Real Gold Stilton Selling at £60 a Slice
If you are looking for the ultimate holiday gift of cheese, this may be it. Long Clawson has made a Stilton with real gold, and it's going for £60 a slice. Spending that kind of cash involves serious holiday spirit. The Belfast Telegraph has the story:
A whopping £6 price tag for a single cracker-sized wedge may seem a bit decadent to some but celebrities are already queuing up to get their hands on some of the swanky Stilton.
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.
Made from premium white Stilton shot-through with a combination of real edible gold leaf and real gold liqueur, its creators say it is Britain's "blingiest" cheese, 67 times more pricey than regular Stilton, which comes in at around 90p for 100g.
