Okay, so right off the bat a single question came to mind when I saw this on the calendar: do most people consider oysters an aphrodisiac or…?
Now you may be wondering why this was the first place my mind went and to be honest- we’ll never truly know. I suspect it’s because that’s the only trivia I knew, hence why I went on a deep dive because I had some questions!
My first question: Where did this originate? The answer: No one knows.
My second question: What’s some cool trivia on oysters?
~ they have gills and hemolymph (colorless blood)
~ location determines their flavor
~ they contain all of the essential amino acids (there are nine)
~ they are rich in minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, and protein
My final takeaway from everything is simple: I now have a hankering for oysters AND I really want to know public opinion on the aphrodisiac angle…
