Is cheese “the topping of love”?


Take out those fondue pots for Valentine’s! A pizza retailer claims that cheese could be an aphrodisiac.

Really? Cheese sure doesn’t smell seductive!

What’s in cheese that makes it romantic? Experts claimed that cheese has a high level of “amphetamine phenylethylamine” (PEA). Ampheta-what? Let’s call it love stuff. That means it influences “feelings of love within the brain,” more so than chocolate.

I cracked up when I read this. My first thought was, is this a marketing campaign from a pizza company? Ah well, who knows right? It could make for an interesting experiment. Just be wary about cheese breath afterwards. And beware the lactose-intolerant! And for the pregnant ones, make sure you’re eating pasteurized cheeses! So no camembert and brie for us. Boo.

The only cheese I know that comes out a lot during Valentine’s is cheesy romantic lines. And don’t we all fall for it. 😀

    Yet, a cheese fondue ala Organic Mozzarella Cheese Pot of Discovery Suites will do nicely for me!
    More “love stuff” than chocolate you say? Hmmm…

    oh??? i don’t know….
    cheese is very staple in the dutch diet, as well as milk. but generally, dutch people are not romantic. sweet, gooey, mushy stuffs are not a dutch thing. so….. ^-^

    anyways, we love pizza, and it makes the husband very happy when we have our pizza friday night.

    advance happy Vday to you, H and the little one!
