Scoffee: KFC Edible Coffee Cups

KFC partnered with food scientists at The Robin Collective in the UK to develop a completely novel concept that could impact coffee consumers and chicken bucket enthusiasts everywhere: Edible coffee cups.

Metro UK released the news saying that the cups — which are called Scoffee cups — are made out of cookies shaped like cups that have been "wrapped in sugar paper and lined with a layer of glorious white chocolate." The outer edible wrapper is branded with KFC's logo, making it look like a regular coffee cup from the outside.

The sugar paper wrapper insulates the cookie part of the cup, which is designed to soften while consumers drink the warm beverage inside. The designers even infused the cups with different scents, "known to improve your mood." The cups have not yet been released in the UK, but sources suggest they could be in stores by summer.

Coffee anyone?
