Given the developed world’s fondness for combining vodka with Jell-O, it was only a matter of time until someone figured out how to pour vodka into an actual glass made of Jell-O.
That someone is a product design company called The Way We See the World. The group has come up with Jelloware, a line of edible cups that — surprise, surprise — were apparently dreamed up as some sort of cross-promotion with Absolut. They come in flavors like blackberry-mint, blood orange, and grapefruit, and are all vegan since they use agar-agar in place of gelatin. The cups serve as a sort of edible Rorschach test — you’ll either think they’re disgusting or inspired — but if nothing else, at least they can be composted.
