Edible Tape

Keep that burrito together
  [vote for,

I hade burritos last night, and when I tried to fold it up and eat it it fell apart. So I had and idea. Make a tape that you can also eat. You can tape up the open bottem end. I have seen this sticky edible stuff on party cakes that they could put images on, maybe they could use that.

       Two words: rice paper.   

       Bunch more words: We could hand it off to the Germans and they could figure out how to store 10 gigs of data per roll on it!

       According to an old <few years, I forget> Discover or Omni magazine, they are working on edible velcro for just such an occasion. To help avoid 'burrito barf' or 'moo-shu shoot'...

       [note to self] and then, I can write more ideas on edible paper, so when I'm done with it I can eat it and not have to throw it away! and then, when I'm hungry again I can eat a tuna fish that I've fed mayonaisse to. Yeah ok I saw that movie too :).

       Tuck, then roll

       Much like Spring roll wraps, tortillas will stick together when wet, which is why you should never de-frost them in the microwave. There is something nasty about a wet, slimy tortilla though - it's all in the wrapping, and a couple of small ones often work better than one big one.

       Yes those dang burritos are tricky little basterds sometimes, then I would have clean cloths at the Andersons on taco night

       This "edible tape" would wind up as an adult novelty, I think.

       Simply use a tortilla strip (long and thin) which you tie around the food to make it "together." Or you could place molasses on the strip to make it stick like tape, as you suggested, with a great gain in flavor as well.

       baked, but hard to find. i have an empty container but i can't read the name of the product on the japanese label except that it's a product of NISSHO (NISSHA?).   

       it is sold as a breath mint (mint, peach, or lemon). it is a short stack of transparent film squares (almost exactly the width of cellotape) in a cute lil plastic case. they melt in your mouth but are very sturdy when dry. they could be made instead into longer strips.

       Useful for keeping food on plates on trains or boats as well.

       gnormal: We have those here in the states, made by many brands. I guess they are replacing altoids as the hip new way to freshen your breath if you are too lazy to brush them. Listerine makes them, and a few other companies, but I can't remember who. They tend to have obnoxious commercials.

       look at the 'sandwich staple' idea [link]. i am wise in every subject regarding the surrounding of food with bread-like layers. in fact, i just had the best sandwich. cheddar and branston pickle on skinny baguette. heaven.
