Are you HUNGRY or do you just crave the flavor? (my favorite is that Mustard is under the heading Exotic.)

It's times like this I wish the internet was scratch and sniff.

I think I'd wear the Memphis BBQ spray.

You of course mean scratch and lick.

Like countless others, I crave the flavor.

In the inventor's bio, his PR geniuses came up with this gem:

"one of the nation’s top R&D culinarians."

I almost expect to see stints at Bridgestone and Dow in his vitae.

While I can see the thought behind this, I can also see someone spraying this nasty crap directly into their mouth or spraying banana split on their banana split and doubling up the flavor.

And I'm sorry but Smoked Bacon should not be available in spray form. Maybe as a jelly bean but not as a spray. Though it would be alot of fun to mess with the neighborhood dogs and the bacon spray.

My first thought was "OOO" that would be fun to play with......hehehehehe..........

Flavor Sprays are people! They're people!!

Fascinating. If these were cheaply and readily available, I'd never buy butter-flavored popcorn again.

Is it wrong that my mouth is watering from thinking about spraying everything with smoked bacon and ranch?

My mother cannot cook, she never has been. Growing up wasn't painful, as I never had something to reference against... until college. The college cafeteria food was terrific! Not really, but with my pallette, hell yes. I see this as a cure for people that cannot cook; just taste-test the food and if it's found lacking, then spray on the correct taste. Brilliant!

there are whole menus! 3 course meals, one spray each.

My guess is that dogs wouldn't be fooled, that they'd only smell chemicals.

Why is mustard on their list? Mustard's not all that bad for you. It's not like it's mayo or something -- it's mustard! Ground up seeds and vinegar!

Also -- why isn't "buttery" already available? Wouldn't that be the first one to come up with? Is it that much easier to make a spray bacon than spray butter? Don't they already have spray butter?

And what the hell is "Ice Blue Salt"?

Please someone explain Ice Blue Salt spray to me. Is it just me or does that sound like something they spray on the roads in winter?

but certainly this will NOT satisfy my urge to purge... leaving my somewhat damp but empty.

cleverusername: This American Life recently had a bit about a girl whose mother cooked her only chicken every night during her childhood, and when she started eating at the the cafeteria in high school she was awed at their cooking skills, that they could make different things every day.

What was the name of that dot-bomb that was going to allow you to smell things on the net? Scent-o-matic or something? E-scent? I-Scent 2000 I can't remember...Anyone?

But Mustard is exotic! And, as macadamiaranch points out, not bad for you.

Oh my God. Parmesan cheese spray?

Mind you, I won't even use margarine because I think highly manipulated foods are gross and bad for you, but something like this would really come in handy if you absolutely had to diet...

In the little opening movie, the hand is spraying "chocolate fudge" on everything... that slab of prime rib, and the salad, too. I wonder if chocolate fudge is just good on everything, or what.

I, for one, am NOT replacing my gravy with spray-on flavor. That would just be wrong!
