Agam commented on Edible coffee cups

Hi Kate
Thank you so much.
So far, I haven't heard or found about any edible coffee cup lids. Even for this idea, the coffee cups are sold without the lid.

Hi Naureen
I agree. The coffee cups are contributing to a major portion of landfill. The plastic waterproof lining on the cups make them non-recyclable.

Hi. The heat-resistance is achieved through the chocolate. It is safe for consumption. In fact many chocolate companies like Cadbury and Hersheys are making heat resistant chocolates so that it can withstand climate changes.
Other concerns about sugar intake and preferences are indeed an issue. But then coffee itself isn't very healthy. This concept is still in the experimentation phase. It is a start to a new idea of edible packaging which will most likely be modified and improved in the future.
