Spoil Your Valentine With a Bouquet of Beef Jerky Flowers

For some hungry Valentines, nothing says "romance" like cured meat. This February 14, forego flowers and send your loved one a bouquet of edible daisies or roses, sculpted from teriyaki, peppered, or original flavor beef jerky.

As The Kitchn reports, a company called Say It With Beef sells the savory blossoms, which come in pint glasses or beer mugs instead of vases. They’re billed as "brouquets"—a masculine alternative to flowers—but Say It With Beef says their product is technically for everyone, since "ladies like meat, too."

Sadly, Say It With Beef doesn’t deploy couriers to hand-deliver the bouquets. The flowers arrive via mail, packed in an airtight bag for extra freshness, and recipients arrange them in the accompanying glass themselves. The jerky flowers are shelf-stable, so they should remain fresh for one to two weeks if they’re stored in a sealed container. If you plan on leaving the gift on display for admiring visitors, Say It With Beef recommends consuming the bouquet within a week after arrival.

If the way to your Valentine’s heart is indeed through their stomach, Say It With Beef’s bouquets cost $35, and are available for purchase online.

After a bit of controversy over its way of aggregating news feeds and some questionable content censoring policies, it’s nice to have Facebook roll out a feature everyone can agree on: allowing you to order food without leaving the social media site.

According to a press release, Facebook says that the company decided to begin offering food delivery options after realizing that many of its users come to the social media hub to rate and discuss local eateries. Rather than hop from Facebook to the restaurant or a delivery service, you’ll be able to stay within the app and select from a menu of food choices. Just click “Order Food” from the Explore menu on a desktop interface or under the “More” option on Android or iOS devices. There, you’ll be presented with options that will accept takeout or delivery orders, as well as businesses participating with services like Delivery.com or EatStreet.

If you need to sign up and create an account with Delivery.com or Jimmy John’s, for example, you can do that without leaving Facebook. The feature is expected to be available nationally, effective immediately.
