Today’s Gift Club review is for the well-known and very popular Fruit of the Month Club from Harry & David. The October Organic Fruit of the Month Club featured beautiful (and huge!) Royal Riviera® Pears. What a treat!
The pears were still a little hard, so I followed the instructions and left them out for a few days to soften up. After 2 days, I stuck half in the fridge and left the other half out another day.
When I bit into the first pear – WOW! It was perfect! Not too hard, not too soft. And so incredibly SWEET! Just what you would hope a pear would taste like.
I used one in a fresh smoothie with some strawberries and bananas. Topped it off with a little cinnamon and it was way better than anything you get at the local smoothie shop. The pears really complemented the cinnamon spice and made for a great fall treat.
