Up Close with I Love Produce Monster Garlic

One might wonder what Elvira, the Mistress of the Dark, Halloween, and garlic all have in common, but the answer is quite simple: OctCLOVErfest, a promotion of garlicky-themed Halloween treats and activities centered on promoting I Love Produce’s Monster Garlic.

The size is perfect not only for roasting whole—excuse my salivation—but great for decorating, too! With Halloween just around the corner, retailers can further entice their customers to pick up these leviathan bulbs with the OctCLOVErfest promotion, which encourages kid-friendly activities such as hand-painting faces onto the garlic bulbs.

Monster Garlic is grown in historical garlic powerhouse Spain. The behemoth bulbs are easy-to-peel, and deliver on both flavor and size. I’m not sure how anyone is going to be able to keep their hands off of them. Although I might be biased, given that garlic and I have long been friends—if a recipe calls for two cloves, I put in about ten (I extend my apologies to those friends and family who are not as fond of garlic as I am).

For retailers wondering how best to show off the colossal-sized garlic bulbs—which weigh between 3 and 4 oz—I Love Produce packages them in a unique, stackable box. Each holds 10 Monster Garlics, equalling out to a whopping 2.5 lb case of garlic!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to see a man about a monster. A Monster Garlic, that is.
