    In movies and TV it always looked like they cracked something in half. I’m wondering if they’ve been coming in a little pouch now for a long time but that cracking-in-half type is now movie shorthand for smelling salts so they keep doing it.

      The ones in the movies exist irl. In the same way youve never seen the tube ones, I’ve never seen them in a pouch until now

      Glass ampoules definitely still exist for smelling salts and similar. Honestly I assumed it was because they’d eat through most other viable packaging, now I dunno. But they definitely still exist. My roommate has some.
