Weird: the lickable Jaffa Cake elevator

Readers from the UK will be familiar with Jaffa Cakes – a sponge base with a layer of orange jelly that’s covered in chocolate – a yummy treat that’s been the subject of much debate over the years on whether it’s a biscuit or a cake.

Inspired by Willy Wonka, manufacturer McVities has installed an elevator in a London office building that has 1,325 Jaffa Cakes stuck to its walls which you can lick as you go up and down. Classy. Apparently the cakes are removed once licked by someone who must have drawn the short straw in community service deployments.

Now I like a Jaffa Cake but this is just horrific. Let’s hope it’s revealed as a hoax – imagine being number 1,000…?
