A Japanese stationery maker recently launched a line of edible memo note pads complete with a food ink pen that not only “looks” good enough to eat but is also actually safe for consumption.
According to foreign media reports, the stationery maker and printing company EINS Corporation based in Shiga came up with the product after taking into consideration for those fighting hunger pangs while taking important notes in class or meetings at work.
As no one wants their growling stomach to be heard while everyone is busy taking notes, the new memo pad and ink let you jot down information and also fill your stomach.
The product named “Kamihime” is a reference to the music audio players installed in most public toilets in Japan to cover the sound of those relieving themselves in the restroom as it covers up the sound of your hungry stomach.
It’s reported that the memo pads come in four flavors, including strawberry, vanilla, orange, and even a savory “curry” flavor.
The paper is made of starch powder, olive oil, and water while the ink contains food coloring and citric acid.
Though it’s unclear how the person will remember their notes if they eat them and whether these edible note pads are actually “tasty,” those who are close to succumbing to hunger can take a bite to lull them over until the next meal.
