(Update: Turns out that Durex is not actually bringing out brinjal flavoured condom. According to the Mirror, this was just a publicity stunt to promote safe-sex among younger folks. The stunt was Durex's way of campaigning for the emoji. Well, at least it gave us a few laughs.)
Flavoured, glow-in-the-dark, ringed, ribbed, dotted... you get the drift. Innovation is always the key and, on Monday, showing some out-of-the-box thinking, global condom manufacturer Durex launched an unusually flavoured condom in its "new savoury condom range". Yes, you can now get an eggplant -- or as we Indians call it, brinjal or baingan -- flavoured condom.
The condom manufacturer posted about it on Twitter.

Looks like Durex has won today's Twitter. Had to happen with Baingan flavored condoms. Butter Chicken and Kurkuri Bhindi up next for sure.
