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.
There are a few things that go hand in hand with Harry & David. Like Royal Riviera® Pears, gourmet gift towers and delicious chocolate truffles. But since 1934, when brother Harry and David Holmes began selling our famous pears to the captains of industry in New York and San Francisco, the primary ingredient in our gifts has been that special "hands on" touch and unmatched quality. From the simplest chocolate truffle to the tallest gift tower, we offer the best of the best when it comes to gourmet gifts. And all our gifts are backed by the strongest guarantee in the business. At Harry & David, we're proud of the high quality ingredients and attention to detail that we put into all of the gifts we offer. But we think it's our truffles that especially stand out. That's because we use a secret chocolate recipe that hasn't changed in more than 30 years. Charlie, our head chocolatier, and his dedicated team have worked hard to create the smoothest, most delicious chocolates and truffles this side of anywhere. Whether you like smooth and sweet milk chocolate truffles or the luscious hint of bitterness of dark chocolate truffles, the secret blend of gourmet chocolate and techniques that Charlie and his team use make all the difference. We've got the perfect chocolate gifts for every occasion and season. Excellent for an after-dinner treat or a party tray, our truffles are sure to be a hit. Send chocolates as a thank you or thinking of you gift. Take it from us. Nothing quite compares to receiving a box of chocolates.
