Next Stop: Logo Pickles!

Square watermelons? Old news. Heart-shaped cucumbers? Now that’s a noteworthy promotional food item! Because, like me, you surely must know more, they are apparently grown by a co-op of nine women in Chiba, which is a Japanese prefecture just outside of Tokyo where my grandma lives. And, while square watermelons are practical (they can be boxed and shipped more easily than round ones), these are better because they’re just more fun. Logo pickles can’t be that far off, but it might be best to stick with a logo pickle stress ball for now. (via Trends in Japan )
