    Flavoured 120 film tabs

    I don’t know if this true, but I understand that at one time, some manufacturers of 120 film put flavours on the tab that you lick and seal the exposed film. Does anybody know if this was true? If so do you think it should be revived and with what flavour?

    How about putting some LSD flavor in the glue?

    How about 120 film tabs with water activated super glue!

    I kinda just prefer the ones fuji has, just pull to peel, and press to stick.
