Prepare to Be Incredibly Jealous of KFC U.K.’s New Edible Cookie Coffee Cups
On Tuesday, KFC unveiled a completely edible cookie coffee cup in the U.K. Unlike previous snackable cups, this vessel is made from a special wafer-like biscuit that is wrapped in sugar paper and lined with a layer of heat-resistant white chocolate. So the coffee stays hot and the cup stays nice and crispy.
Because these so-called “Scoff-ee Cups” are being released in conjunction with KFC and Seattle’s Best’s partnership in the U.K., they’re designed to look like the coffee company’s red and white logo cups.
“We’ve infused different cups with a variety of ambient aromas including coconut sun cream, freshly cut grass and wild flowers,” a spokesperson for The Robin Collective said. “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 cups are still under development, but KFC plans to bring them to some U.K. stores this year. There are no U.S. plans at this time, which leaves us wondering yet again: Why do Brits get all the good stuff?
