Science just made chocolate farts a possibility, so hold onto your knickers and read this.
Christian Poincheval, a 65-year-old French inventor who comes from a small village, might just be the man who solved the divorce crisis: he created pills that reportedly work to change the scent of farts from foul to chocolate. Chocolate farts, people, might just start saving marriages, and we’re not surprised this development came from the place that focuses so much energy on fine perfumes, fragrant wines, and cheeses.
Poincheval sells the pills online for around $12 for 60 capsules. The website promises the chocolate pills will “allow the user to fart through to the New Year in grand style.” He also produces fart masking pills in rose scent for more delicate flowers with gas.
He describes his discovery to TheLocal.Fr, “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 became much disagreeable,” he said. “We needed to invent something that made them smell nicer.”

He claims his pills not only create chocolate farts, they reduce gas and bloating thanks to healthy ingredients like vegetable coal, fennel, seaweed, plant resin, bilberry, and cacao zest. Holiday meals, binge eating, and poor dietary skills all give way to particularly stinky gas, and those who indulge in animal proteins are Poincheval’s ideal customers.
So here’s what I’m really wondering– who will be the American genius to turns this into a recreational party drug?
