Imagine a bouquet of roses that you can actually eat. Yes, that’s right, you can have your flowers, and eat them, too!
Recently I was contacted by Ms. Bridget Graham, of Sweetable Eatables whose unique company makes hand made chocolate and candy flower or plant arrangements that mimic real live flowers or plants. They are incredibly detailed — you will think they’re the real thing until you position your nostrils for a whiff of the floral scents, and realize with delight, that they smell like rich, delicious, chocolate!
Bridget, who majored in psychology, has been the owner and creator of Sweetable Eatables for several years. Apparently, she was looking for a gift for her hard-to-buy-for mother who was allergic to flowers, so she decided to create her own, patent the idea, and make it a business.
…and what a business it is! The flowers are incredible detailed and sophisticated. They’re edible works of art that you will find difficult to want to bite into because they are astoundingly beautiful. Her candy flowers are available in a wide range of different flavors, such as cherry, grape, watermelon, peach, mango, and tons of others. The chocolate flowers (the ones I personally tried) are made of high quality chocolate. For example, the white Calla Lilly I received was created in white chocolate, but Bridget also uses white chocolate tinted with coloring and flavoring to make different colored flowers. For vegan customers, she uses dark chocolate and she also offers items in milk chocolate, butterscotch chocolate, sugar free chocolate, candies, and more.
I received a chocolate rose in full bloom so realistic, I really did think it was the real thing until I picked it up and smelled it. My one rose came packaged in a clear, cello bag tied with a pink metallic ribbon and festooned with a collar of rich brocade ribbon on it’s black velvet-covered wooden stem. Bridget also does flowers with edible stems if that’s what a customer wants. I don’t want to eat it (although it smells wonderful) because I don’t want to ruin it’s beauty.
However, I shared the mini bouquets of red flowers shown in this photo. The chocolate was rich and sweet and creamy. I really did feel like I was eating the proverbial daisies!!!
Clearly, Valentines Day lends itself to a purchase of these precious petaled creations, but imagine how awesome they’d be on a wedding cake, or for wedding favors, for a birthday, or for someone special “just because,”
,,,and the price? More affordable than you might suspect: A rough price for the single rose is $9.99. The cost also depends upon the type of ribbon used. Boxes start from $10 and up. The box I received with the white calla lily and the four red floral nosegays would be about $19.99 and I have some cheaper single roses but it all depends on the ribbon and height.
