Paper Tasting

A company called U.S. Inc. has developed Taste-It-Notes, a new whizzbang product which allows consumers to sample food products by tasting strips of paper. Tests have shown it can sell product, but how can paper accurately replicate the flavors, textures, and aromas of actual food? The concept still is pretty nifty IMHO.

The inspiration behind the strips came from this memorable scene from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory:

The concept in the film is precious, but wouldn't lickable wallpaper gross you out after thinking about how many wet tongues have been on it? In my home, you would see the Fruit Cocktail Scratch and Sniff wallpaper collection by Flavor Paper. The wallpaper comes in Cherry, Tutti-Frutti, and Banana. Yum... Snozberry not yet available.
