Phones that are good enough to eat

Chinese moon cakes come in the form of Nokia handsets.


In addition to the stereotypical diet of Red Bull and Cheetos, geeks have become known increasingly for having a collective sweet tooth: Specifically, this has often taken the form of gadget cakes. And now it's become clear that the phenomenon is an international one.

GeekSugar has come across some edible mobile phones from China, which are actually moon cakes--a traditional treat served for the fall Moon Festival.

It's interesting to note that these phone cakes are of a variety from Finland-based Nokia, one of the few handset makers not based in Asia. (This, by the way, is the most fitting item we've ever seen for a site called GeekSugar.)
