ads so good you can lick them.

Holy, sweet mother of David Ogilvy. This has to be the greatest invention in the entire history of advertising. Lickable ads. I can't wait to incorporate this into a campaign. Sweet, deliciously good idea for so many applications.

In the meantime, I'm just going to begin licking all of the ads in the subway stations and in the magazines at the doctor's office. Just to see how they taste. Field research. Thanks Maura!

As the president of First Flavor, the company bringing this Peel 'n Taste product to market, there is a major correction to the WSJ article: This is not about Lickable Ads. Welch's used the term 'lick' in their ad and no one seems to have bothered to read the fine print.

Our product, which can be attached to a print ad and peeled off, is a sealed tamper evident foil pouch containing a piece of edible film. (Similar to popular breath strips.) One peels opens the pouch and places the piece of edible film on your tongue. The edible film dissolves quickly leaving you with a burst of flavor. No licking involved!

The point that was really missed was that finally consumers now have a way of trying the taste of a product before they buy it. We call it taking a product for a 'Taste Drive'!
