Truck drivers are especially happy with the new innovation that will leave their sewage trucks smelling like chocolate.

Four sewage collecting companies in Osaka, have announced that they have joined forces to come up with a solution to mask the harsh smell that comes out of their vacuum trucks that are commonly used to collect sewage.

The companies enlisted the help of Yamamoto Fragrance and Shikibo, a manufacturer who created a pleasant-smelling deodorizer called “Deo Magic.” The product has been used primarily in diapers and pet odor-eliminating products.

They came up with a lubricating oil that will emit the smell of chocolate from the trucks to mask the harsh smell.

Although the companies have received good reports from people, some parents seem to take issue with the fact that feces is being associated with chocolate.

One parent of young children suggested that the association between the similarly colored things might encourage kids to indulge in a bathroom snack. “They should have used the smell of orange juice instead,” the parents suggested.

“I’ll never be able to eat chocolate ever again,” another person said.

A father was jailed for 100 years after being convicted of raping and killing his daughter.

The father, Hiawatha Robinson, maintained his innocence, but he was convicted by a jury despite the fact that there was no DNA evidence to link him to the rape.

Robinson, who was convicted of sodomy and murder of his 8-year-old daughter Hiawayi, vowed to appeal the case.

Prosecutors said that Robinson was the last one to see his daughter alive. The girl told her grandmother that she was going to visit her father, who promised to give her $150 for her birthday, and then she will be at her cousin's house.

However, Hiawayi never made it to her cousin. Her body was found in an abandoned building two days after she was reported missing.

An autopsy showed that the girl, who was found with her pants down, had been sexually assaulted.

Police found surveillance videos at a mall, showing the girl buying sweets before heading in the direction of a red Chevrolet Tahoe. The vehicle belonged to Robinson’s girlfriend.

Fifteen minutes after Hiawayi left the store, her father called her grandmother to see where she was, authorities said.

Police seized the red vehicle, and during a search, detectives found a clear hair bead, which they say is like those worn by Hiawayi. They also found black duct tape.

After she was reported missing, Robinson and the girl’s mother Yosha Populus, who are separated, appeared on television to appeal for information.

Robinson also helped search for his missing daughter, police said.

Investigators believe Hiawayi was sexually abused by her father multiple times, with the last incident resulting in her death.

In court, Robinson said: “I came here today as a man. I will leave here today as a man. I won't apologize for something I didn't do.”

He then told judge Charles Graddick “remember this face, I will be back, you will hear this voice again.”
