Chocolate is one of the most effective chemical stimulants to induce euphoria. Coco is natures version of ecstasy.   The chemical Phenylethamine is a stimulant that creates a feeling of well-being. With many people, they are willing to try new things when they are euphoric. My note of caution, there is a fine line between eating enough chocolate to get this euphoria and suddenly feeling fat and unattractive. Take head gentlemen.

    Seriously? I didn’t know these foods were aphrodesiacs. If that is the case, I ought to be the sexiest person around as I already eat all these regularly. Except the oysters. Too expensive.

    Wine, chocolate, and oysters set the romantic mood. Will they all work?

    Lots of great ideas for Valentine’s Day. Some I didn’t know about. My one thought would be to not try to eat all those foods at once.

  1. So you forgot to make Valentine's Day Restaurant Reservations?Tom's Foodie Blog - February 13, 2014

    […] Below is a list of restaurants that still have prime time (5:00-9:30pm) seating according to OpenTable.com. This availability is fluid, so verify yourself with this link on the restaurant’s name. If you find a restaurant with a reasonable opening, I suggest you take the reservations and then ask questions later.   If you fail to act, I suggest you make a visit to Tiffany’s instead and surprise her with a blue box. Otherwise you will be making dinner at home, which is never a bad idea. If you cook at home, I suggest you use my Top 10 aphrodisiac foods for your Valentine’s Day Dinner. ;) […]
