Fruit Guys, Snacks, Snack box SAN FRANCISCO -- The FruitGuys, a service that delivers fresh fruit to homes and offices, is now offering SmileSnacks boxes, which contain a week's worth of fresh fruit and natural snacks that employees keep at their desks.

Each SmileSnack pack provides two snacks a day, including eight servings of whole fruit and three servings of "healthy" snacks. Employees can set up a weekly, biweekly, monthly or one-time delivery and select desired varieties based upon what produce is in season.

Fruit is packed in a compact, sturdy shipping box to protect it during transport; the box doubles as a convenient storage station in the patron's work area.

"In the past 15 years, The FruitGuys has helped thousands of companies provide employer-paid healthy produce," said Chris Mittelstaedt, founder and chief executive of The FruitGuys. "The [new] SmileSnack empowers employees who don't have access to complimentary corporate wellness programs the ability to create a healthy snack station at their desk.

A single SmileSnack box costs $17.75; a group discount of $12.75 a box is available for orders of five. An organic version is available for $19.95 each or $16.95 each for group orders.

Each SmileSnack includes a personal nutrition chart that helps track consumption and eliminates the guesswork of portion control. The tracker also incorporates water intake and activity breaks to help employees keep personal wellness top-of-mind throughout the workweek.

The FruitGuys began delivering fruit to offices in San Francisco in 1998 and now delivers fresh seasonal fruit from local farms to thousands of businesses nationwide.
