About Us

HONEY BEAR FRUIT BASKETS is back with the help of Mary Cucarola, original founder, and Jackie Huban, owner of Fresh Start Produce Too. Honey Bear was recognized as the best fruit basket company in the country by Frommer's in 2004. The baskets were known to be better quality and value than Harry & David, a well-known national company. 

Mary sold the business in 2006 to an employee, and it was never the same without her guidance. She is mentoring Jackie Huban on how to bring it back to its original excellence. Jackie owns a wholesale produce company in Denver and is able to procure the quality fruit necessary to make the baskets a step above everyone else's. You won't find this type of fruit basket in the grocery store or other gift basket company. 

All of our fancy foods are locally made in Colorado and several of the food items are crafted by our wholesale produce customers. Our foods are not shelf stable products with a lot of preservatives and chemicals like other basket competitors. We feel proud to support our wholesale customers with their products as they have been so loyal to us over the years.

We use premium quality fruit brought in weekly from various growing regions. We can assure you no basket company is putting in Pink Pearl Apples in their baskets like we are. We are very picky about our fruit and our gourmet foods. 

If you are looking for a quality, healthy gift idea to impress, we’ve got you covered.  #ShareHoneyBear

Thank you for supporting our local business,

Jackie Huban & Mary Cucarola
