    Absolutely.  I like the flavor of gum arabic.  It is also gluten-free, vegan, and low in calories.  It's also a component in many products such as chewing gum, soft drinks, and icing. 

    It also has been confirmed to have several therapeutic actions, such as being hypoglycemic, antidiabetic, antioxidant, immunomodulatory, and antiulcer. Lick away.

    The glue has no chemicals.  It is just pure dried frog slime with no additives.  Enjoy mailing your Christmas cards.

    If I'm just doing one, sure. But if i had to do that many, I'd have a piece of wet sponge.

    No I buy the self sealing envelopes and then I tape them just to make sure they are closed.

      Same here.I always reinforce the envelope seal with a layer of tape for security.

    I haven't sent an envelope in years, but I would lick my finger and use that wet finger to seal the envelope.
