Celery

 Celery is said to stimulate the pituitary gland which increases the release of sexual hormones. The root of the vegetable has also been known to serve as a cure for impotency. That childhood treat topped with peanut butter (go for something natural, not Jif) and raisins is actually one of the healthiest and stimulating snacks one can eat. Raisins are alkaline-forming while peanut butter is high in monounsaturated fats which is known to increase dopamine. And we all know the act of licking peanut butter off your fingers is a real freak show. 

Go get your freak on.
