WTF: Menstrual Blood Valentine's Chocolate Is A Real Thing In Japan
In many cultures' pasts there has been the concept of of creating "love potions" for the person you're currently crushing on and often times the ingredients included adding a little bit of yourself to the concoction. Hair, skin flakes and often blood are called for to increase the potency of the elixir.

Now the disturbing bit, in recent years a Twitter trend in Japan has been calling to add menstrual blood to their 本命チョコ (honmei-choco, or affection chocolates) that are given out during the Valentines season.

It's fairly common practice in Japan for girls to make their own chocolates to give out to their crush, but this really brings some concern to the whole thing. Now, granted not everyone is doing this and more likely than not, no one (I hope) is actually doing this. It has, however been talked about at length on Twitter.
私毎年本命チョコにだけ経血混ぜてる

This user says they include their menstrual blood every year.
Another user asks about how much of her monthly flow is normal to include.
バレンタインデー前日に生理来たんだけどこれってチョコに経血混ぜろって言う神様からのお告げ?
This user wonder if it's a sign from God that she should add her secret ingredient since she got her period.

There are loads more of tweets along these lines from the last couple of years but you get the idea.

The moral of the story here is don't accept chocolates from crazy people. Unless of course you're into that kind of thing, in which case continue on as normal.

I imagine you'd need a lot of sugar/cocoa to hide the metallic taste of blood...

Being a Madoka fan I couldn't help but laugh at this. Especially since I ship the pairing of Madoka and Homura. However, no, I don't want period chocolates or anything with period blood in it, or to drink it either. That's just gross.

You two know the difference between menstruation and selfharming, yes? If not, I highly recommend to look them up.

First what you do with your own body doesn't concern me. 2 Will it kill you to use your head and guess everything being say there is from the article and not me?
