Proceeds go to charity, naturally.

May or may not ward off vampires

Andrew Zimmern is a man of many talents: He just celebrated the 200th episode of his insanely popular Travel Channel show Bizarre Foods, he's written numerous books, and he is a selfie master. Now, he can add brand ambassador for "artisanal food jewelry" to the list.

Zimmern is now Chief Culinary Officer for a company called Delicacies that sells food-themed charm bracelets, sales of which benefit hunger-relief charities. You can adorn your wrist with a fine Italian leather strap and options like a gold carrot, or even a silver lobster. Zimmern himself is partial to the octopus. Unfortunately (or fortunately?), there are no bull testicles.

The bracelets, which cost $75 to $85, will no doubt coordinate perfectly with Zimmern's 26-pocket khaki travel vest, which he launched last year in conjunction with the company SCOTTeVEST. Of course, he's hardly the first chef to moonlight as a fashion designer: San Francisco chef Chris Cosentino designed a line of butcher-inspired underwear and mortadella-print socks last year.
