Just last week, our staff gathered in anticipation of Valentine's Day. We munched on chocolates and chips (sweet and salty, my favorite) and wrote cards for our office mates. The only catch was, each had to feature our funniest, whackiest food pun. Challenge accepted. This morning, those cards reappeared, tucked into tiny plastic parcels distributed across everyone's desk. Each bag contained chocolates and sour patch kids and cute scratch and sniff cards that smell like donuts and pizzas and cookies (yum!!). Tucked between these treats were customized Valentine’s Day cards written by our staff. They featured food puns that were too good not to share. We’ve compiled some of the best ones below:
Victoria, Director of Finance, was lucky enough to receive two (she's very popular)! Which would flatter you more? Personally, I think there's nothing better than being compared to a cup of morning coffee.
Strong pun, ominous message. Sophie, our Growth Marketing Coordinator, didn't know quite how to feel about this one. Hmmm.
This message from Merrill has got me feeling all sorts of warm and fuzzy. You know, I am unbeatable if I just brie-leave I am.
Joanna, our Managing Editor, received this caffeinated card. So sweet!
All the cards inspired an in-office brainstorm. We've been slinging puns all morning. Here are some of the best:
Valerio is a freelance food writer, editor, researcher and cook. He grew up in his parent's Italian restaurants covered in pizza flour and drinking a Shirley Temple a day. Since, he's worked as a cheesemonger in New York City and a paella instructor in Barcelona. He now lives in Berlin, Germany where he's most likely to be found eating shawarma.
