DULCE DE LECHE: Spanish for “milk candy,” the sensual combination of this delightful ingredient with our dark chocolate will make you swoon with sweet satisfaction. The addition of a pine nut brittle flourish atop this confection heightens its aphrodisiac powers because pine nuts are a good source of zinc, a key mineral for the sustenance of male potency.
FIG FENNEL: Figs are an erotic, fleshy fruit, said to act as a powerful sexual stimulant. Ritual copulation followed the arrival of the new fig crop in Ancient Greece & was one of the sacred foods they associated with fertility and love.GINGER: Ginger stimulates the circulatory system, thus creating a richer blood flow. The scent & flavor of ginger is spicy & hot which simulates the nervous system and can create deeper passion.
GHOST CHILE Salted Caramel: Chile peppers have the ability to release endorphins which give us a floating and energized feeling. The spiciness of chiles increases the heart rate & makes the tongue dance preparing anyone for a sensual rendezvous with their partner.HOT CEYLON CINNAMON: Cinnamon is among the spices considered useful for producing “heat” within the body, & has been measured to increase appetites, both physically & sexually.
LICORICE: Licorice has an ancient reputation as an aphrodisiac; the Kama Sutra contains numerous recipes for increasing sexual vigor which include licorice. It is widely believed that chewing on bits of licorice root enhances one’s sexual vitality.ROSE: The smell of roses helps to reduce anxiety & calm emotions that can block arousal. The organic essential rose oil that we use contains over 134 rose blossoms in just 2 drops, so each caramel contains nearly 1 whole blossom of this powerful aphrodisiac.
TEQUILA LIME: We chose tequila as one of our flavors even though it is not technically an aphrodisiac. It has played a significant role in the mating rituals of the American southwest and south of the border for centuries, & is certainly responsible for countless barely remembered liaisons.VANILLA Salted Caramel: Vanilla bean is a known aphrodisiac, prized for its sensual & exotic aroma & flavor, as well as for its ability to improve circulation and invigorate the spirit. It is said to have a euphoric effect on the brain & a calming effect on the nervous system.
