$1,000 Ice Cream Treats

The Opulence Sundae is Staggeringly Expensive & Sweet

— May 17, 2012 — Lifestyle
The Opulence Sundae ice cream snack is sure to tantalize your taste buds. At the steep price of $ 1,000 the Guinness Book of World Records’ most expensive dessert is one sweet splurge you’ll force yourself to remember.

This sundae is available exclusively at Serendipity Restaurant in NYC, often frequented by Marilyn Monroe and featured in John Cusack’s movie Serendipity. This heavenly creation is made from the finest Tahitian vanilla ice cream as well as Madgascar Vanilla to contrast the different flavors. This dessert is then wrapped in a 23-carat edible gold leaf, drizzled with the world’s most expensive chocolate, Venezualan Amedei Procelana and sprinkled with gold coated almonds and fruit. The almonds and fruit that the ice cream is topped with are soaked for months and cost approximately $100 per pound. Lastly, the wallet-lightening dish comes embellished with a gilded flower and truffles that take eight hours to create.

This expensive dish is served in a dish that is equally as expensive; the Opulence Sundae is presented in a $300 Baccarat Harcourt Crystal Goblet, which the gluttonous consumer gets to keep. On average, 50 people per year indulge their sweet tooth and opt for this sundae. If you’re craving this big-ticketed treat be sure to place your order two days in advance -- this allows time for the rare and exotic ingredients to be flown in from around the world.
