From the Too Weird Not to Write About File …
If you’ve ever wanted to celebrate a birthday or a big game with an inspiring pie instead of a cake, now you can.
New on the sports scene is Pizza Prints, which is exactly what it sounds like — an edible pizza decoration — which has been licensed for home and commercial use (yes, that means delivery) by the NBA, World Wrestling Entertainment (a licensing deal unveiled today) and more than 80 colleges and universities.
Other “Happy Birthday” related images — as well as Nickelodeon characters such as Dora The Explorer — also are available … and the company apparently is pursuing a deal with the NFL.
The prints are slightly cheese-flavored and calorie-free. They are made from starch and food coloring just like what you see on birthday cakes. Pizza Prints are simply applied to a warm cheese or appropriately accommodating pizza — one where cheese-oppressive toppings are not center-pie — and the logo melts right in.
And, with a shelf life of at least two years, they just might be collectible for some dedicated fans. (No word on a book value … )
Pizza Prints is a creation of the Lucks Company, which is a food decorating business based in Tacoma, Wash. For more on Pizza Prints? Click here.
