"Will you marry me?"

February has come to its end and this year it has revealed a love trend that is worth being aware of: avocado proposals.

Bells ringing are a thing this year, so are millennials and their own special trends!

How did it happen?

It all started back in 2015 when during a trip to Bali and the islands around it, Ben Stevenson had the idea to make a wedding proposal to his girlfriend Taylor Selby using an avocado as a ring box. The young woman was amazed and shared her happiness through an Instagram post that became viral. Instagram and Twitter people kept sharing these images and following their wedding journey.

From that moment on, people went crazy and turned this unique gesture into a trendy fact, spread all over the world.

Sometime later, September 2016, Randy Gonzalez proposed to his then-girlfriend Kimberlee Brosnan on West Beach in Connecticut with a ring inside an avocado. 

Gonzalez had a pretty original idea. According to an interview with Cosmopolitan, the young man met his sweet-half before she had ever tried the exotic fruit. "Are you kidding? Give it a go, and if you don't like it, I'll eat the rest." he said, remembering the first time they met. They started dating after a week, and some years later he asked the fatal question.

Is that a thing, though?

A British supermarket has launched a new category of avocados on their shelves, labeled with a sticker saying "perfect for proposals".

The whole bizarre project sticks to a specific guide to be followed. It focuses on the avocado's color, texture and consistency. In this way, anyone can use an avocado as a ring box for their memorable once-in-a-life-time-romantic moment.

So yes, apparently it is a thing. Both an ordinary and extravagant millennial stuff.

Is there any other trend?

By this time, it is old news that avocados have become one of the most popular millennials obsessions. However, avocados never stop stupefying with their vogue and mania. 

A lot of trends are out there, from avocado burger buns to lattes served inside avocados, from avocado roses to avocado fries, avocado popsicles and so much more.

Why are avocados so popular?

Healthy eating

Although avocados are highly fatty, they are considered healthy fruits, due to the nature of their fats (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated) and nutritious elements inside them.

Social media

Young people have a subtle admiration for some sort of pastel-colored items and minimalist elements. Pictures with this kind of aesthetics usually play a major role in millennials and hipster culture, which has become a popular trend in various part of the world. Avocado's green and shape are greatly appreciated by young people, and taking a picture of this fruit can be an excuse to get more "likes" or "hearts" on social media.

The taste

This exotic fruit has a particular soft scent and a peculiar creamy taste. Those features are not very common, especially in Western culture cuisines. Discovering this new taste might enlighten someone's sensitive taste buds!

Avocado, you do amaze!

Avocados are definitely a trademark for millennials, and they will certainly make history. Give them a try and enjoy them, until they are gone!
