Too far??

The world of bacon just got a bit weirder.

Someone has decided what's been missing from that fried pork goodness is gold. Yes, gold.

The New York food store Baconry ("bacon meets bakery") has a new item called Chocolate Gold Bacon. It has cherrywood bacon, semi-sweet dark chocolate and 23 karat edible gold flakes. It costs 40 bucks for a pack of it – which is a lot for bacon, but not for gold.
