Does your country still have lickable stamps, and do you enjoy doing it?

Recently I was sealing an envelope and noticed that it had a lickable seal. I haven't licked one of those in ages.

This made me think, does anyone use the lickable stamps anymore?

EDIT: And if so, do you enjoy it?

I'm not sure. I buy my stamps out of our petty cash drawer at work, and those are always in sticker rolls.

I actually like the taste of stamps. I'm weird.

And this is stopping you from licking them, why?

I only buy the peel and stick kind on a sheet or on a roll. I have no idea if they have the lickable kind in the US any more. Actually, I do so much email and bill paying online I don't use the post office or postal stamps much anymore.

I hated that nasty glue on the back. Ew!

They finally got rid of the lickable deposit envelopes at TD bank. I was so happy.

I use the peel and stick stamps. Can't remember the last time that I came across a stamp that had to be licked.

it was always great when you licked a stamp....never realizing it was still stuck to your tongue and gagged on it good times...good times.....

Same here. The stamps I buy are all stickers.

I do still lick the deposit envelopes at the ATM though.

But then you have to spit out whatever glue went into your mouth.

Because I work with a bunch of greasey computer geeks and I'd never consider licking something they may have touched!

(seriously though, one guy got fired because he never showered and wore the same clothes every day )
