Now you can drink your coffee and eat it, too.

KFC is launching a cool new way to get your morning joe with the release of edible coffee cups in the U.K. The mini, cookie-lined wafer cups  aren’t just cute—they’re also laced with “mood enhancing scents meant to evoke memories of summer holidays and warm weather,” reports NY Daily News.

The feel good scents include coconut sunscreen, freshly cut grass and wild flowers.

“Not only do the edible cups taste amazing, but they smell delicious, too,” Brandy Wright of The Robin Collective, one of the food scientists that developed the edible packaging, said in a company statement. Wright added that these particular aromas were chosen because they “make everyone smile.”

The cups will soon be rolled out in KFC locations across the U.K. to promote Seattle’s Best Coffee.

We doubt these cups taste better than Dominique Ansel’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Milk Shot but this likely won’t be the last we’ve seen of edible food packaging in 2015.
