On its website, "SexCereal" claims it's "the world's most passionate cereal." At $10 a box, many in Coconut Grove felt it was a worth try Tuesday night.
"I would buy it for all my friends, and my partner too," Mercedes Mendez told NBC 6.
"[In a] cereal box," wondered George Stoubakis. "Like, you buy the cereal, and it's safe? Alright, I would use that."
"SexCereal" is big in Canada, but it's not in stores all over South Florida yet, though it is available for purchase online at SexCereal.com.
Does it work? Dr. Gilbert Concepcion told NBC 6 he was not sold. Although the cereal boasts all-natural ingredients like bee pollen, wheat germ, and pumpkin seeds in blends specially- formulated for men and women, Concepcion suspects most who eat the cereal will be more persuaded by the placebo, when the mind convinces the body a product is doing just what it promises.
"If you can sort of enhance that mental aspect of it to empower yourself through a cereal, then, sure, more power to you," Concepcion explained.
Though a crunchy cereal may be the latest trend in romantic meals, some still prefer an old-fashioned menu.
One South Florida man said he would prefer "steak, wine, and dark chocolate."
