Willy Wonka in real life! New EDIBLE nail polish tastes like an entire two course meal when you lick it
- Food scientists have created a new edible nail polish that tastes like a full meal
- The treat comes infused with flavours of smokey barbecue ribs and onion rings
- This is followed by a second course consisting of a classic blueberry pie sundae
- The quirky offering is part of a campaign to raise funds to prevent child violence
Food scientists have made the impossible a reality with the creation of an edible nail polish – one that ‘tastes just like a two-course meal’.
The inspired offering, which takes its cues from Willy Wonka’s Three-Course chewing gum, is the brainchild of Australian food delivery service Deliveroo.
Foodies keen to try the teal-coloured treat will be thrilled the first course of the lik-able varnish tastes of smokey barbecue ribs with a side of onion rings.
This is followed by an equally moreish dessert consisting of a classic blueberry pie sundae.

The edible nail varnish comes infused with blueberry juice, natural flavours and onion rings
The nail polish, which costs $20 a bottle, is infused with blueberry juice, natural flavours and onion rings.
While the creators encourage a ‘light nibbling’, they advise against over-indulging and state the nail polish is definitely not a meal.
The limited-edition varnish named Polished Meal will raise funds for Polished Man – an annual campaign that raises funds to help children who are at risk or have suffered violence.
Polished Man challenges men and women to paint their fingernails – in any shade or style – to highlight the fact that one child dies every five minutes as a result of violence.
Celebrities including Chris Hemsworth, Zac Efron and Kelly Slater have all backed the cause and proudly displayed nail polish in recent years.
Food delivery service Deliveroo is giving 100 per cent of all funds raised through sales of Polish Meal nail polish directly to the cause Polished Man
According to Joe Satari from Deliveroo, the organisation was thrilled its food scientists were able to come up with such a unique offering in support of the cause.
‘We’re backing the incredible charity and initiative, that is Polished Man! By doing so, we hope to help raise the largest amount in donations to date,’ he said.
Deliveroo has additionally pledged $100,000 to reward the first 5,000 fundraisers who raise and donate $20 or more to Polished Man with Deliveroo credit to the same value.
The food delivery service will also be encouraging riders to raise funds and will match every cent up to a further $10,000.
Polished Meal will be available in Melbourne and Sydney via the Deliveroo app from October 9th for $20 whilst stocks last.
