You wouldn't wait your trip to be miserable because of your constantly growling stomach, would you? No way! So what better place to go to for this purpose than the Fruits of Brightvale shop?

The moment you walk in, you'll be greeted by a kind looking Green Acara standing by the counter, waiting to assist you in your purchases. But that's not all that will greet you! The smell of the fruit seems to just hit you in face, like a fight in the Battledome. Sweet, sour, tangy, and even rancid smells may meet your nose! And not only is your nose assaulted, so are your eyes! Vividly hued fruits are everywhere! Lime green, bright orange, electric blue and neon pink are everywhere! Such bright and beautiful colors, true edible art! There are so many great options to try when you're here, you might just spend all your money in this one shop!

To start the day, a big breakfast with a tall glass of Magenorb Juice on the side is the best thing you could wish for. Though it's sometimes too sour or sweet, there's always a chance that it'll be just right! What's life without a bit of excitement? For lunch, why not try a Skeem Jam sandwich? Tangy and sweet, you'll never be able to eat one of mom's Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches ever again!

It'll jazz up your neohome in a matter of seconds, and it's great conversation starter.

This is a great way to spiff up your home!
