As we prep to overindulge this Thanksgiving holiday, there are certain signs of excess we cant deny an extra helping of buttery mashed potatoes, a slice of pumpkin pie with whipped cream, and perhaps late-night second helpings are all inevitable. But a slice of $93 gold cheese isnt something youd typically see on an American Thanksgiving spread.
Americans love to double their calorie intake on Thanksgiving, but doubling their price for cheese is a bit much. Of course, the steep price of Long Clawsons White Stilton Gold might have something to do with the real gold flakes in it.
The naturally aged British cheese has been made of real gold and is being heralded as an ideal platter for this years Christmas menu. Created from premium white Stilton, edible gold leaf and gold Cinnamon Schapps, the limited edition gold lead Stilton is appealing both to the eye and taste buds.
The longevity of Long Clawson Dairys cheese making career has little to do with the type of cheese they have created, but lets just say that they know what theyre doing. Unfortunately for the British team, the Long Clawson White Stilton Gold isnt the only expensive cheese creation from around the world.
Serbian cheese makers have claimed their production from donkeys milk, Pule cheese, is the most expensive in the world costing $1,350 per kilogram. The price isnt the only thing interested parties have to cut through the Balkan donkeys cheese isnt readily available, and must be specially ordered despite the attraction it gained to Serbian farmers.
Perhaps I should have stated that I consider this stone cold stupid in much the same way that vapid, surgically altered bodies and faces stare at the camera for the front pages of supermarket tabloids in order to be recognized and admired. Eating gold has nothing to do with valuable additions to diet, health or high performance transportation. It will never trickle down to the masses as a valuable addition to life and pleasure. It does, however, waste resources by flushing them down the sewer in a grotesque and ostentatious way that does nothing - nothing - for anyone but the senseless idiot that consumes such trash.
Surely, that says something about the age we live in. If you don't see it, well, bon appetit!
What? Pay cash money for JELLY? You nuts.
I have enough homemade pepper jelly to last me until 2013 when they swear in President Sarah, LOL!
At this point in the commodities market I would suggest pre- or post-filtering for those flakes, LOL!
(They’re probably using gold painted lead in the Goldschlager these days, LOL!)
Give me a good swiss on ham and I am happy.
