Morrisons Introduces Aphrodisiac Food
By Laura Elliott.
Retailer Morrisons has announced that it has developed a range of Valentine’s Day inspired foods, which they are hoping will woo their customers. Executive chef Neil Nugent has developed an aphrodisiac-infused ‘love rub’ to coat their sirloin steaks with; the ‘Cupid’s Seasoning’ includes chilli and chocolate as well as coffee.
Nugent said that “The unique steak tastes great accompanied with chips, an egg for him and a salsa or guacamole for her. We hope the results are satisfying all round.” Morrisons will be selling the pre-seasoned steaks at half price (£9/kg) until 14 February.
The retailer will also be moulding its in-store produced salmon and prawn fishcakes into the shape of a heart this week. These will also be sold at half price. In the run-up to Valentine’s Day, Morrisons expects to sell 1.1m bunches of flowers, 21,000 fresh oysters, 800,000 boxes of chocolates and 250,000 bottles of fizz.
