way to celebrate, and it provided us both with healthy snacks.

Orange Blossom

For the month of March, Edible Arrangements has been donating a portion of sales of their Orange Blossom arrangement to the National MS Society, New England Chapter. To celebrate this month of giving and to promote the initiative in its final week, Edible Arrangements have offered to give one lucky (New England) reader an Orange Blossom arrangement. Sounds pretty sweet to me! More details on the partnership between Edible Arrangements and the National MS Society can be found in the press release at the end of this post. Here’s how to enter to win:

1) Leave a comment here telling me your favorite fruit of all time.

2) For an extra entry, link back to this post on  Twitter with “I want to win fruit from @DoFruitNE and @traveleatlovemm.”

I will choose a winner on Friday morning.

Please note:

* Delivery is within a limited area only.  (Most of MA and Southern NH is included)

*Delivery to the winner will be during the week of April 2

Good luck!

National MS Society Partners with Edible Arrangements® to Raise Money for Multiple Sclerosis Research and Services

Proceeds from Edible Arrangements Orange Blossom® Sales During the Month of March Benefit National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Greater New England Chapter

Waltham, MA—March 1, 2012 —Today, the National MS Society, Greater New England Chapter announced its partnership with the Boston-Manchester Co-op of Edible Arrangements in a campaign to raise funds and awareness to stop progression, restore function and end multiple sclerosis forever.

During the month of March, coinciding with the National MS Society’s MS Awareness Month, Edible Arrangements stores throughout Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire will donate a portion of their sales from every Orange Blossom arrangement purchased to the National MS Society. This arrangement is especially fitting because orange is the official color of The Society.  As long as arrangements are ordered and paid for during the month of March, they can be delivered at any time throughout the year.

“We are honored to have the opportunity to give back to the community and help fight a disease that affects so many people across the world,” states Chris Dellamarggio, inaugural Edible Arrangements franchise owner and president of the Boston-Manchester Co-op.”

“The National MS Society, Greater New England Chapter is thrilled to work with Edible Arrangements, a company that was built around celebrating life. This fundraiser helps individuals and families move together toward a world free of MS,” said Arlyn White, President & CEO of the Greater New England Chapter.

To order an Orange Blossom bouquet, call or visit any of the participating MA or NH locations or visit and select any Orange Blossom arrangement (product codes: 1025, 1064 or 1066).

    I think strawberries might be my absolute favorite. But I love so many fruits… I crave mangos a lot lately… and grapefruit and Cara Cara oranges. (And I love the chocolate-covered grapes in some Edible Arrangements bouquets!)

    Strawberries are delish, and they are so versatile. They can be sweet or savory and are so refreshing no matter how they are prepared!

    My favorite fruit is pineapple. I could eat it everyday – just wish fresh pineapple wasn’t so labor intensive.
