Naumes Review and Giveaway

Summer is the perfect time for picnics. I love going to the park and bringing along some sandwiches and some little finger foods for a nice lunch. Naumes Fruit Gifts offered me this opportunity!

Who is Naumes? (Taken from their website)

NaumesFruitGifts.com is known for their delicious pears and are committed to growing quality fruit for generations to enjoy. As one of the largest family owned and operated pear growers in the world, we take great pride in the quality pears we produce. Major wholesalers and retailers have relied on our fresh fruit for decades and we are proud to begin offering it fresh from our farm to you. When you buy a gift from our family, you can be assured that you are getting the very best that nature has to offer.

Naumes cares about the communities where we live and work and believe everyone should have access to fresh fruit, a vital part of a nutritious diet. That’s why we are doing our part to fight hunger with our Donate Fruit program that matches every gift you purchase, pound for pound, with a donation of fresh fruit to food banks that feed hungry families.

Naumes's new Donate Fruit program offers delicious and beautifully made gift sets to buy and enjoy. I think it's very important and also very generous that for every gift set that someone purchases, a food bank receives a donation of fresh fruit to feed hungry families. Fruit is something that we take for granted, but it may bring great happiness to a lower-income family who wants something healthy in their diets.

I was sent the "Suncrest Appetizer."


Some information about the gift set:
Spread some toasted baguette slices with all-natural Artichoke Piquillo Bruschetta, made with flame-roasted red piquillo peppers. For those who love pesto with zest, the Artichoke Lemon Pesto on innovative hand-made focaccia crackers is irresistible. Pre-sliced Beef Sausage kicks in some hickory smoked flavor to your party, and fresh-roasted mixed gourmet nuts add in the crunchy factor. And with the included mini wood cutting board and cheese knife, these tasty treats can go straight to your outdoor concerts and picnics!

Collection Includes:

# 9oz Deluxe Mixed Nuts
# 9.9oz Artichoke Piquillo Bruschetta
# 10oz Lemon Pesto
# 2oz Pre-Sliced Beef Summer Sausage
# Cheddar Chive Currant Focaccia Cracker
# Mini Wood Cutting Board
# Small Cheese Knife

I loved the lemon pesto. I thought it was delicious on the foccacia crackers! It didn't have an overpowering lemon taste, but it was just a subtle hint of lemon. I am a huge fan of pesto. I didn't taste a ton of cheese in the crackers, but they did have a nice flavor. Not only is this great for a picnic, but it's also great to serve as appetizers at a dinner party, along with others as well. I think this is an excellent gift to give as well. I don't know how you can go wrong with serving or giving someone this set :)
