Got $1,000? Why Not Try a Golden Opulence Sundae? (drizzled with Amedei Porceleana chocolate)

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."

That would be an easy way for a person to convert his life savings to rubies and have some fun while doing it, lol.

"This is sick."

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.

It may sound crazy, but take it from me: it's absolutely indescribable.

I believe you.

indescribably stupid.

indescribably insane.

indescribably decadent.

indescribably inexplicable.

indescribably indescribable.

I'll take the money, and use it for 250 DQ banana splits, spread out over about a 5 year period.

but on the other hand something like this ought to look large.

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?

No sex is worth $1000. Not even with you, Xena. Although, I've got a couple hundred, if you're interested.

Yikes! I paid nearly that much for a high-end digital camera. Who in their right mind would pay a grand for a sumptuous sundae?

Ebay has changed everything. Only a fool would pay full retail price for a boutique brand.

Gold leaf -- Ugh! I'd just as soon eat aluminum foil.

As for the rest, I wonder if it's really any better than Baskin Robbins with Hershey chocolate.

Its overpriced ice cream. You're paying the $998 for all the pretty arrangement. Take it away and you have your $2 Dairy Queen sundae. Its a rip-off.

No but you can get it from the local supermarket. Take the DQ Sundae home, top it with imported caviar - and voila - you have a deluxe sundae. I bet it still waaay cheaper than the Serendipity offering.

But this is special salt free caviar. Dessert grade. Maybe it can be had at your local liquor/gourmet store.

If you're a snob and have that kind of money on hand, do blow it on the world's most expensive dessert. Nobody has to know its ice cream.

With 5 scoops of the rarest Tahitian vanilla. Must be scoops about the size of a melon ball. I'd like to see them do butterscotch in place of the gold leaf.
