Forget the roses and candles, the way to your partner’s heart is with chocolate and oysters.

There are chemical compounds in food that are believed to enhance the mood for love, and whether they do or not, lovers turn to these foods every February 14th.

If you want to guarantee some “frisky” business make your partner a chocolate, vanilla, honey, caviar and oyster sandwich.

Foods with aphrodisiac powers include:

Chocolate.  It contains a host of feel-good chemicals that release dopamine in the pleasure centers of the brain.  The chemicals are said to induce feelings of excitement, attraction and euphoria.
