Given the price of gold these days I'm not sure if you are supposed to eat this or tuck it in the bank. Actually you can do both with this one. Selfridges is offering a chocolate egg created by Melt's head chocolatier Chika Watanabe with one troy ounce of gold bullion set into it. Selfridges tells the Telegraph that the coin used on the egg is a particularly rare one that the Royal Mint no longer produces and is worth £900. Each egg is made to order with a choice of single origin chocolates. It is decorated with 18 carat gold leaf and filled with salted caramels. It sells for £1,000.
