KFC UK To Offer Coffee In An Edible Cup

kfc-scoffee-cup-2

It seems KFC will be offering Seattle’s Best Coffee branded brew in a special drinking vessel soon: edible cups. That’s right, after you’re done sipping on your cup o’ Joe, you can just eat the container it came in. KFC did this by partnering up with

food scientists at The Robin Collective to create the ice cream cone-inspired vessel, dubbed “Scoff-ee Cup”, which is made from a biscuit wrapped in sugar paper and lined with a layer of white chocolate. Over time, the cup will soften to the point where it melts in your mouth.

The cups will also be enhanced with questionable “mood improving aromas”, such as “coconut sun cream”, “freshly cut grass” and “wild flowers” which are intended to “evoke the positive memories we associate with warm weather, sunshine and summer holidays.”

We don’t know for how long the cups are able to keep the liquid in without leaking, but for those of you who like to sip on cold coffee throughout the day (like me), this might be a risky proposition.

The cups are being introduced to mark the launch of KFC’s Seattle’s Best Coffee across its UK branches. They aren’t ready yet, so don’t go running to your local branch just yet; the hope is that they will be by summer.

Chill to Warm Up: Icycls are Fruit-Flavored Ice Pops Made With Vodka

Icycl

If you can’t handle regular shots or just feel like trying out something new, then you might want to stock up on these Icycls. They bring something new and different to liquor that makes it easier for you to get your liquor fix. They’re basically fruit-flavored ice pops made with vodka for that extra kick.

They contain 6.4% ABV, so you should definitely hide them away in your freezer where kids can’t find them.

Invisible Boyfriend (And Girlfriend) Is A Service That Lets You Fake Being In A Relationship

invisible-girlfriend-boyfriend

Oh let’s face it, it’s never easy to admit you’ve been on the shelf, gathering dust, for the last couple of years. Maybe you liked the idea of curling up with your four cats on a Friday night while watching Frazier reruns at one point, but that’s gotten old fast. And while you may have a bit of trouble actually doing something about it, Invisible Girlfriend and Invisible Boyfriend hopes to make it easier for you to at least give the appearance of being shacked up. The service will provide you with all the evidence you need to successfully fake having an SO, by providing you everything from pictures, to a credible backstory, to an automated SMS companion and possibly at one point a social media profile you can “be in a relationship with” (provided of course this doesn’t violate any TOS, which seems unlikely). But yes, you read that right, you can text your fake boy(girl)friend, and they’ll answer right back!

Right now the company is in a private beta, and you’ll have to apply to join. Once in (and don’t ask us how tight the admission is, because we don’t know), you’ll be all set to create your virtual boyfriend/girlfriend.

Anti-Paparazzi Collection Makes You Unphotographable

Anti-Paparazzi Collection

You might not be as popular or sought after by paparazzi, but you’ll find the Anti-Paparazzi amusing, if not relevant, if you value your privacy. The collection currently includes a blazer, scarf, and hooded jacket, but creator Chris Holmes might add more types of clothing depending on the need or demand for it.

Basically, the clothing line uses reflective thread so it reflects light back from cameras, effectively ruining the photo in the process. Whether it’s a digital camera or a phone camera, these threads have got you covered.

Pong Traffic Light Lets You Play With Folks On the Other Side

Pong Traffic Light

 

Pong. What’s not to like? It’s a fun, simple game that makes you forget your problems…until the next stoplight, that is. This would be the case if you were playing Pong on these newly-installed systems that are attached to the base of traffic lights in Germany. When the lights are green, pedestrians can play a round of Pong with folks who are on the other side of the road while they wait.

Hit the break for a video of the awesome street Pong system!

The Whisker Dam Protects Your ‘Stache From Dipping Into Your Suds

whisker-dam-7

It’s the little inventions that get us excited. Tiny doodads that can make a world of difference in some settings. Take the Whisker Dam for instance. It’s a metal object whose only purpose is to keep your moustache dry while you drink beer. This is a problem any self-respecting moustachioed man will know about: suds-infused hairs following a good sip of a properly poured beer. Well, the Whisker Dam attaches to almost any drinking vessel and creates a smaller opening through which your beer can flow, but which keeps your face adornments nice and dry.

The Whisker Dam is an easy to use solution for guarding your stache’ from the indulgent beverages one may consume. When it comes to moustache guards you will not find a more premium product. Made from 100% Copper, dressed with a timeless patina and coated with a non-toxic barrier, the Whisker Dam has been handcrafted to perfection.

Granted, you may also miss out on the head itself, which beer aficionados will tsk-tsk you for, but if all you want is to get some liquid cereal down your gullet without making a mess of your facial hair, we totally dig the $20 purchase.

New Pills Make Farts Smell Like Chocolate

chocolate-fart-pills

The Holidays are under way, and that means you’ll soon be putting your intestinal tract through some rigorous quality testing. Much gasses will be made, and wouldn’t it be great if these didn’t suffocate your guests? A 65 year old French man, Christian Poincheval, claims to have invented pills that can give your flatulence the sweet smell of chocolate. He sells these on his website at the reasonable rate of $12.50 for 60 capsules, and apparently has been selling similar pills that make your farts smell of roses for years. Whether any of the fart fragrances actually works is not known, but we’d love to hear from anyone that’s tried it.

Magnifying Spoon Lets You Pick Out Tiny Hairs From Your Soup

Magnifying-spoon-1

You must be a special person, if you worry enough about possible contaminants in your food that you’d consider buying the Magnifying Spoon. But if someone out there bothered to make it, there’s a chance people out there will buy it. It’s simply a magnifying glass shaped into a spoon-like apparatus. You can hover it above your grub, pick out any tiny things you spot that you think shouldn’t be there, and then take a sip. We don’t know how much it costs, but apparently you can contact the shop and have one made.
