Dubbed the “Motor City,” Detroit is home to two power-house car companies, General Motors and Ford. A leader in car manufacturing, the city takes its cars seriously, which is why our “Car and Truck” cake pops are sure to put a smile on any local’s face. Hand decorated and coated in red, yellow and blue colors, our gooey chocolate cake pops make a sweet surprise gift for anyone who loves cars, or works in the automobile industry.
Cars aside, Detroit is known as “Hitsville USA” for its Motown music. There is nothing like listening to these songs at a live concert, and our gift baskets sent to Detroit contain the perfect pre-concert snacks. If you’re hosting a party at home, try our elaborate sampler gift baskets with dried fruit, crackers, cheese, pretzels and biscotti. Or, if you are planning on bringing some treats to an outdoor concert, we suggest our freshly dipped strawberries or our chocolate mixed nuts and berries. These fun and flavorful snacks were meant to be shared with friends while sipping on some wine and relaxing to the sound of soul music from the seventies.
As one of only twelve cities in the United States to have four major North American Sports teams, Detroit is home to the Detroit Lions (football), Pistons (basketball), Tigers (baseball) and Red Wings (ice hockey). If you’re looking for a Detroit birthday gift basket, we have several flavorful options. Celebrate a loved one’s favorite team with our hand-dipped, sports-themed strawberries, which are 100% guaranteed fresh and feature basketball, football, or baseball designs. If you know a super fan of all types of sports, then choose our “Happy Birthday Sports Cookie Bouquet,” which includes multiple sports plus an additional “happy birthday” cookie, which can be customized with the birthday guy or girl’s name for a personal touch.
For Detroit food gift baskets, there are many tasty and creative choices. Detroit is famous for its “Coney Island” hotdogs, which are covered in chili, onions and mustard. For newbies to Detroit, be sure not to bring ketchup to a barbeque in the city—the local residents will laugh at you! But for a spicy kick, send a bottle of our hot sauce in flavors of red pepper, green jalapeno and the intimidating “Crying Tongue.” Or, add some sweetness with our “Great Grill Gift Kit” containing chipotle maple sauce.
As an alternative to classic Coney dogs, many Detroit families and friends enjoy the city’s Middle Eastern cuisine. Over the past twenty years, Detroit has seen a steady rise in its Arabic population and many of these cultural pastries include chopped nuts, such as Baklava. If you are sending a Detroit gift basket to Arabic friends, or bringing a Detroit food gift basket to a potluck along with a Middle Eastern dish, then our mixed nut samplers are the way to go. Our organic mixed nuts tray featuring roasted pistachios, cashews and almonds is a healthy option. For added sweetness, your guests will go nuts over our sugar-free chocolate covered almonds!
During the fall season, Detroit is popular for its pressed cider, apples and piping-hot donuts. Celebrate Detroit’s diverse cider mills and orchards with our beautiful fresh fruit baskets complete with juicy red Fuji apples and crispy green Granny smith apples, as well as assorted roasted and chocolate covered nuts. Best of all, our “Cheers” gift basket includes a bottle of Sonoma Sparkling Pear Cider! For an added treat, Detroit donut-lovers will delight in our “Deluxe Donut and Scone” sampler or our delicate donut holes. This fall, everyone will fall in love with our Detroit gift baskets full of fresh fruit, sparkling cider and delicious donuts.
