Marilyn Monroe may have told us diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but all a modern relationship requires is a good ol’ avocado. We knew millennials’ love of avocado would reach a tipping point, but we definitely didn’t expect this: avocado proposals.
“I will gladly accept a proposal with an avocado. I will also gladly accept any proposal or avocado,” tweeted @jonathanjoelmus, strong in his belief that the way to the heart is through the stomach.
The creative, unusual hack involves halving the fruit, removing the stone, and pressing a ring into the hollow.
Others have taken to ordering Custom Avocados (the website features an “is this real?” tab, if you need more reassurance, and we don’t blame you if you do). The company specialises in applying graphics to avocados.
“After the proposal, we had delicious snacks for days. It was perfect!” said Cody W in a testimonial.
British supermarket ASDA have even started printing “perfect for proposals” stickers to follow the trend.
However, some people are less convinced.
“Can I get an avocado proposal minus the ring? Basically I just want free avocados,” said @AlxandraMcNeill.
So, is it an avoca-do or an avoca-no from you?
