Valentine's Day: Nothing says romance like a potato-chip 'broquet'

Thousands of roses and boxes of chocolates will be exchanged this Valentine's Day, but maybe it's time to rise above the cliche. Man up. Roll up your sleeves. Kick the sweets to the curb and toss those fresh flowers in favor of something called the "broquet." 

What, you ask, is a "broquet"? It's a bouquet of "flowers" made of crunchy potato chips. Because nothing says romance like salty potato chips and fingers ready for licking.

Ruffles is encouraging people to create their own "broquet" and share them on the brand's Facebook page. If your Valentine is someone who appreciates a good ol' crunchy potato chip, consider the broquet. Or if you simply forgot to order flowers, you can make a broquet in minutes. It does have a nice ring to it.

Let the bromances flourish!
