Have Your Coffee And Your Cup, Too

A shot of hot espresso, served in the “Scoff-ee Cup.”

Diners at KFC, all through Britain, will soon be able to drink their coffee—and eat their cup, too.

To mark the launch of the Starbucks-owned Seattle’s Best Coffee at its outlets in the U.K., the fast-food chain will be rolling out an edible cup made from wafer, wrapped in a paper, safe to eat, and lined with a layer of white chocolate to keep the cup crispy; the beverage, hot.

The “Cookie Cup,” made for Lavazza.

Lavazza, the Italian coffee brand, also offers edible packaging: cookie cups made from pastry, coated with an icing sugar that both sweetens it, and holds it together.
