Bountiful Baskets

Bountiful Baskets is something I have mentioned in many of my posts. They have great deals for fresh fruit and vegetables among many other side options available. Their conventional basket is $15.00 for vegetable and fruit. This week there was a tropical pack add on to the conventional basket that was available for $10.50.  

Lets take a look at what $15.00 got me in fruits and veggies.

This had 1 bunch of romaine lettuce, 1 head of cabbage, 4 tomatoes, 6 bell peppers, 4 onions, 7 apples, 3lbs of red potatoes, 7 oranges, 1 bunch of asparagus, 1 container of blueberries, and a huge bunch of green beans.  All of this for only $15.00! 

But even with such a great deal of the conventional basket, the biggest deal was the tropical pack.

Lets see what came with the $10.50 tropical pack. 

It came with 2 mango's, 1 green plantain, 6 kiwis, 4 lemons, 1 coconut, 1 pineapple, 1 large bunch of mint, and 2 vanilla beans. This is such a great deal with just one of the items: vanilla beans. In their vanilla bean pod form they are expensive any where you go. I was at the local grocery store tonight and decided to see the cost of just the vanilla bean.

That is right $11.39 for vanilla beans.... correct that for a single vanilla bean. With bountiful baskets just for one single ingredient saved me at least $12.28 and that doesn't even include the other items that came with the tropical pack. 

Bountiful Baskets is such a great deal for everyone and anyone that loves saving money and eating great fruits and veggies! 


  1. I have been participating since May of last year. My favorite was the cases of peaches over the summer. Also love the cases of strawberries, too. I love making homemade jams and being able to control the sugar content. My kids have been raised eating lots of fruits and veggies, and prefer them to junk food. I believe the foods you feed your kids when they are small are what they stick with as adults, good or bad.

  2. It is a great way to control what your kids eat. I just posted a recipe of a marmalade that has minimal sugar and its great for kids and people that have diabetes.

  3. You are getting some awesome deals, and your family is VERY lucky you found out about this organization! They're also pretty darn lucky that you're such an awesome cook, and my son CONSTANTLY brags about you! XOXOXO

  4. I have been examinating out some of your posts and it's nice stuff. I will surely bookmark your site.
