Beef jerky bouquet is the Valentine’s Day gift you didn’t know you wanted — until now




Nothing says I love you like a bouquet of… beef jerky. Well, maybe to someone who isn’t easily impressed by a dozen of roses.

This Valentine’s Day, retailers are stepping outside of those heart-shaped boxes filled with assorted chocolates and offering weirdly amazing food-inspired arrangements. From teriyaki-flavored beef jerky to a bright bundle of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and bite-sized donuts covered in sprinkles, your loved one will find these gift ideas super sweet.

Our mouths started watering the very moment we saw The Manly Man Company’s beef jerky bouquet. Made from a blend of beef, pork and spices, the chewy, flower-shaped dried meat is available in four different flavors — original, hot, teriyaki and mixed. It also comes beautifully arranged inside a pint glass that you can later use to pour your favorite cold beer into.

It may be marketed to men, but we think it will make for a tasty Valentine’s Day gift for anyone on your list.


Florida town imposes $50 per day fine for growing edible plants in front yards




Pink flamingos, garden gnomes and trolls? No problem. Tomatoes, kale and spinach? Not so much. 

Growing your own food may be as American as apple pie, but it’s a no-no for gardeners who happen to live in Miami Shores and want to plant veggies in their own front yard. 

Hermine Ricketts and Laurence Carroll are asking the Florida Supreme Court to resolve a long-running dispute with the Village of Miami Shores, which passed an ordinance four years ago banning front-yard vegetable gardens like the one the couple had maintained for nearly two decades. The ordinance also allowed the village to impose fines of up to $50 per day for noncompliance. 

Ricketts and Carroll turned to the state high court, which hasn’t decided yet whether it will accept the case, after two lower courts sided with Miami Shores and upheld the regulation.

The Most Popular Movie Theater Candy the Year You Were Born 


When did your favorite movie treat hit theaters?

Half the fun of going to the movies is picking out a treat to munch on at the concession stand, and the candy selection is usually way more exciting than typical popcorn. That glowing glass case has held some spectacular movie snacks over the years—see when your favorites hit theaters.

1920: Jujyfruits
Do these maybe, sorta taste like plastic? Sure, but even after you’ve finished a box of these oddly shaped chews, you can spend the remainder of the movie picking the remnants out of your teeth—bonus? Fun fact: Up until 1999 the green, lime pieces were mint-flavored.

1927: Raisinets
Chocolate-covered raisins are fairly healthy compared to most movie theater snacks, and they still manage to taste amazing. The box even advertises them as a source of antioxidants but...let’s not get carried away, Nestlé.
