According to Save A Lot


Perfect Pairings for the Ultimate Date Night, Late Night and the Morning After


ST. LOUIS (February 8, 2021)--Save A Lot, one of the largest discount grocery store chains in the United States, is getting all too revealing in the kitchen with all tips, no tricks on how to make an aphrodisiac-filled Valentine’s Day a night to remember – and for under $40! With more people than ever celebrating at home this year, Save A Lot identified the most popular products to share with your loved one. From whipped cream, chocolate, honey, bananas, apples, berries to salmon, garlic and avocado, each of these love-fueled foods are poised and ready to break some hearts – not the bank – this Valentine’s Day with a little help from Save A Lot. Just pick an app, main course, dessert, drink and breakfast dish for one romantic and inexpensive night!

Aphrodisiac foods have chemical properties that increase their crave-ability. While foods like chocolate, whipped cream and berries are inherently and intuitively romantic, scientifically, there are other less obvious foods like garlic, salmon and avocado that are just as effective in creating in a romantic atmosphere.

“Whether you are celebrating with a significant other in person or over video chat, there are a few food essentials everyone needs to make this Valentine’s Day both memorable and inexpensive,” said Holly Faivre, Save A Lot’s Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist. “We’re seeing consumers making more of an effort to celebrate at home this year and want to point them in the direction of products that will help set the mood. No matter who you’re celebrating with, there’s no reason why at least one of these items can’t fire up those taste buds on February 14.”

Date Night

Nothing is more romantic than cooking a three-course dinner at home with someone you love. From appetizers to desserts, this is the time to get creative and cook together. With a chef and sous chef, nothing can go wrong in the kitchen; but if it does, at least you are together.

Late Night

Setting the mood (whatever that mood may be) with a festive cocktail is a fun way to indulge without leaving your house or breaking the bank. If you don’t drink, mocktails work just as well (and are much cheaper!). Celebrate the special occasion by coming together for a mixology date night.
