The $60,000 Ice Cream Sundae
Believe it or not, there's actually an ice cream dessert more expensive than the $25,000 Frrozen Haute Chocolate from Serendipity3. YumSugar recently reported that Three Twins Ice Cream offers two ridiculously expensive ice cream options. Their expensive sundae costs $3,333.33 and is a banana split drizzled with syrups made from three rare dessert wines including a 1960s vintage Port, a Château d'Yquem and a German Trockenbeerenauslese and with a spoon from the 1850s. The company also donates one third, $1,111.11, from the sale of each sundae to the Napa Land Trust.
But what's really impressive is the $60,000 "World's More Expensive Most Expensive Ice Cream Sundae." If you buy this you get to travel to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro where Three Twins Ice Cream founder will handchurn a batch of ice cream using the glacial ice found at the summit. The mountain's glaciers are expected to disappear in 10 to 15 years and the purchase will bring awareness to climate change (the company will also make a five figure donation to an African environmental nonprofit.) The cost includes first class airfare to Tanzania, five-star accommodations, a guided climb, an organic T-shirt and all the ice cream you can eat.
