In July, I found some ingestible gold pills. Now, a company called DeLafee is offering Swiss chocolate pralines which are laced with 24 carat edible gold leafs. The gold pills ran for $275, but edible chocolate only costs $98.40 for a box of eight. I'd say that's a bargain of a price for the opportunity to ingest your wealth.
