Edible Greeting Cards: Read It and Eat

Edible Greeting Cards

 

Getting a greeting card from a friend is awesome. Getting to eat it afterward is awesomer. You won’t be able to chew on that card unless it’s made by Eat The Fine Print though, or you’ll probably get a bad case of indigestion. The company specializes in making edible greeting cards that almost taste as good as the message written in it…almost.

The cards come in four flavors: blueberry, orange sorbet, key lime, and strawberry. In case you were wondering about dietary requirements, the cards are vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free, and they won’t ruin your diet since they only contain 42 calories.

Bacon And Cheese Grasshoppers In A Can? You Had Us At Bacon

1716_edible_bugs

Well… maybe not. We were about to pass on writing about these Edible Bugs in a can, because really… edible bugs? But then we saw that they’re more than just bugs: they’re flavored bugs in a can. Aside from the Bacon and Cheese Grasshoppers, you can expect to enjoy BBQ Bamboo Worms (Omphisa fuscidentalis), Nori Seaweed Armor Tail Scorpions (Mesobuthus martensii), Salted Queen Weaver Ants (Oecophylla), Sour Cream & Onion Dung Beetles (Circellium bacchus), Wasabi House Crickets (Gryllidae), Giant Waterbug Chili Paste (Nepidae)…

Sour Cream & Onion Dung Beetles? Yeah, you read that right. We’re not sure who these are really for. The really adventurous? The slightly insane? Or maybe someone preparing a feast for Halloween… Whatever the case, if you’re got a hankering for the creepy crawlies, it’ll cost you $40 for a box of 7 cans. The product comes from Thailand, and the “manufacturing facility is registered with Thai FDA (Food & Drug Administration) and the US FDA and has passed GMP (Good Food manufacturing). All individual food products are tested and registered with FDA.” We imagine this means they’ve gotten the green light for consumption stateside.

Iron Man Instant Noodles

Even stuff that you never thought would get made are getting made, like Iron Man 3 instant noodles.

It doesn’t come with a suit or any fire power, but it will give you that boost of energy your normally get after eating a particularly hearty meal.

Edible Eco-Spoon Lets You Help Mother Nature Out, One Bite At a Time

Edible Spoon

Whether you’re eating breakfast on the go because you woke up late or are having takeout for lunch, the common factor between both (and with most other meals that you eat outside a proper dining area) is plastic utensils. They might not seem like much since they’re relatively small and all, but a little goes a long way. And since it takes more than twenty years to fully decompose, I’d say we’ve got more than enough of these spoons currently sitting in our landfills.

So Triangle Tree came up with a solution in the form of edible spoons called the Eco-Spoon.

Edible Anatomical Love: Valentine’s Day Cards You Can Lick and Eat

Edible Love Notes0

Give your significant other a card that’s unlike any other this Valentine’s: cards created by Emily Evans and Miss Cakehea that feature an anatomical heart in between two skulls that you can actually eat. The design is a far cry from the usual cheesy and heart-filled cards you normally find on the racks, what with the skulls and all. But you’ll agree that it’s a pretty sweet card, albeit unusual, once you take notice of the words on the banner being held up by the doves: ‘Amor Eterno’, which translates to ‘eternal love.’

The other thing that makes these cards so unusual is the fact that they’re edible. Each card is made from vegetable oil, water and potato starch, and while it might not be the tastiest Valentine treat you’ve ever had, it’s probably the quirkiest.

Edible iPhone Case is Silly and Useless, But It Sure Looks Yummy

Edible iPhone Case

I’ve seen my fair share of silly, weird, and kooky iPhone cases. And while the edible Survival Senbei iPhone 5 case doesn’t look too different from other food-themed cases in the market, it’s certainly going to feel and taste different because it’s probably the only case out there that you can actually eat.

This case seems more of a novelty to me, because it doesn’t function very well as an actual case for your iPhone. In fact, the maker of these cases says that there’s a 9% chance that it’ll arrive broken and a 100% chance that it’ll shatter upon impact if you happen to drop your phone.

It’s priced at 3,818 Yen (about $48), which is pretty pricey for a non-case like the Survival Senbei.
