(Gross) Mogul Toy Of The Day: Gold-Flecked Blue Cheese
6:15 pm, November 17th | by Hillary Reinsberg
A gold iPad — we can deal with it. Even a gold tie is sort of comically acceptable. And despite their absurdity, even gold shoelaces were fine. But gold cheese? This has officially gotten out of control.
The cheese in question is Clawson Stilton Gold — and it’ll run you $95 for a little 3.5 ounce slice. Not only is the probably lovely British blue cheese infused with copious amounts of “edible gold leaf,” it’s also tainted with “generous helpings of gold-cinnamon schnapps.” Gross.
Having written about these absurd “luxury products” for a few months now, we’ve started to wonder — does anyone actually buy this crap? (Probably not, it’s probably just a publicity stunt that we’re contributing to, but let’s just pretend).
If you must indulge in excessively priced foods, allow us to recommend caviar or overpriced champagne. At least they taste good.
