what's that smell?

the smelly smencil that's what. smencils are gourmet scented pencils made entirely of recycled newspapers.
  • Sheets of 100% recycled newspaper are rolled tightly around a #2 graphite-writing core until pencils of typical thickness are formed.
  • Then they are hardened, allowing them to be sharpened just like a wood pencil.
  • Next the Gourmet Smencil is soaked with a liquid gourmet scent.
  • Once dry, the erasers are attached and flavor sticker is wrapped around the Smencil to identify what Scent was infused into the Smencil.

smencils come in all of these eraser nibbling flavors: grape, cherry, bubble gum, very berry, cotton candy, chocolate, watermelon, root beer, orange, tropical fruit and your own custom flavors too! (my god imagine the possibilities...lamb with a garlic rosemary marinade? fresh baked sour dough bread? jamba juice store? )

forget the nibbling, you'll want to shove a whole handful into your mouth at once. smencils

but they come in a plastic package...kind of defeats the purpose of using recycled paper...

like i said before, i just wanted to put the word 'smencil' in everyone's lexicon. smencil. let's say it out loud. see? fun.
