Bouquets of flowers have always been associated with romance - they're pretty, fragrant but, let's face it, entirely predictable.
Plus the novelty of being gifted a pretty bunch of flowers quickly wears off as they inevitably begin to wilt and die, only to be thrown away soon after purchase. Not so romantic-sounding now, eh?Food bouquets are all the rage these days. In fact, this bride had her bridesmaids walk down the aisle with donut bouquets:
Anyway, with Valentine's Day fast approaching, you don't have to abandon the bouquet idea entirely. You could, for instance, give your other half a bouquet of baby back ribs, courtesy of Boston Market. If your partner is a real foodie, they'll appreciate the sentiment and the originality.
The limited-edition rib bouquet will only be available on February 14 but can be found in every Boston Market location across the states.[[imagecaption|| Credit: Boston Market]]
"When we first toyed with the idea of adding Baby Back Ribs to our menu, we knew we wanted to focus on flavor and quality," said Chef Tony Fialho, director of culinary innovation at Boston Market, per Markets Insider.
Fialho continues: "That's why we're slow-cooking our ribs to fall-off-the-bone perfection before smothering them in Sweet Baby Ray's famous hickory barbecue sauce. We just launched Baby Back Ribs a few weeks ago and our guests are loving them! On their own, our Baby Back Ribs are sure to delight barbeque enthusiasts everywhere, but when packaged in a delectable bouquet, they're the picture-perfect Valentine's Day gift to help anyone delight – and feed – that special someone."
Participating Boston Market locations are also inviting patrons to a romantic dinner for two on Valentine's Day. Expect a delicious meal made up of two half orders of ribs, two sides per person and two pieces of cornbread, all for $20. A coupon for the deal will be available online at BostonMarket.com.
If you're thinking of purchasing a baby back rib bouquet, it'll set you back $29.99.
