    With the start of a New Year comes New Year’s resolutions! Have you resolved to cut back on sugar this year? If so, we have good news for you…you don’t have to get rid of any fresh fruit gift baskets packed with premium fruit you may have received because, despite what you may have heard, giving up sugar does not mean you have to give up fruit!

    By: Pittman & Davis | On: | Category: Fruit Information Gift Guidance

    Say you’ve decided to order fruits from Pittman & Davis, either for yourself or as a fruits gift for someone else. But before you send fruits as a gift to someone, ask yourself this: how do you know if what you’re order is a fruit? How do you know it’s not a vegetable? You probably already know that, technically, tomatoes are fruits (even though the United States Supreme Court ruled they should be classified as vegetables under US Customs Regulations).

  • Which Smoked Meats are Best?

    By: Pittman & Davis | On: | Category: Gift Guidance

    For thousands of years people have smoked meats to add flavor and make the meat last longer. With modern methods of preserving meats (i.e. refrigeration) we’re not so dependent on smoking as we were, but it makes the meat taste so darn delicious we’re happy to keep doing it, anyway! Smoked meat gifts from Pittman & Davis are always popular, and never more so than during the holiday season.
