[Ed. – But do they make chocolate taste like farts?]
Christian Poincheval was enjoying a meal out with friends six years ago when he had his eureka moment and the idea for a new product popped into his head.
What sparked his creativity? “After a hearty meal, we almost suffocated as our farts were smelly,” the French inventor says, per Mashable. “The winds were not very pleasant for our fellow diners. I had to do something.” Poincheval says he first visited a lab to investigate natural remedies for offending flatulence.
After months of experiments, he had his invention: a line of pills Poincheval says help digestion and turn flatulence into “perfume” using 100% natural ingredients, the Telegraph reports.
