Chip in and get a ro­man­tic gift with a dif­fer­ence

Gloucestershire Echo - - NEWS -

A FISH and chip shop may have just come up with one of the best al­ter­na­tive gifts for St Valen­tine’s Day.

On Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 8, Chel­tenham’s award-win­ning fish and chip shop Simp­sons cel­e­brated Na­tional Potato Lovers Day with mouth-wa­ter­ing heart-shaped chips.

But now they’ve out­done them­selves.

For the sec­ond year run­ning, Simp­sons will be sell­ing their quirky fish and chip bou­quets.

The flo­ral foodie ar­range­ment con­sists of a dozen hand­crafted potato roses along­side some tasty leaf­shaped fish gou­jon, all of which is hand-tied and beau­ti­fully pre­sented in tra­di­tional news­pa­per.

The world’s first fish and chip bou­quet was so pop­u­lar last year that Simp­sons re­ceived or­ders from as far away as Corn­wall and Scot­land.

One fish and chip lover even ended up with this mouth­wa­ter­ing cre­ation as their wed­ding bou­quet.

The foodie ar­range­ment is only avail­able on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 14 and are the brain­child of Simp­sons’ founder Bonny Ritchie.

She said: “Ev­ery­one knows that the real way to a per­son’s heart is through their stom­ach, so we’ve put a lit­tle twist on the tra­di­tional bou­quet of a dozen red roses by mak­ing them en­tirely ed­i­ble.”
