The $25,000 Dessert


No, that wasn’t a typo. Yes, this “Frrrozen Haute Chocolate” actually costs $25k. It is served at Serendipity 3 restaurant on East 60th Street in NYC.

Gold, Diamonds, and other amazing ingredients. Sounds great, I’ll take two.

From NYT:

“Joe Calderone, a spokesman for the Midtown restaurant, said the dessert is a mix of cocoas and milk frozen to a slushylike consistency. But it does not stop there. Five grams of 24-carat gold are mixed in; then, the chocolate is topped with whipped cream and — what else? — more gold. No ordinary cherry tops this sundae; instead, it is garnished with La Madeline au Truffe.

The whole mass is served in a goblet surrounded with a crown made, of course, of gold. And diamonds. If that is not enough, the spoon is gold, too.”
