    Admittedly I have a cold, but I just ate a cranberry bar and it smelled really strongly of fish! It tasted fine, thank goodness, but even the wrapper now smells fishy. Like smoked salmon.

    It hasn't been anywhere where it could get contaminated with the smell of fish. I'm quite perplexed?

    I suppose i'm just asking if anyone else has suddenly found their packs smell odd, or whether i've started having olfactory hallucinations.:confused:

    No - tho she put it straight in the bag and it's been there since, hanging up in my cupboard at work.

    it's only the inside of the wrapper that smelled, i think.

    maybe i've got a brain tumour...

    a-ha.

    olfactory hallucination is called 'phantosmia'.

    That'll be it then. how bizarre!
