Blinkbox has teamed with French popcorn company Cheeky Frog to offer a limited edition run of aphrodisiac popcorn.

The popcorn, which contains ginseng, ginger and chocolate, is not currently for sale in the UK.

Popcorn guru Antoine Gourdon from Cheeky Frog 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.”

Blinkbox spokesman Ben Ayers added: “Going out on Valentine’s Day can be a nightmare, with overpriced restaurants and dodgy serenades. Our saucy treat will be the perfect accompaniment to our fantastic selection of the latest movies and TV. What’s not to love?”

The popcorn will be sent to selected customers, with Twitter fans also to be able to get their hands on some by tweeting @blinkbox with details of who they’d share it with and why.
