People Are Actually Using Avocados To Propose On Instagram

February 20, 2018
By: Nathan Vicar (WYCD) -- It appears the avocado trend has taken on an entirely new role … as a ring box! Yes, you read that correctly. (Some) lovebirds are proposing to their one-and-only with avocados, and the trend is making Instagrammers green with envy. On Feb. 10, Amsterdam-based food stylist, cookbook author and avocado-enthusiast Colette Dike posted a photo of the “avo box,” and wrote, “Tag someone who should propose like this.” And thousands of people did. Another Instagrammer, Matt Caron, posted a photo of a pitless avocado with the ring sunken into the center and wrote, “Every hippie girl’s dream proposal.” Another Instagram user posted this. If the way to a person's heart is through their belly, then these romantics are certainly on track.
