Overview

This idea hit me when considering going on a banana diet again. The only real problem with such a diet is the cravings for flavors other than banana. Why not make mouth strips similar to the Listerine ones only flavored with different combinations of esters to trick your brain into thinking you're eating more than just bananas.

The strips are made of Pullulan a mostly flavorless polymer coated in aromatic oils. I propose using this same principle only instead of aromatic oils we use different ester combinations to make different flavors.
