Celebrating a less traditional Turkey Day?
But perhaps we should consider adding pumpkin pie back to the mix.
A new study reveals that pumpkin — one of Thanksgiving’s mainstays — has an exciting alternative use.
Chicago’s Smell and Taste Research Center found that men really like pumpkin, but not necessarily because of the taste. Apparently the smell of pumpkin ‘turns them on’ more than any other scent.
The scientists measured arousal by the amount of penile blood flow. (He he — I know, right?) Vanilla and strawberry scored next highest in the study.
Of all the foods traditionally served at the ginormous Turkey Day dinner that I am purposefully avoiding this year, pumpkin pie is my favorite. I usually buy one at Thanksgiving and eat on it for the next week or so. But this year?
I’m gonna save some to put behind my ears.
