Edible Gels

Now this is something I actually want to add to my gear bag. Tired of using those same bland, flavorless gels to color the light coming from your hot-shoe flash? Well try these new edible gels from General Mills. They're not sold in camera stores, though—you have to get them in the grocery store. They're called Fruit Roll-Ups, and while they've long been a popular snack, a desperate photographer recently found out they can also be used as flash gels. Talk about a tasty alternative. Read all about it at the Strobist blog.
