Would You Like Some Gold Dusted Chocolate?

For this year's Golden Globe awards executive pastry chef Thomas Henzi will serve a dish that will be sprinkled with 23-carat edible gold flakes and a white chocolate ball sprayed with gold dust.

In September, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that about one out of every six Americans, or 14.5 percent of the population had trouble coming up had trouble coming up with enough money to buy food at some point in 2010.

Is this dish a tasteless extravaganza?

I really don't see how putting gold dust on chocolate would make it taste any better it only makes it more expensive

a person should be as enthusiastic and dangerous as Legolas

You can't taste gold, but sure if it's chocolate I will eat it.

'23-carat edible gold flakes'...


When did a precious metal become food?

What?....Who?...Me?... .....What'd I do?..... Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of crap by the clean end.

Actually, gold is said to be very healthy. But I'd rather just have the chocolate.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

Gold is healthy?! So what are people gonna go out and buy chunks of gold and start gnawing on it??

a person should be as enthusiastic and dangerous as Legolas

Actually, injections of gold are very commonly used to relieve severe rheumatoid arthritis. So is bee venom. Gold and silver ingested to cleanse the toxins from the system. I expect every plant and mineral on earth has some effect on health and well being. We just haven't discovered all of it yet. But one must remember that our bodies are made out of exactly the same things the earth is made of, so of course there's a resonance. But as far as putting gold on chocolate, just a waste of gold on people that have too much money for their own good.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

So what was the chocolate all about?  To symbolize their ever high social status.  So sad.

wow, that's unbelievable and ridiculous. but I would so eat it.

Low calorie chocolates?

Mars Bars are low in calorie and they got all the different layers and they're so chunky and filling they really hit the spot. They weigh in at around 250Kcal though I've also had bars of Terry's Choc Orange (214Kcal) and Picnic (240ish), which have been okay. http://www.chocochocolates.com
