Balloons have become much more than just decoration‚Ä¶
Creative culinary chefs in Chicago have come up with a revolutionary and fun dessert ‚Äď edible helium balloons.¬† They can be found exclusively at the world renowned restaurant Alinea, known for combining food, science and art.¬†
The green apple flavoured ‚Äėballoons‚Äô are delivered to the table weighted down with a beautifully designed silver pin and diners can either suck out the helium (whatever age you are, this always elicits a chuckle or two!) and then eat the actual balloon and its string, or they can pop the balloon before eating.¬†
We‚Äôre sure that some aspiring Heston Blumenthal will be producing these in the UK soon so keep a lookout.¬† But if this gastronomic explosion is taking things a little too far for your guests then try serving dessert with a helium balloon attached, you can even get the balloons printed with your event logo.
