Has giving the gift of food become the new norm or do flowers still trump all in term of direct-to-door surprises?
That question certainly demands somewhat of a debate given that delivery services no longer are solely based on flowers. Such high-profile and renowned entities such as 1800-Flowers.com deliver the goods literally in terms of some sensational bouquets and arrangements for just about any occasion.
Timely deliver, remarkable quality and timely service absolutely define the makeup of 1800-Flowers.com and other comparable companies that have made careers -- and millions -- out of the gift-giving business, more specifically flowers.
But as much as flower arrangement companies have bloomed incredibly in recent years, the emergence of the edible arrangements make for a scintillating and stirring debate as to who really rules the roost in this particular industry.
Edible Arrangements easily is the most recognizable company that deals in delivering fresh fruit -- either with or without a scrumptious chocolate dip. Edible Arrangements doesn't show signs of waning, either. In fact, their success has not only created stiff competition with those in the floral business but also has allowed Edible Arrangements to take their fruit show on the road. They've begun to ship their aptly titled edible arrangements to grocery stores and super markets for mass consumption in the retail market via a healthy-looking -- and official -- Edible Arrangements cooler.
