Deo Candy Makes Funky Pits Smell like Roses

by Shane McGlaun

I don’t why it is exactly, but my 11-year-old son has a serious aversion to bathing regularly and using deodorant. I’m sure he’s not the only pre-teen boy out there who can’t carve the time out of their busy schedule of video games and backyard football for a shower. Luckily, he will eat all the candy you put in front of him, so this Deo edible deodorant candy may be just the ticket – assuming he doesn’t mind smelling like a girl.


The Bulgarian manufacturer of the candy claims that it tackles body odor from the inside out. The candy is made using geraniol, which is the type of alcohol found in rose oil. According to the manufacturer of the candy, as a person sweats that particular alcohol evaporates through the skin leaving your skin smelling like roses.

According to scientists, we already know that eating lots of food like garlic or curry can change the way a person smells. That means that this candy could work, but scientists say we would need a placebo-controlled study to determine if the candy is actually effective at eliminating body odor from the inside out.
