I know. It sounds crazy: $1,000 for an ice cream sundae?
But, the sundae is The Grand Opulence Sundae from famed Serendipity of New York City and it's made up of the best of the best.
According to the restaurant, they sell approximately one a month, so apparently, quite a few people have some money to indulge in such opulence.
The Golden Opulence Sundae, the "World's most expensive sundae", was created to celebrate Serendipity's 50th Anniversay last year.
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."

You didn't have to go through all the trouble to post the pic of your sig other.
Does that include the whipped cream?
Women who marry for money pay for it for a long, long time.
That will make a lady burp all night long!
And so do the men who marry them!
That would be an easy way for a person to convert his life savings to rubies and have some fun while doing it, lol.
((brought back bad memories...hahaha)
I know a redhead that would eat one of those. She scares me with her stupid ideas. Redheads are like wayward teenage boys. Never a dull moment if you can sleep with one eye open:) This one has a master's degree in being a redhead.
"Nigerian General Kachinga Cheatchusuckah"
I believe you.
I'll take the money, and use it for 250 DQ banana splits, spread out over about a 5 year period.
Yes, especially when it isn't. Judging by the cherries, those hove to be the most pitifully SMALL "5 scoops of the richest Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream..." on the face of the planet.
For another $49.95 will they "Super Size" it?
,,, do ya get wafers with it?
Apples and oranges.
Momen marry for money.
Men marry women who marry for money for sex.
