Playboy & Chocolate with Ferrero

Ferrero Rocher Bunny Edition

                This little bunny here is a Ferrero Rocher chocolate from my aunt. It’s beautiful isn’t it? The shape of a bunny with a chocolate is really cute and creative, to think that bunnies are really cute in person. It tastes really good too, the sweetness of the chocolate and crisp of every bite brings heaven by your side, and just thinking about it is so much mouth watering! YUM... But come to think of it, I knew a little trivia about bunnies especially relating to the magazine of playboy.

                Ever wondered WHY PLAYBOY USES A BUNNY AS THEIR LOGO? Last May of 2012, I was reviewing for the nursing board exam and our instructor just added out of the blue with our clueless minds that bunnies are animals who have the highest libido. Unbelievable right? With all those cuddly fur ball and cutest eyes ever who would have thought that these animals have such drives?  After all, people do really believe in the impossible. Also according to the art editor of playboy “Bunnies or Rabbits have a humorous sexual connotation, and because he offered an image that was frisky and playful. I put him in a tuxedo to add the idea of sophistication.” (http://www.designboom.com/portrait/playboy.html)

 Moreover, to top that thought, it is a tradition for everyone in the world during Valentine’s Day to give chocolate to their loved ones. This day is a day for lovers, a day to see the magic of love in every hearts of those who are in love. But...WHY CHOCOLATES? Why not fruits which are healthier than chocolates? Other guys would not know this but others do, and if they did, then they are secretly formulating a love potion for women! Chocolates stimulates the release of endorphins in the body therefore it promotes a feeling of pleasure; also it has tryptophan which stimulates the release of serotonin and therefore gives the feeling of happiness to the body. And to validate that noted sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer says of this "wicked pleasure" that "the taste of chocolate is a sensual pleasure in itself, existing in the same world as sex." (http://www.medicalwellnessassociation.com/articles/chocolate_benefits.htm)

Then, here comes the ferrero. I wouldn’t know the real reason of the manufacturer for producing such as masterpiece (seriously, it’s good and cute) is it the playboy side or the chocolate-hormones-producing side? I think, every establishment desires to bring out the satisfaction and pleasure that each consumer wants.
