Amy Sedaris's Golden First Date at Chipotle

We were baffled when Chipotle started wrapping its burritos and tacos in gold foil in the name of a new promotion (because the ingredients are solid gold, get it?).

Maybe we're missing something here, but don't businesses try to shave superfluous costs?
