KFC To Offer Edible Coffee Cups In The UK

1

KFC recently announced that they will be offering Seattle’s Best coffee at its UK locations, and decided to take the launch a step further by pouring the brew into specially designed edible cups.

The chain teamed up with food scientists at The Robin Collective to create the ice cream cone-inspired vessel, dubbed “Scoff-ee Cup”, which is made from a biscuit wrapped in sugar paper and lined with a layer of white chocolate. Over time, the cup will soften to the point where it melts in your mouth.

The cups will also be enhanced with questionable “mood improving aromas”, such as “coconut sun cream”, “freshly cut grass” and “wild flowers” which are intended to “evoke the positive memories we associate with warm weather, sunshine and summer holidays.”

With names like “Kentucky Fried Chicken” and “Seattle’s Best Coffee”, you’d think the states would be the perfect place to debut such an item – but for the time being they will only be offered at a limited number of locations around the UK.
