The First Float-down Eatery: Jafflechutes Coming to New York City

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Perhaps an Amazon drone? No, it’s a Jafflechutes coming your way. If you’re from Melbourne, you may have already heard about this clever pop-up project by David McDonald and Adam Grant. However, if you’re in New York City, then you’re in luck, because Jafflechutes is soon landing near you.

A Jafflechute is half jaffle, a toast sandwich; half parachute (delivered from the sky!). The sandwich comes in three varieties. Cheese and tomato is the basic option, cheese, ham, and pineapple for those feeling a little more adventurous, and cheese, roast beef, dill pickles, mushroom, and mustard if you are really hungry. Jaffles also don’t discriminate against those that are vegan and gluten-free.

To get it, you must place an order on Paypal. The menu keeps it simple. All sandwiches are between $5-$7. Then you will be sent a time and place to catch your Jaffle. Your Jaffle will be made in a toasty Jaffle machine, and then will be waiting for you from above. Once you step on the X marked on the ground, the Jaffle will then gently float down with its handmade parachute into your hands… or 10 feet from you… depending on wind conditions.

If you are suddenly craving sky dropped food, make sure to follow Jafflechute’s FB and Twitter, to keep track of upcoming drop dates.
