today i learned – tues 3rd july 2018

do you happen to be a big fan of shiny things and chicken wings? πŸ” well, your lucky day is upon us πŸ™ŒπŸ»

#tdil you can buy 24-karat chicken wings in the states πŸ˜±πŸ’°

if you’re into the finer things in life, then these are deffo for you – they’re totally edible, totally gold, totally expensive and totally cooked fairly well 😏

they’re the creation of a youtube/snapchat dude named ‘foodgod’ (yes, that’s his actual legal name πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ) and they’re available from a restaurant in america called the ‘ainsworth’ πŸ—

the chicken wings are basically just standard chicken wings that has been brined for 12 hours, coated in dry rub, baked and flash-fryed …

the difference being, of course, that they are then smothered in gold marinade (with extra honey and bbq sauce) and then finished with a sprinkling of gold dust πŸ’Έbefore receiving the golden treatment, they’re probably worth $10/15 (i don’t really know the going rate for chicken wings in the states πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ)

after becoming blinged, however, they’re worth Β£34 for ten or Β£1000 for 50 and a bottle of armand de brignac champagne 🍾

now, the thing that everyone has been raving about is the fact that these are Β£1000 chicken wings … but who really orders 50 chicken wings?! if you’re after novelty, just have the 10 for a standard price πŸ™ˆ that said, the bottle of armand would go down nicely πŸ™ŒπŸ» always wanted one of their gold bottles 😍 anyway! we digress!

that’s us done for today again πŸ‘πŸ» if you do happen to go try some bling chicken wings, please do let me know how they were 😏

peace 🐘 #tdil
