  1. I'm not certain, but in my experience these items are not intended for consumption. You're better off enjoying it as a decorative item, or regifting it if you think it's ugly...

    1. Yeah, I'd be concerned about any dried bean thats been soaking in oil...

      1. according to the site....
        Everything we do is beautiful and for use or consumption. Shonfeld's has the highest standards in the industry.

        We know that most of your customers will not open our bottles or our unique gift set items- they will think they are too beautiful for any other purpose than decoration.

        Yet, we promise- if they decide to open it and use it, they will be thrilled. The gourmet gifts are just delicious...

        1. I've been looking for that very bottle for my wife to replace the one she had that was broken by the kids. Do you know where I can get one? Is your available?

            Have you checked eBay? I see almost a dozen different Eiffel Tower bottles on there right now of different sizes, etc...
