Viagra Gelato Proves Europe Is Just As Weird As Ever

by Stephanie Maida · May 8, 2017

As anyone who has ever studied abroad in college can attest to, men in Europe seem to be perpetually riled up. Like, disturbingly so. One time some dude licked the window of a cafe where my friends and I were innocently drinking espresso, just to get our attention. It was creepy and disgusting. Could this Pfizer-flavored dessert be the culprit? 

Giving new meaning to the phrase "Italian Stallion," Viagra gelato is apparently a thing in Rome, a weird food trend brought to the internet's attention thanks to - what else? - a recent post on Reddit.

Shared by user OceanGod20 on the site's subreddit /r/mildlyinteresting, the photo of a blue, potentially boner-inducing ice cream flavor quickly garnered a bevy of bad puns and penis jokes. You know, because Reddit. But we know what you're thinking: does this ish really contain every sugar daddy's favorite blue pill? 

According to Munchies, probably not. However, there may be something behind the gimmicky flavor. An Italian travel site claims the gelato is made with African herbs that produce the same, ahem, "aphrodisiac" effect - without the prescription. 

Thanks, but we'll just have a scoop of the chocolate!
