Serendipity's golden sundae

I hear there's a cheaper version with lead.

In September 2004, the restaurant honored its 50th anniversary with the creation of the Golden Opulence Sundae. The decadent creation consists of five scoops of ice cream made from the world's most expensive vanilla beans, rare and exotic chocolates, imported candied fruits and 23-carat gold leaf topping. It is served in a Baccarat crystal goblet -- which consumers get to keep -- and eaten with a golden spoon. Not surprisingly, the Golden Opulence Sundae clinched the Guinness Book of World Records title as the World's Most Expensive Ice Cream Sundae immediately after its debut.


Could I get in the Guiness book if I sold you a pint of Cherry Garcia for $9000?

Candied fruit. Blech. You know there's some cocktail that uses 24 carat liquid gold. Or something like that. I think it's served in the Trump building. Seriously, it's about $50 or so a glass. But I don't think it's in the Guinness Book of World Records. Personally I don't like gold enough to wear much of it let alone ingest in any form.
