Contrary to your mother’s admonishments, you should inhale your food–or so a Harvard professor would like to prove with his consumption breakthrough: Le Whif. Sized and shaped like a container of lipstick, Le Whif holds a supply of flavored particles that when inhaled are small enough not to contain any measurable calories but large enough not to enter the lungs. Coffee and chocolate are so far the only “foods” that are inhale-able with the device. The user places one end of the canister in their mouth (like a straw) and inhales, allowing a wave of flavored particles to coat the tongue and mouth. Le Whif promises a delicious chocolate experience without the calories and a jolt of caffeine without the coffee cup. Single use containers are available through specialty candy stores across the US or through the European manufacturer for about $2.30 each; current flavors include coffee, chocolate, mint chocolate, and raspberry chocolate.
