Amazon says it has completed its first-ever drone delivery.

CEO Jeff Bezos made the announcement via Twitter on Wednesday morning, saying the delivery took just 13 minutes from "click to delivery."

According to CNBC, the company's first drone delivery was made in Cambridge, United Kingdom. The package reportedly included an Amazon Fire Stick, used for streaming TV shows and movies, and a bag of popcorn.

The new service is currently being tested with just two customers in the United Kingdom, where laws allow commercial deliveries by drone. The U.S. currently does not allow drones to deliver goods. The Federal Aviation Administration has said it is still reviewing the possibility.

Amazon said that PrimeAir, the company's drone delivery service, "has great potential to enhance the services we already provide to millions of customers by providing rapid parcel delivery that will also increase the overall safety and efficiency of the transportation system."
