You Can Now Buy 'Golden Girls' Chia Pets for Your—Ahem—Quirkiest Friends

Your bestie has a birthday coming up, and you're not sure what to buy her.

You could go the traditional route with flowers or a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, or you could go a little more esoteric and gift her a Chia Pet featuring characters from the timeless classic Golden Girls.

From the people who brought you Golden Girls hot sauce—Always Fits—comes Golden Girls Chia Pets, a fun-slash-creepy new way to celebrate your favorite septuagenarian gals.

The Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia pets are sold separately, for $18 each (on sale from $28), and each box comes with three packets of chia seeds, a plastic dip tray and care instructions. According to Always Fits, "In just a few short weeks, your Chia Pet will achieve maximum growth and enjoy a luscious green coat."

If you're looking for something a little more over the top, there's still the option to rent The Golden Girl Guest House, the actual guest house of Rue McClanahan—Blanche, duh—at the foot of the Arbuckle Mountains in southern Oklahoma.

Are these Chia Pets haunted? Maybe. Are they weirdly funny? Oh, you bet.
