View Full Version : Mourning the loss of dragees
04-14-2009, 11:28 AM
We've been looking for dragees in supermarkets in a few nearby towns for some cupcakes. I just used teh interweb to see if they could be ordered online (they can) and found they're no longer considered edible (I remember eating them and not getting sick, so they seemed edible to me as a kid - and more socially acceptable than paste, too!).
What's going on? How many cases occurred where dragees were more harmful than the cookies and cakes they adorned?

What are dragees?

The ones with the metallic finish.

Oh, those. Why aren't they edible, all of a sudden, and gold leaf is still OK?
"Although the metallic-finish dragées can be purchased in 49 U.S. states, they are no longer sold in California due to a 2003 lawsuit against several sellers"
Where else but California?

i used to load my BB gun with them and watch them turn to powder as they made contact with what ever target was in my sites.

Now I need a bb gun, too. It never ends.

If you lived in California, you'd have to make sure the bb gun is on the government approved list, buy it, register it then wait 10 days before you could hold it.

I can order them for my state, but the FDA warning and legal status in the lawsuit state do cast a glimmer of despair.

I still remember we had those on those little cream cakes; they were nice.
Man, this is > 35 yrs ago! (getting old).
