Detailed by Nintendo, the popular video game company has entered a collaboration with Edible, a fruit bouquet company, to make a handful of Mario Kart themed products.
For those unfamiliar, a fruit bouquet is a collection of fruit pieces attached to sticks. Bundled together into a bucket of sorts, the combinations of bright colors and cut-out shapes provide a highly decorative take on eating fruit. Edible has released 15 different Mario Kart inspired options, including the Rainbow Road Arrangement, the Power Up Platter, and Mario Kart Duo. Each one has a selection of star and mushroom shaped (not flavored) fruit and other treats, organized in an appealing fashion.
Nick Chavez, Nintendo of Americas Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, had this to say.
By partnering with Edible, we hope youll be able to add some Nintendo-themed festivities to your day. With summer kicking into high gear, its a great opportunity to give that next milestone in life an extra boost, whether its in honor of winning a big race, or simply sharing a smile with someone you love.
The various Mario Kart options are available right now on the Edible website. Prices range from $25 to $100. Each purchase will also award buyers with Nintendo Reward Platinum points.
As fun as this all seems, were not super into fruit bouquets, ourselves. We may have to give this one a pass.
