Did your kit come with Nottingham? I've gotten a flavor that might be described as "latex-y" from it most of the time I've used it. I've since stopped, obviously.

"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion.... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.... The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." - Thomas Jefferson, in letter to William S. Smith, 1787
