According to KFC spokeswoman Jocelyn Bynoe “If our customers occasionally like to have their cake and eat it, why wouldn’t they want to have their cup and eat it, instead?”. They are on a research of developing a new edible packaging material that people can consume and should be feasible.
Three layers constitute the cup. The base material is of biscuit wafer which has a sugar coating and a white chocolate layer lining the inner part. The chocolate has the ability to tolerate the temperature of the coffee and it is of heat resistant type. Softening of the biscuit occurs when there is the melting of the white chocolate layer and it takes place in mouth. The cups not only taste good but also have pleasant aromas like coconut sun cream,wild flowers , freshly cut grass etc. They have infused such aromas into their product in order to attract their customer as per their mood. They make the customers feel fresh by such natural temperaments.

U.K is the first continent to taste the new product from KFC. It is there on the market in few numbers.The new product is yet to be introduced in other regions of the world. There are also other food companies who are experimenting with such innovative ideas. Companies like Lavazza, an Italian coffee brand has its edible cookie cup.
