Kudos and Congratulations

"I have appreciated the bonus packs not to mention the apricots. I'm on the road to KS once a month & several times a year on to CO...so am "into" good road-trip food.  I only see Pacific coast apricots in CO. We cannot get anything but Mediterranean in the grocery stores in LA & KS. Yours are the best!" ~ Anne

"....I ate half a bag of apricots today, they are just like I remembered from the Mountain View farmers market. I'll be ordering again soon! Prunes were great too! We don't have anything like this in Hawaii." ~ Cesily

"Everything did arrive yesterday - - I had to resist the urge to race home when I had a break! It's a half hour each way - - but it was tempting.  As soon as I began to open the box, the apricot aroma hit me. I mean that scent just poured out, and it is lovely. Thank you to whoever packed the box. Everything was carefully packed, and I was happy too see that packing seemed to re-use some plastic bags which once held apricots, which might explain the box being so scented (since the actual fruit was sealed)." ~ Ruth

"Your business may be so big that you won't recall the Hubbeling family in Austin Texas, but probably you do, as we have been customers for many years. In particular our daughter Harper has been a devoted fan of your apricots, to the point where it's a well known attribute to both family and friends.

Around the time of her high school graduation, I was given an opportunity to speak publicly about Harper and her accomplishments to that point in life. One of the points I made was that if one believed in the saying that "you are what you eat", and were simultaneously aware of the fact that Harper eats prodigious amounts of apricots, as well as admired her accomplishments, perhaps the conclusion was that we should all eat more apricots. Lots more apricots. That got a good-natured laugh from the audience.

Well, 6 years have passed. Harper has recently been accepted to 3 Ivy League medical schools. She'll start in the fall.

And as you can see from today's order, whatever she's doing is still being powered by lots and lots of apricots. The best in the world, we think." ~ Mike H.

"I just rec our first order from you last week. All I can say is OMG!  The chocolate covered apricots were out of this world. Also, your fancy blend apricots were as good or better than I've ever had before. Thank you so much for the great products and fast service. We will definitely be ordering again soon for ourselves and for x-mas gifts." ~ Don

"Just received my third order of Apricots from you and just wanted to tell you how special it is to receive a handwritten note each time on the packing slip. Taking the extra time to do this is remarkable in today's fast short cut society. Thanks again!  SLABS are magnificent.  Keep the apricot trees alive and thriving." ~ Phyllis

"My family got their first order of your delicious apricots last month, and we could not be more pleased!! My college roommate's grandparents had an apricot orchard in Southern California, and every summer she would send me a whole big box of delicious sun-dried apricots.  I have always been addicted to them.  I live in Chicago, and over the past 2 years it has become increasingly difficult to find anything but Mediterranean apricots (yuck - mushy and completely flavorless) in the stores.  I decided to buy online, and after tasting (well, it was actually DEVOURING) the apricots we ordered from you, I am happy to say that we will be regular customers from now on. My sons and I think your apricots and pistachios are the best!  Thank you so much!" ~ Sandy, Colin and Tyler B.

"We have been back home to Tennessee for a few days and I am now packing my apricots into zip lock bags for freezing. It is so hard not to eat most of them as I do it. You could never have me as an employee. I would eat all the profits.  Thanks so much for still making these excellent dried apricots available; and, for taking the time to show us around when we were at your facility. It was a great experience.  I wish you much success in your business." ~ Joe S.

"Having been customers of your wonderful apricots for many years and wanting to have something different for our Easter dinner, I discovered your recipe web page. Your "Old Favorite Custard Apricot Pie" was the hit of the day! Made my own homemade crust and covered the custard with some heavy whipping cream and garnished with some canned apricots.  It looked good and tasted even better.  Thank you!" ~ Clare and Kenn M. from South Carolina

"This year I ordered to Royal Gift Baskets.  One for my parents and one for my in-laws.  My father is an absolute apricot fanatic and has been getting them for presents his whole life.  He called me today and said the apricots I sent him this year were hands down the best he's ever had.  My in-laws said they ate almost a quarter of the basket within the first 10 minutes of it being in the house.  Thank you for providing an outstanding product and making my Christmas shopping so simple.  I know they will be eagerly anticipating my present next year!" ~ Rickki W.

"Thanks for your nice phone call and reply.  It made it easy to get  the order done.  I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed making  fruit cake using your dried apricots, pears and cherries in my  favorite apple sauce fruit cake instead of the usual citron etc." ~ Wilma C.

"I've just received my latest shipment of your wondrous apricots.  And, I appreciated the personal note and the extra slab apricots.  Never knew what a slab was...other than a slab of country bacon.  Nothing is more seductive, sultry to mean than dried apricots." ~ Nancy E.

"I was born and raised in California, so I know a good apricot when I eat one.  I recently moved to Kansas to check out the four seasons.  Well, the only apricots one can find out here are Turkish.  Are they kidding me!!!  Went online to find some from my beloved California and your company's are most excellent!  Can't wait for the new crop in June." ~ S. Hillman, KS

"...the snack pack just absolutely tingles the taste sensations!  Everything arrived this evening and in wondrous shape - and oh my - the apricots are fantastic!  I happen to have very low potassium and very high, extremely high, B-12.  So, I have to correct both.  Dried apricots, lima beans, and potatoes with skins are the highest potassium producers with no B-12.  I'd rather eat a great dried apricot than most anything I can think of.  These are wondrous! ~ N. Nellis, ME

"Thank you so much for the beautiful delicious apricots.  I just made apricot preserves/filling and I wanted to tell you that the apricot color and taste are outstanding. I just noticed the recipes on your website...I'll have to give  them a try.  I made sweet rolls and used the apricot filling...delicious.  Also the apricot preserves on toast is so good for breakfast." ~ Arlene

"I always buy your unsulfured apricots at the Moraga Farmers' Market.  They are delicious!  I brought a bag to work last week, and it was such a hit with my coworkers that my 20oz bag was gone in a few hours!  Thanks for continuing to sell "natural" dried fruit -- you will keep us all healthier!" ~ Moraga

"Thank you for the great service, as always!  I think of you, especially when I'm doing my annual Christmas cookie baking marathon because the diced apricots you sell make it so much easier than having to soften up dried apricots and dice them myself.  I'm looking forward to trying all those dried pears, peaches, etc." ~ J.

"The apricot jam that I made with your Blenheims, picked up at the Los Altos Farmers Market last July, came out beautifully.   Not only is it absolutely delicious (I receive lots of compliments and requests from the family), but the Blenheims are the only ones which give a lovely, clear quality to the jam.  If I can't manage to arrange a trip to California this coming year, I may have to try a dried apricot jam." ~ L.
