You Can Eat These Balloons & They’re Transparent


As a kid, I’ve always loved getting balloons.

Even tho the excitement always dies down within a day, I always feel like I have the world intertwined in my fingers as I held on to my new friend.

Yes, balloons are that therapeutic.

But “what’s the use of a balloon”, some may ask.

Well, I’m glad they did, ‘cos guess what? You can now eat your balloons.

A little background: edible balloons were first introduced in Alinea restaurant in Chicago.

This restaurant has been awarded three stars from the Michelin Guide. It also holds onto a spot in ‘The World’s 50 Best Restaurants‘.

The balloon itself is made from sugar, and the string from green apples. They are then filled with helium gas to get their shape.

Pretty simple huh?

There’s also some in SG

Other than Janice Wong’s 2am:dessertbar, Central Perk Singapore is also offering this edible balloon.


So if you want to try it out, you can save on the flight tickets!

Divided reactions

Even though the video was meant to be informative, there’s still a large number of comments that are…let’s say…more realistic.

This kind of went too deep for me:

I’m sure you’ve all tried inhaling helium balloons before.

So…what’s your take on this?
