Bella Viva Review

I first became a fan of Bella Viva dried fruit earlier this summer when I was sent a variety of their dried fruits. In fact, it was a sad, sad day at my house when I used up my dried fruit supply. That's why when Bella Viva contacted me a few weeks ago to review some more of their products for the holidays, I was so excited. 

For my review this time, I was sent the gift basket called Basket of the World containing 20 oz of  pluots, pears, apricots, nectarines, pitted prunes, and peaches. The tray retails for $19 which I think is a very good price because it comes with a lot of fruit. This would make an awesome Christmas gift and if I got this for Christmas, I know that I would be so excited.  
From the last time that I reviewed Bella Viva fruits, I really loved the pluots and dried nectarines the most. They are so much more moist than other dried fruits that you buy in the grocery store. One thing that I did notice is that I was not a huge fan of the organic fruits. They use different stuff to preserve the fruit than the conventional fruit and it was too dry for my liking. 
The fruit tray that I was sent is beautiful and I would definitely recommend giving it as a hostess gift or to anyone who is a huge dried fruit fan such as myself! It is the best dried fruit that I have ever tried!

  1. I really love myself some dried fruit, but honestly, I don't get as much of it as I would like. My favorite are dried bananas :)
