Forget Bitcoin. Cucumber is now a currency in Dubai
You read that right.
This month the value of the humble cucumber will increase as selected venues will be accepting the lunch box-favourite in exchange for a drink of your choice.
Following on from last year’s unorthodox (but wildly successful) marketing ploy from Hendricks, some of your favourite Dubai bars will be accepting any species cucumbers as legal tender on October 10.
Not just tasty, and now a form of currency, this unassuming ingredient ticks all the health boxes too. High in nutrients, cucumbers are low in calories but high in all those important vitamins and minerals. Full of antioxidants, promotes hydration, aids weight loss and lowers blood sugar, is there anything this little guy can’t do?
DXB Cucumber Day will be taking place on the October 10 at the following Dubai locations including Axe House, Barasti, Copper Dog, Lucky Voice and Ramusake.
