If you’re looking for a unique and quirky gift for your loved one this Valentine’s Day, consider a pickle bouquet. The pickle bouquet is a fun and tasty alternative to traditional flower bouquets. Grillo’s Pickles, a brand whose pickled products can be found in grocery stores, offers a make-your-own-pickle-bouquet kit for just $20. The kit includes a Grillo’s “free jar” coupon, 15 wooden skewers, a card and cardholder, tissue paper and filler, a custom Valentine’s Day label for a 32oz Grillo’s container and more. You can even add on extras like cheese cubes, cherry tomatoes and fresh dill.
The pickle bouquet was made famous by Grillo’s Pickles. Founder Travis Grillo says, “Not only is a pickle bouquet more beautiful than a dozen red roses, and healthier than a standard box of chocolate, it’s also far more creative”.
If you’re feeling crafty, you can also make your own pickle bouquet at home. Pick up a selection of your favorite pickles, such as dill, hot chips, bread-and-butter, and a variety of spears and whole pickles. Pierce the pickles using bamboo kebab skewers to create a “stem” for each pickle. Once you have a sizable selection, arrange the speared pickles in a glass vase.
So, if you’re looking for a unique and tasty way to show your love this Valentine’s Day, consider a pickle bouquet. It’s sure to be a hit with your sweetheart!
