There's always the zombie bread roll... Impressive if you do it right.

Taking 6 sugar packets, number them 1-6...on the number you wish to force, say 4, write the number 4 on BOTH sides of the packet, unbeknownst to the spec.

taking a napkin etc, write secretly your "prediction," 4.

proceed to play a game of elimination by throwing them lightly into the air, each time eliminating the ones that fall face down, that is, with NO number showing.

eventually, all will be eliminated, save the number 4, for obvious reasons.
destroy the evidence!!

enjoy this oldie but goodie.

Babakali.. I agree with you that sugar packet trick (i beleive called granulated 5000) is one of the strongest effects you can do with a sugar packet. Fools magicians too! They will think you are using a tt.

I wrote this in another thread but there is a mouth vanish I do that is really strong. Its a retension vanish with your mouth. You pop a candy in your mouth and do a "grossed out face" like thew candy isn't good, you hold it between your teeth and prtetend to take it out (suck it back in) now you either make it disseapear from your hand or pretend to throw it away. If you want to play ir as a joke say with a mouth full "itsh disshapeered" or just start biting in it doing this loud candy crunching noise. Can be amazing and quite humourous. Mac king described it in his book as a prank, where you take gum out of your mouth and pretend to stick it on someone;s shirt. Its a good little gag/trick..

So, what actually happens to the candy...do you swallow it or just hide it in your mouth?? sounds good.

AND I was unaware that this trick was marketed or whathaveyou...I wouldnt have given it...

an old magic man taught me this long ago...thought it was his....

hope no one is offended by me giving it away....at any rate enjoy it...

also, the ANCIENT effect of "tying" a knot in a cherry stem while its in your mouth come to mind.

simply tie one, put it in your mouth before you begin...and take out the tied one to their amazement!!

Let's see - Slydini's Sweet Salt works pretty well, though not entirely impromptu. His sugar packet trick where the sugar winds up back inside a sealed sugar packet is good. A TT salt pour plays excellently. Coin in bread roll works for me and the classic comedy "Vanishing Cracker" is a total hoot as the "woofle dust" is actually the crunched cracker! And, of course, the classic Michael Ammar "Mashed Potatos Vanish" that he will reluctantly talk about if you twist his arm strongly enough and is a remarkably funny magic moment (but on't expect to keep your job at that restaurant if you work there and do that effect!

There was a routine with switching the flavors of chewing gum published some time back and demonstrated at an Invocational, many years ago as well. I don't have the source handy at the moment.

Do the 123 overhead act,this can vanish almost any food and drinks on the table,and still entertaining almost the whole restaurant!please refer to Greg's work!
sometime you just need to think to convert both classic and modern magic into something different by using what is available rather:oh,i forget to bring my "magician's rope" or cards.You just have to pick up what you have and play with it!
Never ever have bad thought,you never know who is listening....

In his impromptu serie, Dan Harlan teaches some bunches of effect such as "at the coffie table", "at the party", and s.o. You'll find tons od impromptu trick to do with the material you'll find in such situations. Take a look!

Actually, Paul Harris has a ton of sugar packet stuff. And have you seen Osterlind's Sweeter & Lower? It's a complete restoration of a signed & opened packet of Sweet & Low.

There is an interesting effect in "THE MOVIE" that uses a wine glass and a Gummy Bear.

I have done several of the all-ready mentioned tricks... Strange, the biggest reaction I have ever recieved from a group while `playing with food' was the pre-cut banana. Go figure.. The coin in the roll is another good and quick little ploy.

Here is one that was probably posted in the wrong place and would fit here.

Well, at the sushi bar, I do cups and whatever with the tea cups, and I love the balancing Chopsticks (see the Mystery School book for that one!)
We also do a little Equivoque with the chosen coin wrapped in a larger bill for the tip.

Nice katracy...
years ago
I seen an older magi on the streets of NYC take out a tin of chewing tobacco and proceeded to eat it!!

He later showed me how he made it...took shredded coconut and chocolate syrup...mixed it up in a wet mound..placed it in a skoal tin...

not really impromptu, but itll certainly appear that way!

As for sugar packets, David Harkey's "Sweet Talk" from "Simply Harkey", and for a more elaborate, but killer routine from same said book, try "Crystals".
Also, Gregory Wilson's "Vanish 5000". This won't seem like much when you read it but, trust me, it's good.

Giovanni had a great idea for eating a lit cigar. I've done this. It's also a stunner. It can be found in his book "The Amazing Cigar".

Somebody had a "Karate Cracker" effect. Was that Paul Harris?
It's all in the reflexes.

Another great stage or parlor trick can be found in Jim Steinmeyer's "Conjuring" column in MAGIC Magazine a few years back. It's called "Apples & Oranges" and it's a brilliant implementation of the old Piano Card Trick. Very deceptive and fun to do . And practically self-working!
This routine can be found more recently in Jim's "The Conjuring Anthology", a collection of all the effects from the aforementioned monthly column with a few new ones added.
There's also a great popcorn effect and one using Chinese food.
It's all in the reflexes.

Michael Ammar's Bite Off Plate comes to mind. Also the Salt Trick taught by Darwin in Darwin's Encyclopedia of Thumb Tip Magic.

Check out the Cheetah's Handbook Vol. 2 for two routines from Kostya Kimlet. The first is a fusing of two cherries together by their stems, and the second is a visual restoration of an eaten chicken wing. Very offbeat, and both impromptu should you find yourself in a situation with cherries or buffalo wings!

I once did the 3 balls routine for kids with grapes. At the end of the routine, where all the grapes vanish, I had difficulty in swallowing, but I folled them!
