Men are taking over supermarkets.
Supermarkets have long been the domain of women, who traditionally do the grocery shopping. Walk through the aisles of any market and you'll see most items are targeted with women in mind -- floral-scented detergents designed to remind you of a soft summer rain, foods marked low-fat or sugar-free that promise everything short of free liposuction with purchase, and items in cute individual-size packages (puppies or babies on the labels score extra points).

Lately, however, men are making their way to the market. A recent Forbes article claims Procter & Gamble is testing special man aisles in supermarkets and drugstores filled with macho items such as razors, shaving cream, and Rogaine.

The trend isn't really new. Last year, Yahoo! conducted a survey of 1,000 dads. Fifty-one percent of them said they were the primary grocery shopper in their household.&

We're not shocked. We've found plenty of man-friendly items in the supermarket. From beer to soup, here's a list of the top ten testosterone-driven items available.

10. Schweddy Balls
Men are obsessed with balls. When you're not playing with balls, you're watching other men play with balls (relax -- we're talking about sports). Ben & Jerry's realized how much you like your balls. So they made Schweddy Balls ice cream. Named after the famous Pete Schweddy, who makes the best rum balls on the planet, Schweddy Balls has a hint of rum (the libation of manly pirates everywhere). Unfortunately, the ice cream is in limited production, so we're sad to say it's difficult to find Schweddy Balls in Miami.

9. Tang
Despite popular belief, Tang was not invented for astronauts. It was, however, used by NASA for the Gemini and Mercury manned space flights in the early '60s. That makes Tang forever a manly drink. Because everyone knows astronauts are more macho than even cowboys and NASCAR drivers.
