Oh God No! "Color your food with food finish"


Want to impress your guests at a dinner party? Food Finish is great for that. Developed together with The Deli Garage and a small food factory, which supplies high-quality fine pastry shops with food coloring. Easy to use with the spray can and the result is beautiful. Why not create a chrome trout or gold-plated asparagus tips. It is completely harmless and tasteless to eat, Food Finish brings new luster in the creative cuisine.





Unfortunately not available in the US (yet) cause of shipping regulations More information at www.the-deli-garage.com

Can't imagine what eating THAT is going to do to you, long term....

1. Pretty? Sure, I guess...
Edible? I would be very afraid.

2. Scary, given that there are already 70,000 toxins we are exposed to, and everyone tested...
is found to have 150+ toxins in their body.

3. Don't let Food Network see this
Because as soon as they do, it's all over.

4. I like food-colored food, myself. I am still wary of those little silver balls
(dragees?) they put on cakes and cookies, BTW. I've heard they are edible, but I'd have to dig them out of the frosting because they look like BB's.

14. A lawyer in Napa sued a manufacturer claiming the silver ones were toxic
The legislature did their typical knee-jerk response by banning all foods containing metallic silver, no matter how small the amount.

16. They are used to cut through stuff like the breastbone. Why they are in the shot
or on the platter at all I have no idea.

Must be a European thing.

The cinnamon sticks don't make much sense either, unless this is supposed to be cinnamon flavored chicken.

18. poultry shears. and that's a duck.
i bet this makes it to the insane cake crowd really, really fast. maybe someone in the u.s. will rip off the formula.
one of those food network bakeries is around here and i have bought a couple of those cakes for kid's birthdays. (yes, my kids are spoiled) they are wicked expensive and they are all but INEDIBLE. i can imagine them sprayed with this shit. :puke:

19. Well, at least you have bakeries. Where I live now, the bakery is either
WalMart or Safeway, unless I want to drive more than 15 miles. But yeah, I can only see this as applicable (and even remotely appetizing) on baked goods.

36. I've always found that "bakery" taste a little off-putting.
Like stuff from the Swedish Bakery. There's something industrial about it. I don't know how to characterize it except by example.

22. Sorry, but I've been using metalic dusting powders in cake decorating for years. Of course, I don't
usually cover the entire thing with them, just a few tiny decorations!

23. The two worst things would be...
potassium aluminum silicate and titanium dioxide. Propane and/or butane is used as the propellant.

(the ingredients are listed on their website, but you have to dig out what the numbers mean)

But, these are not the worst things you've put in your mouth.

(Still kind of a dumb idea, though)

34. I have some gold spray from a cake store...
for my son's Golden Birthday. It looked like spray paint and I used it on a small part of the cake.

I thought I might use the rest over the holidays on some cookies or something.

41. Yeah such charming topics like
"Do you think you can drive me to the emergency room if I eat this and it poisons me?" or maybe "When you invited me to dinner, I thought you liked me." LOL
