It all started back in 1934, when two brothers traveled to New York and San Francisco to sell their incredibly sweet and juicy Royal Riviera® Pears to business executives. These two brothers were our founders, Harry and David Holmes, and the Royal Riviera® Pears were an instant hit. It's been almost 80 years since then and our range of high quality gifts has expanded to include the best fresh fruit gifts around, a variety of gourmet chocolate gifts, cookie gifts, cheesecakes and much more.
Today, our specialty chocolates and sweets are delicious treats to enjoy at any occasion. From gourmet truffles and hand-dipped chocolate fruit to cookies, pies and cakes. It's all made with the finest ingredients to ensure you're choosing true quality with a gourmet food gift from Harry & David.
1934 was a magical year for our founders, Harry and David Holmes. That was the year the brothers traveled to New York and San Francisco to sell their juicy Royal Riviera® Pears to business executives. The pears were an instant success and the rest, as they say, is history.
- Here at Harry & David, we're proud of all our gifts, but especially so when it comes to our fruit and chocolate. And even more so when we combine the two.
- Our chocolate dipped fruits are the definition of decadence. From our delicious gourmet chocolate to our rich, buttery caramel, we use only the best ingredients to create our sweet treats. We create our chocolate from a secret recipe that hasn't changed in more than 30 years.
- When it comes to gourmet gifting, our chocolate caramel dipped apples and pears or chocolate dipped strawberries are an elegant gift to give to that special someone. Or, you know, yourself.
