Just for fun: 23k gold and chocolate covered bacon has arrived

The culinary pioneers at Baconery have brought together three of America's favourite things to make one tasty snack: chocolate, bacon, and gold.

"23k Gold Chocolate Bacon," made with real, edible bullion flakes can now be purchased from the shop in New York City or online.

Creator Wesley Klein discusses the marriage of bacon with sweets:

“Like a mad scientist, I spent months in the kitchen with breakfast chefs, pastry chefs, and more, until we stumbled upon the exact formula for infusing these two ingredients into the perfect culinary combination.”

A small pack of the treats goes for $40.
