Edible CDs

All this talk of edible non-edible DVDs is making me hungry

Laser-imprinted sugar glass discs.

Might have to make them a bit thicker than regular CDs, but I think it is feasible.

Preston's Candy & Ice Cream http://www.prestonscandy.com
They make chocolate CDs. Not functional, but I think they come in a CD case! [monkeywidget, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

       Pop it in your CD drive and watch Capn Crunch commercials!

       Good for that mid-morning sugar craving while stuck at the office. Can we make them in pixie stick flavors?

       Novel for practical jokes. Mid-meeting. Everybody's tense. Suddenly, blurt out "I CAN'T TAKE IT ANY MORE!" as you ingest an M$ office lookalike.

       waterm, how many tense meetings have *you* been stuck in? :-)   

       (too much insight for a 13 year old!)
Susen, Aug 13 2002
  

       Not if he is a boy scout. Look up your local troop, and sit through a meeting as you watch frazzled adult leaders try to get 5 groups of 8 kids to take care of a task as simple as creating a menu for 2-day campout.

       Thanks. I help out at my dad's office from time. Making coffee runs and the like, but I butt in when necessary. =D [By the way, on my 'lookalike' comment: Ice cream parlors here have a service they call Freeze Frame-- in which an image is printed on sugar 'paper' and put on a cake. Is this viable here?]
watermelancholy, Aug 13 2002
  

       I know it wasn't an actual functioning CD, but Microsoft did distribute chocolate CD's in a jewel case at a seminar I attended a couple of years ago. I think it may have been DevDays.

       1) Open AOL CD case. Insert into CD-ROM drive
2) Follow onscreen directions
3) Eject CD
4) Peel off foil and enjoy a tart citrus or fresh berry flavor treat.
  

       I don't think they'd work quite the same in the microwave, however..
Mr Burns, Aug 13 2002
  

       Apparently FreezeFrame is a trademark of Baskin & Robbin. But it still sounds very viable for CDs.
watermelancholy, Aug 13 2002
  

       Keep them away from CD burners.
FarmerJohn, Aug 13 2002
  

       <off-topic>FreezeFrame is also a trademark of Optical and Electronic Research.</off-topic>

       UB: Anything more than 5-6 seconds and you're looking to enjoy a side order of fried magnetron as well..
Mr Burns, Aug 13 2002
  

       Glad you rectified that before I had to institute a google search. I thought you were insulting Pop.
watermelancholy, Aug 13 2002
  

       ok, so if you buy a new album and it turns out you think it sucks, then you eat it? lol....after paying like $20 for it too cause of all the copyright

       UB: As long as lentil flour contains a small percentage of water, it probably would not hurt the microwave. I don't even know what a poppadum is, in my limited experience with food consumption..
Mr Burns, Aug 14 2002
  

       Poppadum preach...   

       I don't think breadible CD's would last very long. And who would market the requisite players? Pan-asonic?   

       This idea is still good, though, especially if the sugar discs actually played music.
polartomato, Aug 16 2002
  

       Lamb cops?   

       Different flavo(u)rs for different music. I'm imagining Ozzy Razzberry or Pepsi Brittney.   

       I bet Oasis would taste horrible.
waugsqueke, Aug 16 2002
  

       And then you could have a special toilet which plays the CD when it's coming out the old digestion system
amazing, Aug 16 2002
  

       OH NO! I just ate my favorite song. DANG!
jeffman, Jul 25 2003
  

       Why is my CD player covered in ants?
Worldgineer, Nov 20 2003
  

       Perfect for The Archies, I should imagine.
Fishrat, Jul 28 2004
  

       Basically, this won't work because the disc will fly apart at operating RPM. However, I like it anyway.
zigness, Mar 15 2006
  

       I don't think sugar glass would fall apart... What can the reflective inside be made of?
