If it can hold up to hot soup long enough to finish a bowl, it must be hard to chew.

You don't have it eat it yourself. If it's edible, it's biodegradable. Which means it'll decompose quickly and not take up space in a landfill. Or even if someone just throws it on the ground (littering), it's not much different than bread; an animal will eat it.

Interesting. The Indians I know often don't use utensils to start with - they use their clean hands, and naan bread to scoop up food. This looks like just an efficiently shaped naan bread type utensil. They will ask guests if they want to use utensils to eat, and supply them metal cutlery if requested.

Good for them!

I do think it's a good idea. I just don't think my teeth are up to it. But I have a compost pile, so I'd rather be able to put it there than in the trash.

Yes when my in-laws come they still use the chapatis/rotis,
tearing the roti into pieces and use it to scoop up the side dishes,sauce,keema, vegetable curry or thick lentil soup/daal.Cutlery is always on their placemats,but they prefer to eat that way, especially my aunties or uncles.It is quite a unique experience and I love to eat that way too at times.It is a custom wherever we go,wash hands and dig in

Edible lingerie has been around for a long time, so why not?
