I was looking for keycaps and I found this at Amazon...

What does that even mean? :lol:


UPDATE: I received the keycaps and they are pretty poorly made. After less than a week of use, the "K" key broke from the stem.

I'm told cherries are pretty tasty if you get the right ones

"Food grade" = safe, i.e. does not leech chemicals into its surroundings. "Food grade" plastics is important when you have drinking cups, cake moulds, etc.
But this is yet another example of when the info sheet for a cheap item contains unnecessary bullet points. This is similar to when a mechanical keyboard being listed as having a "airplane-grade aluminium mounting plate"...

I think that's why all these people on Reddit keep saying that they want to eat their keycaps...

Thanks for the info.
Apparently, they may be good to eat, but not to type. One of the caps broke after less than a week of use.
And I don't even type that much.

I would not recommend eating these, I think they are expired.
