compare my store pear to Harry & David

photo.JPGphoto.JPG

Why am I posting a picture of a pear?  I needed something cheap to use up a bunch of hair color overage at Jewel, so I grabbed a pear.  Price per pound 99¢ and this little runt set me back 58¢!  Which means each Harry & David pear we got Tuesday must weigh in at a couple of pounds easy.

Share and enjoy the gift of expertly tended, juicy, and butter-smooth pears grown in the heart of Southern Oregon:

$13 ($26.95 value) plus shipping for a box of Maverick® Royal Riviera® Pears
• Each five-pound box includes approximately nine pears.  Our box held 7 pears and was well over 5 pounds.
• These pears are beloved for their delicate, smooth flavor

Harry & David pears only $13 – we got ours!

photo.JPGFed-ex delivered a box of Harry & David pears today.  They were so big I told DH to just cut up one for us to snack on!  Turns out they weren’t quite ripe, but I was surprised at how much flavor the one pear had!  Can’t wait until they ripen in a couple of days.  Grab your own box with this great livingsocial offer:
