The ridiculously expensive stilton is made with flakes of real gold and sells for around $130 per wedge.
The cheese will be produced by the Long Clawson Dairy in Leicestershire for a limited run this Christmas, with both the rich and famous already showing an interest in obtaining some of what has become known as Britain's blingiest cheese. "We wanted to create something special, a unique Stilton cheese, for the Christmas market - just a limited run to hopefully get more people interested in Stilton," said a spokeswoman.
Made from premium white Stilton shot through with a combination of real edible gold leaf and real gold liqueur, its creators say it is Britain's 'blingiest' cheese, 67 times more pricey than regular Stilton, which comes in at around 90p for 100g.

wow, this makes me pretty angry. what is the point? gold flake cheese? seriously? I can't believe people pay money for such a stupid thing, let alone think up such a stupid idea. I guess they just love to rub it in the faces of the have-nots. They just love sitting in they're nice fancy mansions eating gold cheese while millions starve.

Well a life of excess leads to no good anyway. Hope they leave some money to at least one charity when they die fast and young. It's their money as I said and they can do what they like, but I hope if I was ever in their position, I would spend my money more wisely than frivolity such as this.

I haven't donated anything today, and likely won't either. Lol, I'm not a daily charity person. But over the last few months I have donated books to the local library charity drive, clothes and home goods to a local charity resale shop. I tend to shop resale a lot, and go to the ones that support local needs, sometimes Goodwill. I've done a couple of the donate a bag for local food banks in the past few weeks. I always toss my change in the donation bucket to support animals when I'm at the feed or pet stores. And lol, I also collect paw points from my kitty litter, and turn them in for the AS... [More]
