85 Outrageous Edible Objects

Eating Anything from Architecture to Gun Cakes

— August 12, 2009 — Lifestyle
The world would be a less hungry place if we had more edible objects, like food made to look like a product, or a product that won’t kill you if you eat it.

The 85 edible objects that have been arranged here are irregular items that you might not take for food, but you might not mind eating. Put on your bib and carefully dig into these 85 outrageous edible objects!

Implications - No longer satisfied with food items that simply taste good, consumers are looking for products that are also whimsical. Customers attracted to making purchases that are also entertaining will do better on the market than those which only feature a practical function.
