Bakers, what's your opinion of using embellishments like dragees, disco dust, edible glitter, or sparkly sanding sugar?

I'm working on a cookie recipe and I want to "bling" them up.

I know that some people are wary of the silver/gold metallic dragees because of the metal content. I know that they make dragees or little sugar beads in other colors.

Will people be able to feel the edible glitter in their mouths? I've only used regular glitter in arts and crafts project and I can't imagine what it would feel like eating edible glitter even if it melted like sugar when you eat it.

Any opinions?

I don't like the dragees (talk about broken tooth!) but the others are fine (edible glitter is not like eating arts/crafts glitter!). Colored sugars are also easy to make .

I am also not a fan of dragees...they are pretty, but entirely too hard to eat.

I have used glitter in the past but went back to sugar icing.
