Blog: Chocolate mousetrap

Catherine Sleep | 18 July 2003

Inventors of a mousetrap that smells of chocolate say mice are drawn to that scent rather than to cheese, conventionally used in mousetraps. A type of plastic known as ABS is mixed by hand with chocolate essence and then moulded to look like a normal mousetrap.

The chocolate aroma is concentrated in the spring-loaded base which traps the mouse when it stands on it. After six months the aroma fades, but the trap can then be used with chocolate or cheese.

Just thought you flavour and fragrance guys out there might like to know of a new application for your technology.
