KFC is Testing Edible Coffee Cups in UK

submitted on February 27, 2015 by HouTex in "Products / Gadgets"
Here's an idea that addresses consumer concerns about the environmental impact of packaging - KFC will be testing a limited edition edible "Scoff-ee" cup later this year when they introduce Seattle's Best coffee at select UK restaurants. It's made of a thin cookie wafer coated in sugar paper and lined with heat-resistant white chocolate. The chocolate lining will melt slowly, sweetening the coffee and softening the crisp wafer like a biscotti softens when dipped in coffee.

Sounds good! Hope it comes to the U.S. soon. I would try it, would you?
Although, KFC is not my idea of a place to order coffee....





Other project ideas have suggested multi-purpose containers like these in the past; they may be interesting and innovative, but they weren't successful:
- Plantable coffee cup with wildflower seeds - http://www.cnet.com/news/plant.....ur-coffee/
- Plantable wrapping paper with broccoli seeds - http://www.cnet.com/news/unwra.....the-paper/
- Sprout pencils that grow into a plant - http://www.cnet.com/news/sprou.....an-eraser/
- Flower shotgun shells - http://www.cnet.com/news/for-e.....l-of-seed/
