Stumped about a holiday food gift or cheese plate ... consider Stilton flecked with gold

Another poster brought this up in a post about Christmas cookies, but it seemed to demand it's own topic. .

"Try adding this to your after-dinner cheeseboard this Christmas - a Stilton made of real gold which costs £60 a slice.

Long Clawson Dairy in Leicestershire will make a limited edition run of it this Christmas and has already been contacted by a variety of interested parties including a Gulf-based oil sheikh and a famous pop star.:

It does look pretty, but I think that much gold would be bad for you.

If you are up for a holiday splurge, here's where to order it. Be sure and report about how it tasted

"Long Clawson Stilton Gold, is made from premium white Stilton,and is shot-through with a combination of real edible gold leaf,and real gold-Cinnamon Schapps"
