[via SlashFood] Cheap wooden chopsticks not quite as stylish as you'd like? Why not bling them up a little by drizzling some gold flakes on them! For the take-away connoisseur that has everything, snapping these in half over your meal will sprinkle gold flakes on the takeaway of your choice. And who says take away on a first date can't be classy?
Everyone knows that chopsticks are the most important tools in Japan, so it’s no wonder that there are thousands of variations. Now a specialty store has had an extraordinary idea straight from the days when salarymen were sprinking gold on just about everything: The Kinbashi Gold Chopsticks.
They aren’t as expensive as you may think, but are still ¥4,515 ($40) for two five-packs. So everybody can feel special while eating with these chopsticks. Top it off with a gold business card, and you’re ready for dinner with the emperor.
There is just on question left: What about the nutrient content?
