The Future of Coffee Creamers

Move over single-serve plastic coffee creamers! Introducing the dissolvable milk pod!

A German researcher has developed a pod with a single serving of milk, encapsulated in a sugar crust. The coffee will dissolve the sugar, and the sugar and milk are released into the coffee.

The current plastic containers of coffee creamers are not usually recyclable. So these new dissolvable pods could reduce waste.

The new milk pods are not currently on the market.
