KFC Fuelling Our Obesity Crisis With Cups You Can EAT

By Gary Cutlack on at

Chicken chain KFC is set to bring edible cups to the UK, just in case you can't cram enough calories and sugar into your meal by eating all the chips, meat, batter and puddings you can waddle back to your table with.

According to the NYT, KFC is about to start a trial of the cup you can eat in select UK branches, offering a "wafer coated in sugar paper and lined with a heat-resistant white chocolate" to drink your branded coffee out of. It's apparently designed as more of a nod to sustainable packaging, not simply a way to get our fatties to eat even more. [NYT via Time]
