Movie streamers, Blinkbox, have made a limited edition popcorn which claims to be an aphrodisiac, especially for Valentine’s Day. Of course, all the aphrodisiacs you need are already in the booze aisle, so presumably this is for rutting teenagers who can’t get served.
Blinkbox teamed-up with popcorn company Cheeky Frog to create ‘Lights, Popcorn, Action!’ which sadly, isn’t popcorn that emits the smell of poppers or champagne, but rather, contains ginseng, ginger and chocolate.
A Cheeky Frog spokesperson said: “Studies have shown that ginger and ginseng root are powerful aphrodisiacs. Ginseng has an earthy and bitter flavour to it which is perfectly offset by the spiciness of the ginger and the richness and creaminess of the chocolate.”
“Chocolate contains serotonin, a chemical that makes the brain happy, leading to affectionate behaviour, as well as phenylethylamine, a chemical associated with love.”
So, if you want to innocently eat a box of popcorn while getting a damp-section in your gusset, you’ll be able to snag some by tweeting @blinkbox between February 7th and 12th, stating who they would share the aphrodisiac snack with and why.
There’s going to be a lot of Jimmy Savile jokes for Blinkbox to wade through, isn’t there?
