Officially Become Two Peas In A Pod This Valentine's Day!

 
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, love birds across the nation will be marking the most romantic day of the year in style, searching for the ultimate gift to treat that special someone.

But if you’re unsure on what to get your loved one this Valentine’s Day, look no further, as you and your partner can quite literally become two peas in a pod, courtesy of Yes Peas!, the UK’s leading campaign dedicated to championing the humble frozen pea .

Returning for 2024 after popular demand, Yes Peas! is allowing you to symbolically name two peas within the same pod after you and your significant other – what better way to show a true gesture of love?

Alongside having your own symbolically named peas in a pod, individuals who register will receive a digital Valentine’s Day card completely free of charge.

Peas are generally sown from late February through to July in the UK, making it the perfect time to show your grand gesture by registering your names.

Holly Jones, Crop Association Executive at the British Growers Association comments:
“Valentine’s Day serves as the ultimate occasion to show that special someone how much you care, so we wanted to offer pea enthusiasts the chance to take their love for peas to the next level by having their very own named pea pods!

“It’s no surprise that we’re a nation of true pea-lovers, with the average Brit eating around 9,000 peas a year! The UK is also 90% self-sufficient in pea production, so by getting involved you’ll be supporting British farmers and the industry.”


To register your very own named peas in a pod, simply visit www.peas.org/two-peas-in-a-pod/, where you can also find a range of pea-inspired recipes, as well as further information about the Yes Peas! campaign.
