You Can Now Buy a Pink Pineapple

People are always figuring out odd ways to hack food and posting them on social media. What you might not expect is a brand to do it. Pink pineapples? Why not?

Del Monte is responsible for the new blush-hued fruit, and it’s available online. Officially called the Pink Glow Pineapple, it originally made headlines four years ago when the brand’s request to create it was approved by the FDA.

Back then, the fruit was called the rosé pineapple. It was created by genetically modifying the enzymes in the fruit. Now (finally), they’re on the market!

In the U.S., you can purchase your very own pink pineapples from two online retailers: Melissa’s (serving the West Coast) and Tropical Fruit Box (serving the East).

Unfortunately, if you figured this colorful fruit would cost the same as a regular old pineapple, think again. One of these pretty-in-pink pineapples will set you back $50.

But, if you need a shot of extra fun in your next mixed drink, or you just can’t resist new food trends, order yours today!
