ROMANTICS this Valentine's Day best wake up and smell the bacon because you can now buy it in a bouquet.
SAY IT WITH BACON: Why buy flowers when you can buy bacon?
The bacon roses come from rasher connoisseurs Logan Rae and Kimmie Hruda. Logan made the treat for a co-worker as a gift last year and discovered a niche in the market. "I made bacon roses as a birthday gift and delivered it to a busy office last January," Logan said. "By February, employees and my co-workers were requesting them for Valentine's Day." When the requests got too much, Logan, 21, was joined by pal Kimmie, 28. The pair, from Florida, created Bacon Boxes.
The boxes include the luxury bacon treats and have proved extremely popular for the romantic holiday.
"We've received a lot of excitement in response to our products – it's a totally new product unavailable anywhere else, we couldn't be more proud," added Logan.
"We've been referred to as the Louis Vuitton of bacon and generally as the 'best in bacon' so often that it became our punchline."
The duo added that they believe in sustainable practices that are in "balance with the Earth and its natural systems".
The aim of the products is to help celebrate big events in a memorable way.
They spend more than 100 hours a week creating the product to make it the "most impressive bacon you'll ever have".
The meaty idea has proved a hit on social media.
One Twitter user wrote: " Bacon valentine roses – great idea for breakfast in bed."
Another summed up her thoughts with: "True love is a bacon bouquet".
