No matter how many times we say this, working on the rich Times never fails to surprise us at least a few times each week. One of the surprises of this week would easily be this 24 carat gold flaked cheese – proving that mankind shall never ever get tired of its love with this precious yellow metal. The gold flaked cheese is the Clawson Stilton Gold that is made from premium Stilton (the cheese) blended with edible gold leaf and real gold-liqueur.
Its not the first time that gold is being used in eatables. We have had gold chocolate puddings and gold chocolate cakes , not to mention the worlds most luxurious chocolate which also made use of delicious dollops of gold. However these delicacies have not meant that interest in the gold cheese is damp. In fact, the manufacturer – Long Clawson Dairy (in Leicestershire) claims that there have already been several interested people contacting them including a Sheikh from the Gulf and a famous pop star for whom this Euro 711 a kilo price is a bargain (about a $1000 for 2.2 lbs).
Long Clawson Dairy claims that based on the level of hype that this cheese has generated, they should be sold out of Clawson Stilton Gold come Christmas. Needless to say , this is easily the most expensive cheese in the world at this time.
