Dragee or no?

Are metallic dragees bad for you? They're very cute and classy, and I'd love to use them for icing accents, but the warnings that they're not meant for consumption deter me. Yet Wikipedia seems to suggest that they're edible. And Wikipedia knows all.

From today's yumsugar: Pepsi Raw looks intriguing, doesn't it?

I'm going to make my Sweetheart Kiss cupcakes tomorrow night! Who's excited? I am. ;)

omg, i've been looking for these for sooo long. i saw a bottle of them in japan, but, stupid me, i didn't get them. they were on sale, too! but maybe it's a good thing i didn't buy them... i was running out of space in my suitcase...

anyway, they are edible (i've eaten them myself, albeit this was when i was 8 or 9 years old, i think), but i think the warning is just that too much of the metallic coating isn't necessarily good for you. but they're sugar on the inside, and as long as you don't down too much of the dragees at a time, you should be fine.... ^__^
