A Parcel from Pink Lady Apples

Andy can be a picky eater but one thing he never turns down is a Pink Lady Apple.  He buys bags of them and eats one almost every day.  Imagine how exciting it was when this big parcel arrived from Pink Lady Apples!


I was expecting a parcel but I didn't expect two beautiful pink boxes tied with Pink Lady ribbon.


In addition to the pink boxes, there was a little bubble wrap bundle of goodies containing a Pink Lady key ring and a Pink Lady pen!


Do you remember how it was when you were a kid at Christmas?  You want to rip open the presents but you know you'll get scolded for being so greedy.  It was sort of like that opening the pink boxes.  I carefully removed the bubble wrap, untied the first ribbon and inside were these...


Nine lovely Pink Lady Apples nestled in bright pink paper.   Good thing I didn't shake the box before opening it.   And in the second box....


Every ingredient I need to make Pink Lady Flapjacks!  Thank you PINK LADY APPLES for this lovely parcel.  Time for me to start baking.

  2. How lovely! In a world of cost cutting, reduced budgets and over worked/under paid staff, what a fab gesture!

  3. How beautiful! I love people (companies, etc) who take time with wrapping and packaging. It shows attention to detail.

    Mr. Tea in England eats an apple every day too but he's always eaten Bramleys. I don't think he's ever even tried a Pink Lady apple. I'll have to pick one up for him the next time we do the weekly food shop.

    Enjoy your baking!

    1. Golden Delicious apples were used in developing the Pink Lady so it's a crisp, sweet apple. They remind me of the great Golden Delicious apples we used to eat in the States but those apples never came gift wrapped in pink ribbons! : )

  4. It looks yummy and I never thought they packed apples so lovely! My favorite apple is Red Delicious! I is nice thought to see such carful work and the workers give a lot of time to do it. Love Sara
