Alinea, a three star Michelin restaurant in Chicago, offers guests this unusual and innovative dessert.

Alinea, the only restaurant with three Michelin stars in Chicago, is offering its guests a very unusual treat: edible helium balloons. This culinary innovation tastes of green apple and has a string of dehydrated apple for you to hold while you eat it. The balloon can either be popped with your mouth so you can suck the helium out or popped with the provided needle so you can eat it without getting a squeaky voice. Watch as the edible balloon is created and tasted in the video below:
