There always seems to be some kind of new trend circulating the internet. This time, it involves Instagram, an avocado, and a priceless diamond ring — for a new trend called “avocado proposals.”

More and more millennials are choosing to use avocados as ring boxes during marriage proposals to their significant others.

According to Today, Amsterdam-based food stylist, cookbook author, and avocado-enthusiast Colette Dike posted a photo of the “avo box” on February 10, 2018. Soon, more and more Instagram users followed suit with their own avocado proposals!

The unique proposals are gaining traction among young couples everywhere. Since avocados are often considered a favorite food among millennials, it’s no surprise that the green fruits are being incorporated into major milestones for this generation.

The key to this strange yet aesthetically pleasing trend is to remove the pit from the avocado and swap in the ring of your choosing. Once you separate both halves of the avocado, the ring inside makes an unexpected statement!

Would you ever propose to someone using an avocado? Or better yet, would you ever say “yes” to an avocado proposal?

Check out some Instagram users’ interesting avocado proposals in the video below, and please SHARE if you would ever consider using an out-of-the-ordinary ring box!
