Smelly forks

Taste the food aroma.

aroma-r-evolutionHave you ever tried chili that tastes like regular chili but with a hint of banana? Don’t worry, neither have we, but it is tantalizing, and possible to try without having to even purchase the fruity ingredient. That’s because there is now such a thing as an Aroma Fork (from Canada’s Molecule-R), an instrument that can release up to 21 different food smells when you use it to take a bite of a meal. Apparently, your palette can only recognize five different tastes, but it’s the nose that helps to distinguish those tastes. Smells like an invention that came out of Willy Wonka’s factory, if you ask us.
