I love baked beans, and often have them for breakfast. Okay, so I'm weird. But I'm not weird enough to enjoy producing unpleasant odors. So I keep the Gas-X where I eat, so that I remember to take a softgel before I take the first bite of beans. Problem solved. I know Gas-X hasn't been on the market all my life, but I can't remember when I first bought it. Whenever it was, I've used it ever since. I wouldn't like to be without it.
