The rosy red hue of an apple, the rustic brown of braised short ribs, the unrefined greens of leaf lettuce -- BOOOOORRRRR-ING!
Now you can change the color of everything you eat (as long as it's to gold, silver, red, or blue) thanks to Esslack, a tasteless, non-toxic, edible spray paint from Germany.
Developed with a small food factory that supplies food coloring to high-end pastry shops, Esslack offers ideas like chrome trout, gold-plated asparagus tips, and red peas. But at around $35 a can (plus shipping), you'll need to decide which foods are worthy of edible spray paint bling.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
