The labels on Harry and David products claim that they use "only the finest ingredients like.....", but when you read further, it looks like a chemistry experiment.

Red #40, Blue #1, Blue #2, titanium dioxide from one bag of chocolates.

Who wants to eat these chemical dyes? - they do nothing for the flavor.

At least, Harry and David, you inform people that they are getting a dose of chemical dyes when the poor customer believes that they are getting a serving of "the finest ingredients".

I looked briefly at the dried fruit plate and saw that there was another assortment of chemical dyes, plus a few chemical preservatives thrown in.

Reason of review: Bad quality.

Preferred solution: stop using chemical dyes in their products.

Had an Experience with Harry And David?

They are ridiculous for so many reasons, and they are laughing themselves all the way to the bank. Let's talk about wrapping mushy pears (or overly hard pears, whatever) in gold foil paper, immeshed in paper straw, sent in rugged boxes, and made to look like something special at outrageouly *** prices.

Here's how to get pears:

Grow a pear tree


Pick some

or Go to your local farmers's market and If all else fails, just the local supermarket--it's all the same danged thing!

Mmmm.... I love titanium dioxide in my "gourmet" food.


Those are pretty standard ingredients.Sad but true.

That's just the normal state of commercial food now.So you have a good complaint just not directed at the right people.

It worked for me-- I used it to argue something to a different company over a different thing. Glad for this website :) !
