The best ideas are often shared by friends over a bottle wine after a long week at the office. By all accounts, that reportedly isn’t too far from how David Sanderson and Lee Brady coined the idea of creating edible lingerie in 1975.
The first piece of edible underwear was licorice-flavoured and made from an edible film that was technically used to wrap frozen turkeys.
While the idea of underwear being edible was so far-fetched in the 70s that even the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office are said to have initially denied the application to patent the idea, once the concept was given the go ahead, ‘Candypants’ quickly took the market by storm.
Within weeks of launching the world’s first edible undies, hundreds of thousands of pairs were being manufactured from Sanderson and Brady’s base in Illinois.
By 1976, around $150,000 worth of Candypants were being sold every month.
The product's popularity continued to soar and in 1989 People magazine listed edible underwear as one of the most defining aspects of pop culture.
“We approached it as conceptual art and as a sexual parody,” says Sanderson. “It ended up being this gargantuan behemoth,” adds Brady. “It kind of got out of control.”
Out of control or not, edible underwear has long been considered by many as a “naughty innocence”. While many iterations of edible underwear have hit the selves over the past few decades, the most common modern-day style tends to be made from strings of candy, woven together in various shapes to form novelty wear.
Whether you’re looking for some fun items to spice up a bachelorette or hens party, or a little something cheeky for a laugh in the bedroom, ATMS has a range of edible lingerie, perfect for every occasion.
