A German start-up company markets a baking mixture called QKies. Besides the cookie dough, the package also includes edible printed QR codes as a topping. The baked cookies can be used as invitations, give-aways or promotional incentives.

It adds a new function to something basic like food and thereby fits into the spirit of our time. What other inventions are imaginable for brands? Edible envelopes? Or chewing gum, which enables contactless payment?
