A Throwback to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

When I was a kid I dreamed of a place like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. After all, Willy Wonka was the dreamer of dreams!

So when I heard this week that scratch and sniff wallpaper is now available, all I could think of was that scene from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory where the kids lick the wallpaper. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pwvB4_Te8A]

Fortunately, no one has manufactured editable wallpaper, but the idea of scratch and sniff wallpaper is pretty novel. Currently, Flavor Paper has three “flavors” in its Fruit Cocktail Collection – Cherry, Banana and Tutti Frutti.

Not sure how practical scratch and sniff wallpaper is and I highly doubt I would ever put it in my home. But it certainly attracts media attention and if I was ever in Brooklyn close to Flavor Paper’s showroom, I would stop in just to see it!
