Here's What Happened To IncrEdible Eats After Shark Tank
By CHASE SHUSTACK
Engineer Dinesh Tadepalli came up with IncrEdible Eats to reduce the waste generated by disposable plastic utensils. Here’s what happened to the company — which makes edible cutlery — after Shark Tank’s Lori Greiner invested in the business for $500,000 with 12% of the revenue.
After some initial setbacks during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dinesh has since partnered with some food services and ice cream shops to help expand his reach. The company is doing so well that it’s adding straws, sporks, chopsticks, knives, and even bowls to its upcoming product list.
Food-tech website THE SPOON reviewed IncrEdible Eats and found that the remarkably sturdy spoons didn’t crumble or break down when exposed to hot or cold liquids. They also noted that the vanilla spoons tasted like Nilla wafers, while the oregano spoons tasted like vegetable crackers.
If you’re looking to try these edible utensils, you can buy them from the company’s website at $8.99 for a 15-pack of the revamped flavored spoons — called 2.0 — and at $11.99 for a 15-pack of the large 2.0 spoons. And if you’re wondering, the spoons are about 20 calories each.
