This Pill Makes Your Farts Smell like Chocolate

 |  |  |  |  |  May 1, 2016

Farts are funny, but they don’t smell funny. “Silent but deadly” isn’t just a saying, it’s a true fact. That’s why someone has invented a line of scented pills designed to make your farts smell like pleasant things – like violets, roses, and even chocolate.

These pills were created by a Frenchman named Christian Poincheval. He was inspired to create them after a fart-filled dinner with friends. He explains, “We had just came back from Switzerland and we were eating a lot … the smell from the flatulence was really terrible. We couldn’t breathe so me and [my] friend decided something had to be done.”


Wow. Any farts that inspire scientific breakthroughs must be worthy of the record books. They must have cleared that place out. Poincheval says that the product does more than just make your gas smell better. It’s also supposed to reduce bloating and helps your digestive system run better. The pills come in flowery scents, there’s a cocoa-infused variety called “Father Christmas”, even a “St. Valentine’s Ginger Fart Pill.” Need help with dog farts? This guy has you covered. Dog versions are available in powder form to sprinkle on your dog’s food.

If you’re so convinced that you want your farts to smell like flowers and candy, you can order them from Lutin Malin for about $21 for a bottle of 60 pills. That should last you at least one meal at Taco Bell.
