Come on Elmer, How About Some Edible Glue



What is wrong with Elmer's glue? Clearly a back to school staple, but what are they doing the other 11 months of the year when Walmart shoppers aren't stocking up on the many available sizes of "glue-all."

Berwind corporation recently bought out Elmer's Products Inc. (which was originally marketed by Borden Milk Products, the milk brand with Elsie the Cow as a mascot). And Berwind, it's time to start thinking edible glue.

I'm thinking your standard "Laffy Taffy" flavors (Banana, Sour Apple, Strawberry-Kiwi, etc.). You figure every kid is going to try eating the paste once in their life, make it taste good, and just maybe they'll come back for more glue mid-October to try a new flavor, or because they ate all their Cherry-Vanilla Glue in art and crafts?

Here's a fun video I found when I saw searching to see if edible glue already exist.

Thanks YouTube. That's 2 minutes of my life that I'll never get back.

If kids are going to eat it anyway, might as well come out with flavoured glue!

RC, Very funny video made, I think, to warn parents about their kids eating paste...or maybe not. :)

I'm all for flavored Elmer's, what the heck!

I think folks about my age (29) are about the last ones to have had the priveledge of eating that old-school, minty tasting paste. The real sticky stuff. Brings back so many memories.
