“In a pickle,” wondering what to do, this Valentines Day?
Instead of chocolates, or (predictable) flowers, this year, show your love with a pickle. It could be a big dill.
This year, you could actually get gherkins, make them beautifully displayed, and wrapped up in a bouquet… unless it could come off as a bit jarring. Nobody wants a sour puss!
The idea comes from Grillo’s Pickles, in Boston. They say the briny treat is better than candy, more creative than flowers. “We know there are a lot of pickle lovers out there, [who] would love nothing more, than to get a Valentine’s Day gift, [which is] loaded with their favorite snack,” reveals CEO Travis Grillo to TODAY Food. Hard to keep a lid on such an unusual idea.
