I really hate writing negative feedback. However, this is for all of us who really want to do something special for someone special. In my case, it is to give my mom the gift of fresh fruit. She wants or needs nothing. So, after 7 Years of outstanding (read: uneventful) service with Edible Arrangements in Wilmington, NC I needed to contact the store. We always counted-on Edible Arrangements to deliver fresh, outstanding fruit to my mom at least 3 times a year -- without flaws, without failure. However, this Mother's Day Edible Arrangements failed miserably. My mom describes the fruit akin to: Cantaloupe like cardboard, Honeydew like paste, Strawberries like straw and Pineapple without flavor. When I called Edible they apologized and sent a “Pick Me Up” basket gratis. Feedback from mom: “Like fruit you'd get in a cafeteria – once again flat and flavorless and a “stingy” portion. I called (again!) and Edible assured me they'd make it right when the summer fruit season arrived at its peak and they'd call me – sometime in late June. I waited, waited and then decided to call. Guess what? Amnesia, put-on-hold and don't-give-a-rat's-butt came out. Take your chances: before you spend $100 plus on a gift you might consider buying Lotto tickets for a better outcome. Boo Edible Arrangements. The $3-400 per year mustn't make you happy. Commitments are like fruit – short shelf-life and easily passed.
