KFC is Launching Edible Coffee Cups Made of Cookies and Chocolate
KFC has taken a page out of pastry chef Dominique Ansel’s book with the introduction of an edible coffee cup — made of a thin biscuit wrapped in sugar paper and lined with white chocolate — that look like they’ll be available in stores later this year. The cups were invented to mark the launch of Seattle’s Best Coffee in KFC’s U.K. locations.
Unfortunately, that means the cups are headed only for the U.K., at least for now.
Before you even bring it up, yes, we do think it’s weird that England gets to try a coffee cup cookie before the United States, given that the “K” in “KFC” stands for Kentucky. But it is what it is.
The cookie shot-esque “Scoff-ee Cups,” as they’re called, were reportedly developed in partnership with food scientists at the Robin Collective, and even feature scents that are supposed to improve your mood.
“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 collective told Metro.
“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.”
KFC’s Scoff-ee Cups are expected to be available in stores within the next several months.
