The Edible Mist Machine produces fumes in various different flavours - from apple pie to lobster, all for absolutely zero calories.

Diners suck up the microscopic mist through a straw to experience the flavour, without having to worry about any of the calories associated with the full meal.

The company Lick Me I'm Delicious brought out the product which they are tipping as the latest food craze.

'It messes with your mind because your brain expects something to be in your mouth,' says the company's founder Charlie.

'It's a pretty fun machine, the range of flavours is massive and we can also produce you a personalised mist from pretty much anything in the world…And it's zero calories,' he added.

Lick Me I'm Delicious are also currently in the process of developing a levitating cocktail machine - something which sounds a little more promising to us!
