Okay, colored stripes -- along the top of the film strip there is a continuous green stripe, and red stripes above and below it periodically. Are these what you're referring to? I noticed something else when I was examining the Memories film -- well the container, actually. The container it comes in is identical to the container that my Fuji Superia 400 came in. Same characteristic Fuji shape. Translucent like all Fuji containers that are commonly seen. It's the same even down to the recycling symbol and alpha-numeric codes that are imprinted into the cap and the container itself. Also, Fuji C-41 film is the only film I know of that lists its own developing process -- C-16 -- on its canisters, and lists it before the C-41 process. Memories is the same. So I'd say the preponderance of evidence allows me to conclude that Memories is indeed Fuji film. Now, what type, that I don't know. Probably Superia 200.
BTW, just thought I'd mention: I went down to the 99 Cent store again today and bought 10 more rolls. Found one that had expired in May but all the others I saw expire in October and had only two different lot numbers. I bought some of each lot just to see if it might make a difference.
