Hard Candy

February 4, 2009

A New Zealand chocolate company has created an aphrodisiac chocolate for men, just in time for Valentine’s Day. The chocolate, called Tomcat Alley, promises to “make you a tiger in the bedroom.”

The chocolate is named after the potent herb tongkat ali, from Southeast Asia. This herb is shown to stimulate testosterone in men, delivering a noticeable aphrodisiac effect. It has been nicknamed the “Asian Viagra.” A study conducted by a market research student gave the chocolate to 60 male volunteers over a three day period. It found that “82% of men experienced sexual arousal. There were other reported positive effects, including [increased] stamina and improved mood.” The company advises that guys eat two pieces of chocolate for 3 days to achieve the desired effect.
