Beef Jerky Outlet Rolls Out New Beef Box Bouquets

Beef Bouquets are a Healthy, Fun Valentine’s Day Gift Idea

KODAK, Tenn. (February 2018) – Beef Jerky Outlet is debuting the Beef Box Bouquet just in time for Valentine’s Day. The Beef Box Bouquet is available now at participating Beef Jerky Outlet locations and online from the local store website. Each bouquet is presented in a unique beer can shaped glass with a special red koozie wrap. The bouquet is made up of Beef Jerky Outlet’s Original Flavor Snack Sticks topped with heart-shaped Original Recipe jerky “petals” and one in the shape of the iconic Beef Jerky Outlet Bull. The finishing touch is that it all comes packaged in a beautiful wooden “Keeper of Drinks Remembered” cap and cork catcher that lets a couple save mementoes of their special memories together.

“We are excited to offer our customers a fun, new option for a Valentine’s Day present,” says Paul Lyons, President of Beef Jerky Outlet. “Our tasty Beef Box Bouquet is a unique way to show the meat-lover in your life that you care. Not to mention, jerky is a much healthier option than many of the traditional Valentine’s Day treats.”

Beef jerky is a high-protein, low-fat portable snack that is growing in popularity. In 2017, IRI, a Chicago-based market research firm reports:

Dried meat snacks saw a 12 percent increase in e-commerce sales
Portable snacks, such as jerky, were a growing theme within the healthier snack categories
Protein was a driving factor for consumer purchases

In addition to the Beef Box Bouquet, Beef Jerky Outlet is home to more than 100 varieties of premium jerky including family-favorites like Prime Rib, Cherry Maple, Honey BBQ and Teriyaki. For the more adventurous eaters, Beef Jerky Outlet also offers exotic jerkies such as kangaroo, venison and even alligator.

Valentines Day Gift for Him

With the 14th of February soon approaching and our yearly attempts to step up the kind of surprises we give to our significant other, no wonder finding something special can be so difficult.

There are some unique gift ideas that beat the usual bottle of Gin or the pair of trainers he wanted. Why not try an experience day? Is he a petrol-head? or an adrenaline junkie? or perhaps you want to treat both of you out to something out there.

Trackdays.co.uk have a selection of packages that can be chosen from. There’s a range of modern, high-tech super cars to take for a spin such as the Ferrari 458, Lamborghini Gallardo, Nissan GT-R’s. Perhaps a few laps in a more refined beast from the likes of the Aston Martin DB9.

If it’s outside the realm of race cars, oddball Ariel Atoms, drifting in American muscle cars and speeding through a choice of tracks throughout the UK, there are a number of alternatives found via the top experience days provider. Why not, go for an off-road drive from a 4×4 in the scenic landscape of North Yorkshire, jumping in the front of the giant Leyland DAF army truck or even roll around in a Monster Truck.

It doesn’t end just there, there are so many other experiences you can treat both of yourselves to. Perhaps you would like to get kitted out in camouflage and shoot strangers with paintballs or dive straight into a set of activities that are not for the faint of hearted. Try tumbling down steep hills at 30mph inside a giant inflatable ball or dropping off a palm-sweating 300ft Bungee jump. Go a level higher, and get your partner to free-falling through the air on a skydiving adventure.

 

The cookery course takes place in the Eureka Kitchen at the Michelin starred Simpsons restaurant in Birmingham, every Wednesday and Saturday.

Eureka Kitchen at Simpsons Restaurant with Luke Tipping & Nathan Eades creating mouth watering dishes

The course includes refreshments on arrival, a cookery demonstration by one of Simpsons chefs, a couple of hours where the cooks pair up to prepare lunch, champagne in the restaurant’s beautiful lounge and a three course lunch with wines selected by the sommelier.

Everyone who takes part goes home with a booklet with all the recipes so the couples can recreate their Michelin starred dishes in their own homes – the gift that keeps on giving!

HOW TO LET LOVE BLOOM FOR LONGER THIS VALENTINE’S

· UK water engineers reveal that filtered tap water keeps your Valentine’s bouquet fresher for up to 7 days longer than unfiltered water*

According to UK hydration experts, Aqua Optima, the secret of doing away with floppy flowers, droopy dahlias and rotting roses, is simply to use filtered tap water.

Aqua Optima, one of the leading manufacturers of water filter jugs, reveals that many of the impurities found in tap water can shorten the life of cut flowers by affecting their ability to hydrate properly. Using filtered tap water can dramatically improve the preservation of cut flowers, allowing loved ones to enjoy the bouquet they deserve for longer.

Bacteria is the main culprit for shortening cut flower life. Water filters remove the organic material that bacteria can use to develop faster, therefore using filtered water can delay the wilting process.

Tim Ackerley, Engineering Manager, at Aqua Optima explains: “A plant’s root system serves as a filter to limit dirt, micro-organisms and chemicals from entering and blocking its ability to absorb water. When the flower is cut off from the root system, it loses this vital filter. It is important, therefore, to always start with clean, filtered water in order to protect and preserve the flower.”

Other key tips to keep love blooming for longer:

· Despite roses being the most popular romantic bouquet, people in soft water areas are recommended to filter their water to lengthen the life of their flowers.

· Sodium can be present in higher concentrations in soft water and is toxic to roses and carnations, so will reduce the life of these flowers.

· Always use warm (38-44 degrees C) filtered water as most flowers take in warm water more efficiently than cold. **

Aqua Optima is spearheading filtration innovation by designing water filter jugs and affordable cartridges that fit the majority of water jugs in the UK and is now stocked in Tesco, Argos and Amazon to name just a few.

Aqua Optima Director, Nigel Wheeler, said: “Water is better when filtered and we want people (and flowers!) to stay hydrated with the purest water. Our jugs improve taste, reduce heavy metal from old pipework and remove impurities. With increasing consumer awareness, water filtration systems are fast becoming a must-have item for every kitchen.”

Aqua Optima is launching a #filteredwithlove national campaign to help people be happy, healthy and hydrated with pure water.
