Chocolate, garlic and chilli as well as onions, herbs and alcohol are well known aphrodisiac foods since the down of time and are also some of the main ingredients of Hay Hampers Valentine’s brand new range of gourmet gifts.

For the sweet tooth, Hay Hampers offer a line of chocolate gifts where cocoa is the king. The "food of the gods" is among the world’s most complex foods as it contains a host of compounds including anandamide and tryptophan (the psychoactive feel-good chemicals), PEA (the "love chemical" which releases dopamine in the pleasure centres of the brain) and magnesium which helps raise the progesterone levels.

For the savoury nibbler and particularly the cheese lover, Hay Hampers have a number of cheese hampers flavoured with chilli, truffles, herbs and garlic or brandy and whisky. Alcohol, when used in moderation and with conscious consideration, reduces anxiety, lowers inhibitions and works as an antioxidant for your body.

Gabriele Da Re, Managing Director at Hay Hampers Ltd, said: “There is a number of aphrodisiac foods you can add into your diet. Not only will they help in the passion department, but they have a wide range of health benefits so there is no reason to feel guilty for eating them!”

Hay Hampers Valentine’s range of gourmet gifts starts from small boxes at £15 upwards to match every taste and budget.
