Gold, diamonds, gems and silver – jewelry or food? Most of you would think jewels – but you’d be wrong. Next time your sweetheart gives you a box of chocolate, check to see what you’re biting into.
A Swiss chocolate company, Cocoa Gourmet has created what they term their ‘Royal Collection’ which features 12 chocolates made with edible gold, silver and sprinkled with diamonds. Priced at $1,250, the collection has four 22 carat gold chocolates, four pure silver chocolates and four sweet diamond pieces. Don’t worry, you won’t get killed from eating the metal: it’s totally safe when ingested.
If $1,250 sounds crazy for a few chocolates, there’s always the ‘cheaper’ box of gemstone choccies. These are studded with gemstones and go for $520 a box.
