Does your office candy bowl need a little bling-bling? Maybe it’s time to invest in some $500 “Beyond Gourmet” jelly beans, which are coated in 24-carat gold and sold in crystal jars. Says a press release Mogulite got its hands on: “Influenced by food deconstruction masters such as Jose Andreas and Ferran Adria of El Bulli … ‘Beyond Gourmet’™ jelly beans will enable one to create haute cuisine and exotic dishes.” Does that mean we’ll be able to replicate that Guinea-fowl terrine from Daniel in jelly-bean form? And do we want to? [Mogulite]
