Gold Soft Serve Combines Two Precious Things In One Delicious Package

If you were upset to read that enough edible gold to build an amusement park swirled through the sewers of Los Angeles after The Oscars (and that none of it came from your own personal digestive tract) have we got some exciting news for you! Now you, yes, you, a normal person who is not a celebrity, can eat as much gold-covered soft-serve as you like for a very reasonable price: $8 and a round-trip ticket to Japan (or a one-way. There’s gold-covered ice cream, you might decide to stay).

Business Insider reports that the very special ice cream comes from Kanazawa, which is the gold leaf capital of Japan. And with so much gold leaf just laying around (honestly, it sounds like a really magical place) (one in which we’d like to imagine people regularly just cover themselves in gold for fun) ice cream vendors thought it’d be fun to spice up a boring old vanilla cone with a protective layer of precious metal.

Look, how beautiful:

And here it is being made:

This looks mildly dangerous to consume, right?

But look how handsome it makes one look, and how wise it makes one feel:


And the best part? You, too, can tag your Insta posts #luxury while spending less than you would for a burrito with guac at Chipotle (physically and spiritually).

Need to get your own? Try out some of these travel hacks to get to Kanazawa before all the gold is gone.
