The Ultimate Gag Gift? This Valentine’s Day, You Can Send Your Ex a Real Scorpion for Only $6.99

This Valentine’s Day, Topo Chico Hard Seltzer is offering you the opportunity to send your ex a real scorpion.

Don’t worry — the scorpion isn’t alive or dangerous in any way. It is a real, ethically sourced scorpion, and it’s edible. Plus, it’s dipped in a strawberry guava coating to give it some flavor.

While the scorpions aren’t quite as inexpensive as the $2.14 cacti Topo Chico sent to your exes last year, they’re still quite affordable at $6.99.

The Scorpion Valentines go on sale 8 a.m. EST Friday. Visit to place your order, and Topo Chico Hard Seltzer will deliver the scorpion. Plus, each order grants the buyer a 50% rebate off one 12-pack of Topo Chico Hard Seltzer, which usually costs about $17. So, if you use the rebate, you’re essentially spending $7 to send a scorpion, plus save $8.50 on drinks. There’s an argument to be made you’re profiting!

If you don’t have an ex worth sending a scorpion to, this would make for a pretty hilarious gag gift for a friend — especially since the scorpion comes in a heart-shaped box. Imagine the look on the face of your friend (or ex) when they open the box expecting chocolates and find… a scorpion?
