Edible Coffee Cups Coming To British KFC Stores

KFC coffee cup

Drink up then eat up? Well, yes, if you’re lucky enough to find a KFC in Britain that will soon be testing the product.

Dubbed the ‘Scoff-ee cup,’ the edible container is “made from biscuit, wrapped in sugar paper and lined with a layer of glorious white chocolate. It keeps the coffee hot and the cup crispy,” reports Alison Lynch for Metro.co.uk.

“The chocolate lining,” according to Stephanie Strom of The New York Times, “will melt and soften the crisp wafer in the same way that a biscotti softens when dipped in coffee.”

Designed in partnership with experimental food experts The Robin Collective, the cups are also infused with scents which are said to help improve your mood. What scents you ask? According to Anthony Domanico of CNET, they include scents such as coconut sun cream, freshly cut grass and wildflowers.

When asked about the scents, a spokesperson for The Robin Collective told Lynch that “These scents were used in our recipes as they have a natural ability to evoke the positive memories we associate with warm weather, sunshine and summer holidays. Things that make everyone smile.”

The name doesn’t really fit the product – they could have come up with something which people wouldn’t ‘scoff’ at – but the actual product does sound like a tasty treat. Who doesn’t like a dose of sugar and chocolate with their morning cup o’ joe?

Bring on the sugar rush – and make mine a double!
