What is a Scorpion Valentine?
A real-life (but not living), edible scorpion in a strawberry guava coating* inspired by Topo Chico Hard Seltzer’s Strawberry Guava hard seltzer flavor.
Why did Topo Chico Hard Seltzer want to create a Scorpion Valentine ?
As a brand that lives to provide the unexpected, we’re excited to bring folks a different way to celebrate this traditionally ~red-roses and romance~-focused holiday. What better way to do so, than by tapping into our southwestern roots with a Scorpion Valentine.
How are the Scorpion Valentines made?
We partnered with trusted, food-licensed vendors to secure and safety-proof edible scorpions, adding our signature strawberry guava flavor for a sweet sting. The Scorpion Valentines are ethically sourced and hand-crafted, made-to-order.
Is the Scorpion Valentine safe to eat?
Yes. Scorpion stingers are no longer poisonous once exposed to heat and are widely consumed as a part of Mexican cuisine. In Durango, Mexico, you might find some since they’re common in local taquerias.
Store properly in a cool, dry, dark place away from heat, moisture, and strong scents. Consumption within six months of opening package recommended. Prepared and packaged under USDA-approved ServSafe Food Handling guidelines and in accordance with FDA regulations. Do not consume if the product appears to be opened or damaged.
Is the Scorpion Valentine edible?
