We have made more than one order with Bountiful Baskets now, and so far, I would have to heap praise on what we get. I admit that we need to learn more about food storage and preservation, however, the food quantity is great for only $15! That said, I also have to admit that on the last order we placed I ordered two baskets rather than just one. The goods are grocery store quality, but with cantaloupe coming in a basket, what could have been the harm in ordering two? The boys love cantaloupe, which they had only tried once when we were living in England! So getting two baskets, and two cantaloupes certainly pleased them!
If there is one thing I would advise, learning food preservation and having the gear to do so would be helpful! In fact, I think learning can come later! We need to get a pressure cooker / canner! That is probably the biggest expense prohibiting us from canning each weekend, and possibly ordering up to the maximum of three baskets for our family!
If you have not tried Bountiful Baskets, then I would again encourage you to give it a try if you are in their operating area! Even the surprise is worth what we have got from them so far! And since the food just comes in your basket, if you are anything like us, normally quite shy of the produce section, then you will be eating healthier and trying things you don’t normally eat!
