Fart Through To The New Year In Grand Style; Here’s A Pill That Makes Farts Smell Like Chocolate

If you don’t have any idea yet on what to give this Christmas, here’s a very, and I mean, very unique idea. Give them the Father Christmas fart pill –  “the pill that gives your farts the scent of chocolate.”

Invented by Christian Poincheval of Gesvres, France, he claims he came up with the idea several years ago after a night out with friends. They were enjoying a meal at the time and, unfortunately, could not control their farts. “Our farts were so smelly we were nearly suffocated. Something had to be done,” he said.

He added, “When we were vegetarian we noticed that our gas smelt like vegetables, like the odor from a cow pat, but when we started eating meat, the smell of the flatulence become much disagreeable. We needed to invent something that made them smell nicer.”

After months and months of testing and research along with the help of a scientist, he finally got the perfect formula for his experiment.

The 65-year-old Santa Claus look-a-like had a shot of fame many years ago when he joined in a French TV talent show for inventors and showcased how the anti-flatulence tablets work. Containing natural ingredients like seaweed, blueberries, and fennel, the pill he presented aims to ease digestion. However, his idea was rejected by the panelists.

Today, his latest invention has gone viral. According to Poincheval, the pills have been approved by health authorities and are now sold on the online. Want to buy? It only costs $12.50 (£8) per jar of 60 pills. The product claims it will “allow the user to fart through to the New Year in grand style.”


He gladly explains, “I have all sorts of customers. Some buy them because they have problems with flatulence and some buy them as a joke to send to their friends. Christmas always sees a surge in sales.”
