This Pickle Bouquet Is a Tasty Alternative to Flowers for Valentine’s Day

Forget the flowers. Give 'em a pickle bouquet!

Roses and chocolates are so last Valentine’s Day. Want to show your sweetheart how much you really care? Surprise them with a pickle bouquet for Valentine’s Day…or really, any day they need some cheering up.

What’s the Story Behind the Pickle Bouquet?

The pickle bouquet was made famous by Grillo’s Pickles, a brand whose pickled products can be found in grocery stores. 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.”

We agree!

Edible bouquets are becoming increasingly popular, and not just with fruit. Even donuts and bacon have made their way to a vase-friendly form.

How Do I Send a Pickle Bouquet?

If your SO (or bestie) loves their pickles, this is the gift for them. Starting January 18, you can hop on to Grillo’s website and grab a make-your-own-pickle-bouquet kit for just $20—all trimmings included! Each kit includes a Grillo’s “free jar” coupon (so you can make more bouquets), 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. Talk about the fastest way to the heart.

You can even make your own crunchy, tangy pickles at home to really show your love.
