New Ohio greeting cards come with flavor stripsFrom: www.msnbc.msn.com
CLEVELAND — Move over, greeting cards with sounds or smells. A new entry from an Ohio company plays to the sense of taste.
American Greetings Corp. on Monday announced the launch of Tasties, a line of cards that come with dissolvable flavor strips meant to be eaten by the recipients.
The Cleveland-based company says each sealed strip offers a “tasty surprise” that corresponds to the message on the card. For example, a card that features the image of a cupcake and a line about birthdays providing an excuse to eat cake comes with an insert made to taste like a cupcake.
Other cards in the series come with the flavors that include a doughnut and a margarita.
