    Taste of Ilford glue

    This is a silly quesiton, but why does the glue on some rolls of ilford 120 film taste like mint while on others it does not? It seems that HP5 and Pan F sometimes taste like mint, but other times they do not, while Delta 100 never does (by way, my girlfriend has confirmed this, isnt not just my imagination or something i ate before).

    How old is your HP5?

    I recall this from the past, but the brick of HP5 (marked Harman Technology) I have is not tasting that breath-fresh. Nor is my FP4.
    If you tone it down alot, it almost becomes bearable.

    We had covered this in a previous thread. It's basicaly Ole's fault. He is alergic to the scents. Ilford will not use "tastes" in their glue because of it.

    Now how will photographers get that minty fresh breath?

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    According to another thread, the mint has been removed from new film.

    I am starting a new pressure group LICFILM (the Local and International Campaign to Flavour Ilford Labels Mint) to force a re-think on Ilford's part...

    Cheers, Bob.

    Can I suggest that each film have a different flavour. HP5+ should be strawberry, (my favourite), delta 100, mint (I like it when I'm in the right mood,) SFX should be Marmite (some love it, some hate it) etc....

    Had to look that one up. At first, I thought you had a thing for marmots or something...

    The flavors ought to be distinctively British. Perhaps Devon cream for fp4+ and Cornish pasty for hp5+? I realize that would make two flavors from the west country, so perhaps Yorkshire should supply the flavor for Pan F.
