We’ve seen stickers on fresh fruit for a while now, and Sunkist has been stamping its name on oranges for a long, long time.
But now there’s a company that lets you put your own company name, logo or message on fresh ripe fruit that can be sent to customers or prospects. It’s certainly a compelling way to say â€˜You’re the apple of my eyeâ€™ or â€˜Our business relationship is destined to bear fruit.â€™
You get the idea.
Portsmouth, N.H.-based Fun to Eat Fruit offers this edible and eco-friendly new marketing medium for its apples, pears, pears, nectarines, bananas and plums. The fruit arrives fresh, washed and ready to eat. According to the company, the inked image is completely edible, meeting FDA and Kosher-certified standards—and it does not contain any allergen material or peanuts.
Image on the peel has kid appeal
Fun to Eat Fruit also suggests that its fruit adorned with fun imprinted images can make eating fruit more appealing to finicky kids. Parents can order the fruit, which comes with such images as snowmen, Jack-o-lanterns, hearts, turkeys and smiley faces. There’s a different image for each month of the year (except July and August when the company does not ship any fruit). It’s a great way to pack more fun in the lunch box—or to impress the teacher when you put an apple on her desk that has a heart image on it. (Do kids still do that?)
The fruit arrives in tubes of four per tube. Minimum order of two tubes for $20. For more information, you can visit funtoeatfruit.com.
