Gold For Smoking and Munching
Gold Smokes and Edibles Trend higher.
Gold served as edible/smokable consumables becomes fashionable.
Update: Mcdonald’s Japan promotion: an 18K Chicken McNugget
Update: Pizza Hut to give away $100 gold covered 50th anniversary Super Bowl pizza
Update: Popcorn drenched in 23K gold – $5 per kernel!
Update: Gold for SHAVING?
Gold opponents like to trash gold by saying ‘you can’t eat it’. That’t not true as this blog post illustrates.
Gold proponents like to point to its unique properties and many uses. Gold’s versatility as an ingredient for bread or for use in astronaut equipment, however, have not helped it avoid a four year price decline, leading to the conclusion that gold must be in the toliet.
While gold’s price may be declining even as investment demand around the world grows, consumer demand for gold also appears to be on the upswing.
Gold Up in Smoke?
We recently learned of a marijuanna store in Seattle, Uncle Ike’s Pot Shop, selling joints wrapped in 24 karat gold! The thin layer of gold falls off with the ashes as the joint is smoked. We wonder if smoking too many of these joints will give one gold fingers.
Got the Munchies?
Vogue Magazine reported last month that gold leaf consumables were becoming, en vouge among top gourmet chefs looking to add some pizzaz and price appreciation to their creations. Vogue reports that a Serendipity 3’s Frozen Haute Chocolate sundae by Stephen Bruce covered in 23-karat edible gold–infused whipped cream cost a staggering $25,000.
For the more plebian, Nestle will be offering its famous KitKat chocolate bar covered in gold leaf for a modest ¥2,016 ($16). The limited edition gold KitKats (just 500 will be made) will be available only in Japan.
New Yorkers can participate in the modern day rush to eat gold by investing $100 in a gold iced donut, made with Cristal champagne.
