(CNN) - Avocados are a super-popular food, but they now have other uses besides ingestion.

There is a growing trend of people on social media surprising their loved ones with rings inside avocados.

Instead of using a traditional ring box, people are proposing by cutting open an avocado, removing the seed, then placing the ring inside.

Many are crediting the trend to millennials.

The trend even prompted its own hashtag on Twitter, #avocadoproposal.
