Inventors in Canada have unveiled a bizarre gadget. It’s a fork that emits smells to make people think they are tasting flavors like ginger, coffee or banana as they eat their meal.

The metal Aromafork comes with 21 different flavors, including chocolate, vanilla, lychee, passionfruit, strawberry, basil, cilantro, mint and almond. Eaters can also plump for coconut, peanut, cinnamon, ginger, jalapeno, wasabi, butter, olive oil, smoke or truffle.

It works by having a capsule of 'liquid aroma' underneath the fork's handle and is released gradually as the diner eats their meal.
