Edible Wild Hibiscus Flowers

I swear I'm not making this up! You can buy a jar of edible wild hibiscus flowers from (of all places) the Think Geek website. Each 8.8 ounce jar has at least eleven full flowers; the only other ingredients besides hibiscus are cane sugar and water. The website, being all geeky and all, describes them as looking like baby Cthulhu, but they also say they're delicious and taste just a little bit like raspberry.

You have to admit they would certainly make a most unusual stocking stuffer! They'd do pretty well for Valentine's Day, too, don't you think? I love the way it looks at the bottom of the champagne glass....

What: Edible Wild Hibiscus Flowers
Where: Think Geek website
How much (as of today's post): $9.99 (plus shipping)
