Edible helium balloons make for a truly classy dessert

(CBS) - I'm sure most of you are dubious about the headline and thinking this video will be some tongue-in-cheek silliness.  Spoiler: It's not. Check out what I predict is soon-to-be the latest craze in fine dining desserts.

The edible helium balloons are done by Alinea Restaurant in Chicago, Illinois, and even the strings are made from dehydrated apple.

I don't know about you, but I've got a major sweet tooth and have been looking for something "light" (ba-dum-bump)... but, seriously, I'm dying to try one of these after watching! 

How about you? Leave me some comment love below with your thoughts.  And to learn more about Alinea Restaurant, you can check out their website by clicking here.
