Ganns Likes: FruiQuet

My family and I were recently at Eastwood Mall when my wife and I spotted this unusual selection of bouquets at a side store.

“Are those flowers?” I asked.

“They look like… fruit,” Caths replied.

Our curiosity piqued, we stepped in and were astonished by the lovely selection of bouquets, all made of fruit. The inventive store was called Fruiquet – pronounced froo-kay – and we were pleasantly surprised with the uniqueness of what they had to offer. We didn’t buy any Fruiquets that day, but we made a mental note to get a set or two the next time we were in need of an attractive and unique present.

I received the following press release and am publishing it for you in case you’re looking for last-minute Christmas presents. You can visit for more information.

Press release follows

We often find ourselves stressed out during the Yuletide Season looking for the most appropriate Christmas presents for our loved ones. Case in point — what do you actually give to your big boss who seems to have everything already? Or to your better half who expects something extra-ordinary and nothing like the one you gave a year ago? It’s a good thing there is a unique concept that is starting to be the talk of the town in Metro Manila.

FruiQuet (prounced froo-kei) is short for fruit bouquet. Quite popular in the United States, Europe and parts of the Middle East, this unique gift idea is now in the Philippines. It offers various fruit concoctions that are cut, molded and arranged to resemble eye-catching flower arrangements. The difference is that FruiQuets are very practical since they are edible and are made of the finest and freshest fruits in season such as kiwis, cantaloupes, watermelons, oranges, green or red apples, seedless grapes and American strawberries. Depending on the chosen design, some fruit chunks may be dipped in premium white or milk chocolate.

Operating for two (2) years now, FruiQuet has already brought smiles to thousands of Filipino recipients during special occasions. Senders come from people with discriminating taste particularly homemakers from prime villages, showbiz personalities, multinational companies, fan clubs and even Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs). The fruit bouquets may be picked up at any of FruiQuet’s three (3) branches (Katipunan, Eastwood Mall and Shangri-la Plaza) or delivered fresh and chilled right at the door step of the chosen recipient for a reasonable fee.

FruiQuet is proud to offer its Christmas Collection for 2012. Some of its best-selling fruit bouquets for the holidays include Christmassy Tropics (P650), Christmas Fun (P650), Christmas Wish (P800), Yuletide Bells (P1500), Starry Christmas (P1750) and O’ Christmas Tree (P2100). There are more than 30 other designs to choose from including the traditional Fruits-In-A Basket (large/medium/small) and Choco-Dipped Strawberries Supreme in boxes of 4,6,9 and 12. To add pizzazz to the FruiQuets, customers may also choose to bundle special accessories like holiday-themed foil balloons, personalized cards or sparkling, red or white wine.

At FruiQuet, they understand how you value your precious time. They know how you would rather spend this exciting season bonding with your special someone or reminiscing with long-lost friends and relatives. Send them your VIP list and they will handle the rest. This Christmas, stay hassle-free and express and impress with FruiQuet!
