I hate the after party pick up; all those glasses to wash just make me crazy. So how excited was I to discover that three budding entrepreneurs from the N.L.Dalmia Institute of Management Studies and Research have created edible glassware.
These three budding entrepreneur's collectively developed Jellobite, a biodegradable, edible cup. Durvesh Galvankar, Hardik Mehta and Shruti Kanodia entered the prototype into a jelly mold contest and realized it could work as glassware too.
The glassware comes in several flavors including rosemary-beet, lemon basil and several Absolut-branded varieties to pair with cocktails and mocktails. If you fill up on glassware and just can’t eat another bite it can be composted.
These useful tumblers are made from agar a seaweed derived substitute for gelatin. That alone appeals to the vegetarian crowd.
The design collective is hoping to raise $10,000 in capital to launch the product in the near future. You won’t see much else besides the glasses. Hardik Mehta said that “Plates did not work out too well.”
Just hope they are not infringing on the “Jello” name or trademark. It would be so unfortunate if they did.
