The fork emits smells which waft over the food and reportedly add to the flavour.

"The initial idea was to reinvent the traditional fork into an improved utensil that would trick people's mind by liberating an intense flow of aromas," Jonathan Coutu, president of the Canadian inventors' firm MOLECULE-R Flavors, was quoted as saying.

The metal Aromafork comes with 21 different flavours, including chocolate, vanilla, lychee, strawberry, basil, mint and almond.

The user has to apply the 'taste' each time using a dropper and put a piece of blotting paper in place, media reports said.
