BROOKLYN, Ohio - Greeting cards have gotten pretty fancy the last several years. They come in oversized versions... they pop-up... they play music...and now, get this, greeting cards are tasty too!
Brooklyn-based American Greetings Corporation is releasing a line called Tasties; cards that come with a dissolvable flavor strip for the recipient to eat. Each of the flavor strips corresponds with the message that's on the birthday card. One flavor strip tastes like a vanilla cupcake.
"I can taste, uh, a little bit of vanilla frosting with sprinkles on a regular donut," says one little girl who tried it. "It tastes really good."
From a taste of chocolate, to a toast with a margarita, the idea is one which some say they're not surprised to see.
" Cards gone everywhere now, we're gonna taste them now too," says one man.
"Greeting cards are coming over the edge now, they're totally different, you gotta be up and on the cutting edge now, whatever's new and different, and this is good," says a woman.
The little taste of cupcake or donut, or even the chocolate, won't break your diet. The company hopes it will lift some spirits.
