Well, what a Valentine's present, the connotations are legend with this proclamation happily trotted out by the marketing gurus at a leading budget supermarket chain but apart from one potential alternative 'use' (!) for your cucumber, you might like to consider that if you go on your Valentine's date and are hoping to get lucky but have unfortunately left your chewing gum, throat spray or mints at home, you can relax if you have a cucumber with you.

Not only would said cucumber be a talking point, "Is that a cucumber in your pocket or are you pleased to see me?" But also a very handy halitosis remedy, for if you were to take a slice of your cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue for 30 seconds, the contained phytochemicals will kill any halitosis-making bacteria.

But that's not all, cucumbers could become a superfood as they contain Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc so you would save money on multivitamins and sport drinks too as this vita-fest can give you that pick me up that you need - cucumbers really can give you more wings than a tin of Redbull or a pack of Always Infinity..........  Not only that, if you have a problem with having your 'five a day' along with the recommended eight glasses of water a day, you could partially 'kill two birds with one stone' as the venerable cucumber both contains 95% water and is a fruit to boot.

The cucumber is the gift that keeps on giving for if you are trying to slim, well, you can stave off your hunger pangs by eating a cucumber, similarly, if after a wowser bender you have the hangover from hell, well, cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to replenish essential nutrients the body lost through alcohol abuse, thus keeping everything in balance. So just nibble on your cucumber before going to bed and wake up revitalised and headache free!

That said, I cannot think of a use for cucumbers in the heady world of valve vinyl and hifi and it is for this reason that we don't sell them at Mullard Magic but hey, we've lots of other cool stuff on offer so why not buy an alternative Valentine present from us - go on, you've got a week to select something from HERE & HERE
