Here’s the ultimate GREEN coffee cup.
It’s makes sense to have a coffee cup that you can eat! Introducing the “cookie cup.”
KFC will be testing out the concept this summer, but they’re not the first to do so, as Lavazza tried it out with espresso cups. KFC will be the first “chain” to test the concept, giving a whole new meaning to “finger licking good.”
From Fast Coexist:
In an experiment this summer, KFC will be offering coffee served in edible cookie cups that look sort of like the standard paper version; the wrapper, made of sugar, is even printed with logos from KFC and Seattle’s Best Coffee. Along with a layer of heat-resistant white chocolate, the sugar wrapper insulates the cookie cup as someone drinks.
From an environmental perspective, you’re probably going to want to keep your travel mug. But Fegen thinks the idea of edible coffee cups is worth exploring further. “I think it’s something really interesting for the world to think about—you actually don’t have to have a paper or plastic cup, you could have something else. We’ve got an edible product—why not make the packaging edible too?”
I like the idea the same way I like the ice cream cone. But sometimes I just want a cup!
You know that Liberals will call the people who don’t want the edible cup, “environmental terrorists.”
I wonder if the cups will come with calorie warnings? Will overweight people be given a choice?
These and other questions are begging for answers!
