German-based company The Deli Garage has introduced a new addition to its lineup of edible products. Perfect for when you're expecting a Bond villain for dinner or just want to give that roast chicken a truly golden finish, the company is now selling Food Finish coloring spray that lets you coat your meal in a varnish of gold, silver, red or blue.
To create the culinary coloring spray, The Deli Garage teamed up with a small food factory, which supplies high-quality pastry shops with food coloring. Composed of ethyl alcohol, flavors and several food additives, the food varnish sprays are harmless and tasteless to eat and are sold in 100 ml cans. Just like real paint, the company says the best results will be seen with the application of several thin layers.
The company - which also produces such appetizing offerings as pasta in the shape of nuts, bolts and screws and chocolate glue - has already received some interesting requests for its edible food spray, including a Sheikh who placed a large order and asked whether it's safe to apply Food Finish on the human skin for a gold banquet. Personally I'd prefer a chocolate banquet but that's just me.
Food Finish edible sprays retail at EUR24.80 (approx. US$35) and it costs an additional EUR14 (approx. US$20) for international shipping, although only to other European countries. There's no shipping to the U.S. available at this point due to shipping regulations surrounding aerosols.
