Edible greeting cards, just in time for the holidays. Key lime pie paper anyone?

Edible greeting cards
Two edible greeting cards. One is strawberry-flavored, the other is blueberry.

Until smell-o-vision becomes an actual add-on for your TV, edible greeting cards may be the next best thing.

A Seattle-based company called Eat the Fine Print is making a series of edible cards. They look like regular paper cards, but are made with a mixture of potato starch, water, palm oil, food coloring and natural fruit flavors. 

You unwrap the card, read the message written in edible ink, then start nibbling. And if you want to try just a bite, then save your card for later, it will last for two years in a cool, dry place. 

There are six different cards, each priced at $9. There’s an orange-flavored birthday card, three blueberry-flavored cards, a key lime pie card and a strawberry-flavored card. 


Oh, and in case you’re wondering, they’re gluten-free.
