Odd Edibilities

Consumers are tasting their way into unexpectedly consumable goods

Implications - A variety of products that wouldn’t traditionally be eaten now come in edible variations including gold, silver, flowers, picnic baskets, menus, chess sets, LEGO and business cards. A product that is edible instantly achieves more appeal than its traditional version. When it comes to consuming luxuries like gold and silver, people feel they can infuse themselves from the inside out in opulence, while adding a consumable attribute to a product raises hype, encourages interaction and makes it more covetable and intriguing.
