It’s prom season once again and this year, teens who really want to impress their dates can ditch the traditional flower corsage for something totally different: a croissant corsage.
The edible baked goods accessory is being created by Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen, home of the popular honey butter croissant, and Dallas-based florist Petals and Stems. The idea was inspired by a text exchange that went viral back in 2017, when a high schooler mistakenly asked his prom date if she wanted a croissant instead of a corsage. The auto correct mishap apparently made a big impact and teens wore the pastry to prom.
This year’s Croissant Corsage offer is limited to the Dallas area and for $20, you get the snack, surrounded by baby’s breath and your choice of rose color. Plus, the restaurant is giving away a $10 Cheddar’s gift card with it, so it’s not a bad deal. Wearing a croissant corsage may not make prom “butter than ever” but it’ll make a great story.
