Edible Instagrams! Your Pics On A Marshmallow Are A Sweet Idea from Boomf.
Thanks to my friend Scott, I now know that London company Boomf has come up with the idea of printing your Instagram photos on sweet, squishy completely edible marshmallows!
Each Boomf is a 24 calorie bite-sized 4cm by 4cm square treat printed with edible ink that will last for 6 months in their packaging or 3-5 days once opened. They come nine to a box for £12 (approximately $20) and shipping, even worldwide, is free.
Easy to do. Just log onto Instagram through their site here. Pick 9 photos from your own (or your followers) and they drop through your letterbox... Voila! They'll be sent to your address in a few weeks.
Nicely packaged, they make great gifts for friends, clients and promotional ideas as well:
