Romantic Exposure and Sweet Food Consumption

Building upon research on food consumption, conceptual metaphor, and assimilation and contrast, we examine how romance stimuli exposure affects consumers’ sweet food consumption. We find that romantic exposure increases propensities to consume sweet food among romantically uninvolved consumers but reduces the tendency to consume sweet food among romantically involved consumers.
