We've all heard that the way to someone's heart is through their stomach. Whether you're single AF, looking for "the one," or happily in a relationship, there are several foods that can help get you in the mood for love. Check out the most romantic foods to help make your date night a total success.
Honey has more of a role in romance then you might have thought. The word "honeymoon" comes from mead, an alcoholic beverage made from honey that was traditionally given to a new bride and groom. Plus, it's as sweet as can "bee."
2. Chocolate-Covered Strawberries
This sweet dessert combines two romantic boosters. The chocolate helps the brain produce serotonin that cause you to feel good. If you go for the dipped in dark chocolate kind, you're also getting a ton of antioxidants. On the other hand, strawberries are known as the Valentine fruit... red, heart-shaped, and juicy. The best part is you can dip and enjoy them at home easily.
3. Chile Peppers
These bad boys contain endorphins that boost your mood and energy. The capsaicin in the peppers also causes your lips to swell and your tongue to tingle. Learn how to handle the heat... It's worth it.
There's a myth that the first pomegranate tree was planted by Aphrodite, the goddess of love, herself. The antioxidants in pomegranates help to increase blood flow and testosterone levels. Stressed about your date? Pomegranates can help.
Fondue is such a special treat that it makes a great date idea. Honestly, if you trust someone not to double dip... or don’t care if they do, that’s love. The best part? It's easy to throw together last second.
Oysters are an even more commonly known aphrodisiac. Eating them has been known to raise testosterone production and general libido. Not convinced? Casanova allegedly ate 50 a day for breakfast and look at his luck in the love department.
It might be smart to avoid this somewhat messy dish on a first date, but seriously, have you ever seen Lady and the Tramp? There's no way you've never wanted to try that with your S.O.
From oysters to peppers, some of these may be surprising as the most romantic foods. However, if you're looking for love, might as well give these meals a shot. You've got nothing to lose.
