have your card & eat it too

okay, this might be the weirdest-yet-most-intriguing thing i've ever blogged about. american greetings just announced "tasties," a new type of birthday card -- each one comes with a dissolvable, sealed flavor strip that you can eat when you open the card. read the official press release here.

i'm not sure how i feel about this. if this were earlier in the year i might just think it was an april fool's joke. i personally would prefer a REAL cupcake with my birthday card, but i guess this is a lower-calorie way to celebrate. :)

what do you think? cool, or too strange? is edible stationery the way of the future?
