If you crave a biscuit with your daily caffeine fix, then you might want to head to your nearest KFC.

Because the fast food chain's latest product is the Scoff-ee cup - an edible coffee container made out of biscuit and chocolate.

The fast food chain will be selling munchable mugs

We aren't sure how long this latest invention will last against the heat of boiling hot water but apparently the creators have got that under control.

Made with a thick biscuit, the inside of the cup is lined with white chocolate and the outsides are coated in a layer of sugar paper to imitate an actual coffee cup – pretty clever, huh?

The munchable mug has been designed to celebrate the launch of Seattle's Best Coffee in KFC's UK branches and aims to keep your coffee hot and still give you a crunchy biscuit to munch on after.

And if that wasn't enough, they've tried taking it that extra step further, infusing the cups with scents to boost your mood.

A spokesman for the scientists was quoted in the Daily Mail, stating: "Ambient aromas including coconut, sun cream, freshly cut grass and wild flowers evoke the positive memories we associate with warm weather, sunshine and summer holidays."

We're not sure how they'll turn out, but we're willing to give them a try!
