An Edible Coffee Cup? Fast Food Chain to Try It
It's a weekday morning, you're late for work, and you're rushing down the street chugging a cup of coffee. When you finish, you probably toss the cup in the nearest trash can—by some estimates, Americans throw out around 58 million disposable coffee cups a year. But if you were in the U.K., you might be able to eat the cup instead.
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 printed with logos from KFC and Seattle's Best Coffee.
