A hot local study has gone worldwide!

Researchers at St Cloud State University gave women one of 3 snacks: either something sweet, something spicy, or something bland. Then they asked them to rate random men's faces.


Kelly and Abbey are wondering why the heck they weren't called in for this study.

The Huskies researchers found that the women who just had a spicy snack ranked men higher than than the average of the entire group.

 "A spicy flavor was found to increase romantic interest as well as physical attractiveness ratings. It supports the suggestion that sensory experiences, in this case taste, can influence cognitive perceptions regarding potential relationships." ~ Lead researcher Jenna Miska

So fellas, if you're looking for a boost to your prettiness, just take your date to Sawatdee! Or any other spicy food place. Taco Bell might not cut it.
