Here’s How You Can Win a $100,000 24-Karat Solid Gold Stick of Butter

It was created by New York-based jewelry designer Greg Yüna.



Ritz is dropping a brand-new, limited-release butter-flavored cracker on April 29. And to celebrate the launch, the company is going way, way over the top with a 24-karat solid gold bar in the shape of a stick of butter.

Let me go ahead and repeat that: They’re commemorating the release of a butter-flavored cracker with a 24-karat solid gold bar in the shape of a stick of butter.

According to Ritz, the new crackers capture the butter flavor you find in traditional Ritz crackers and kick it up a notch with “an extra boost of decadence in every bite,” which the brand likens to “adding a touch of extravagance to life’s everyday moments,” such as “a hint of bling or a dose of swagger.” Quite the feat for a product that didn't list any additional butter in its ingredients list.

I've apparently been eating crackers wrong my entire life, but nevertheless, back to that bling: The company joined forces with New York City-based luxury jewelry designer Greg Yüna to design the… stick?

“I immediately knew that this project was something that my team and I could execute and have fun with — because one thing we definitely know how to do, is to be extra,” Yüna said in Ritz’s butter-filled press release. And let’s face it, it doesn’t get more extra than a stick of gold butter. ”We were so pleased to turn this everyday essential into something luxurious and special,” he says.

Special indeed. Ritz is also giving fans who “Live Buttery-er” the opportunity to win the $100,000 piece of art — because who doesn't need a piece of butter art worth more than a new Tesla?

To win, butter enthusiasts are being encouraged to “showcase their Buttery-er selves” by creating a TikTok video using the Live Buttery-er TikTok effect created by Ritz. The effect will be available on TikTok starting at midnight ET on May 1st, with the contest running through May 20th at midnight.

To enter, fans are asked to share their video on TikTok, tag @theritzcrackersofficial in the caption, and include the hashtags #liverbutteryer and #RITZcontest.

And if you want to get your hands on those buttery crackers, you can snag a box at retailers nationwide starting next Monday for a suggested retail price of $4.29 — or .429% of a gold stick of butter.
