Lickable elevator lined with 1,325 Jaffa Cakes

Office firm install world's first lickable elevator lined with 1,325 Jaffa Cakes

An imaginative office firm have tried to lift the mood of their workers - by installing the world's first lickable elevator in their building.

The edible lift inside the offices of communications firm Engine has been lined with 1,325 Jaffa Cakes, with staff bizarrely encouraged to lick the walls for an orangey mood boost.

Food technicians and artists took a month to install the unique walls inside the lift, although it seems not much thought was given to hygiene prior to the stunt.

McVitie's Jaffa Cakes said they took inspiration from the glass elevator in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory when making the lift.

Whether staff are keen to taste already-licked Jaffa Cakes (assuming they don't go stale) remains to be seen.

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.'
