Famed restaurant Serendipity of New York City created The Grand Opulence Sundae, a $1,000 ice cream sundae to celebrate its 50th Anniversary last year. Called the “World’s most expensive sundae”, nothing was spared in the making of this delectable desert. It’s “Made with 5 scoops of the richest Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla and covered in 23K edible gold leaf, the sundae is drizzled with the world’s most expensive chocolate, Amedei Porceleana, and covered with chunks of rare Chuao chocolate, which is from cocoa beans harvested by the Caribbean Sea on Venezuela’s coast. The masterpiece is suffused with exotic candied fruits from Paris, gold dragets, truffles and Marzipan Cherries. It is topped with a tiny glass bowl of Grand Passion Caviar, an exclusive dessert caviar, made of salt-free American Golden caviar, known for its sparkling golden color. It’s sweetened and infused with fresh passion fruit, orange and Armagnac. The sundae is served in a baccarat Harcourt crystal goblet with an 18K gold spoon to partake in the indulgence served with a petite mother of pearl spoon and topped with a gilded sugar flower by Ron Ben-Israel”. What a mouthful. This thing is so intense, if you plan on ordering one, you have to let them know 48 hours in advance so they have time to gather all of the ingredients. Apparently some people have the change necessary to purchase one of this treats of the tongue, as the restaurant reports they sell an average of one per month. That must be one happy ice cream loving millionaire by then end of that desert.
