It looks like something straight out of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but it’s not a story.
Charlie Harry Francis loves inventing things with food. But he doesn’t invent them in the way that you or I would, perhaps. Having grown up on an ice cream farm in South Wales with his dad, an ice cream maker, and his mom, a baker and confectionary maker, Charlie loves finding new ways to deliver food to people.
So far, as his website explains, he’s invented: “the Popcorn Hairdryer, Nitro Ice Cream Buggy, Soup Washing Machine, Gramophone Ice Cream Pottery Wheel, Edible Mist Machine, Instant Lollipop Maker, Whirligig Candyfloss Whirlwind, Levitron Cocktail levitating Device, Glow in the Dark Ice Cream and the Olfactic Dog Nose.”
His latest creation, featured in the video below, is a machine that uses ultrasonic vaporization to create a microscopic mist. You suck this mist through a straw and get an instant flavor hit. And you can enjoy over two hundred flavors this way! This includes everything you could imagine from fois gras and tiramisu to butter, popcorn and beyond. And it’s all calorie free.
It’s called the Edible Mist Machine and it’s created by Charlie and his company Lick Me I’m Delicious. As Charlie explains,”It messes with your mind because your brain expects something to be in your mouth. It’s a pretty fun machine, the range of flavours is massive and we can also produce you a personalised mist from pretty much anything in the World like your favourite book or even your hair. And it’s zero calories.”
