British luxury department store Fortnum and Mason is offering a unique product for Valentine’s Day that is sure to have religious fundamentalists in an uproar. Alongside Biblical-themed “Adam and Eve” tea biscuits, the store is also offering gay and lesbian versions.
“Adam and Steve” and “Eve and Naimh” biscuits are also available on the store’s website. Naimh is pronounced Neeve.
“Delicately hand-iced exclusively for Fortnum’s, these gingerbread biscuits are baked to perfection to make a most memorable and, indeed, delicious gift for your loved one this Valentine’s Day,” according to the site’s description.
The cookies retail for £15.00 or about $20 for a tin. While Williams & Sonoma are the authorized American retailers for the brand, they do not carry the special biscuits on their website.
“Fortnum’s has always been for everyone, with excellent taste, and we are delighted with the response to this collection. We can’t think of better biscuits to enjoy with a cup of tea this Valentine’s Day,” the company told Pink News UK.
