Durex Is 'Launching' A New Flavour Of Condoms And Twitter Is Losing It

πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†

(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.
