World's first lick-able lift


Like something out of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, a Jaffa Cake-filled lick-able lift has been installed in the offices of one London communications agency.

The unique (genius?) innovation – housed in the company offices of the Engine agency in central London - has 1,325 McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes stuck to its walls as wallpaper. It took a month for food technicians and artists to create the quirky alternative to traditional glass or metal elevator walls.

ABOVE: The Jaffa Cake-filled lick-able lift. Let's not even talk about the hygiene issues, ok?

Speaking about the Willy Wonka-inspired design, McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes chief Philippa Tilley said: “We are all about bringing a bit more fun to life. This was the perfect way to get a little joy straight to stressed-out office workers.”
