The world’s most expensive desserts
Three Twins Ice-cream founder Neal Gottlieb can vouch for the fact that his sundaes are the most expensive ice-cream in the world and we think he is right for the range varies from $3,333.33 to $85,000. Best known for its local organic ice creams in unusual flavors like strawberry with balsamic vinegar, sea salt caramel and cardamom and of course its charity services, this San Francisco based creamery has a few surprises or two- 2 specialty sundaes here and let you decide. First up is the holiday favorite with a twist- a classic banana split made with syrups from three rare dessert wines–a 1960s vintage port, a Chateau d’Yquem and a German Trockenbeerenauslese. The servi(ng)ce includes cello accompaniment, and a chance to feed your soul: a third of the cost is donated to a local land trust. Priced at $3,333.33, this is only the second in line for the first is priced at $85,000 for two.
Intrigued about an ice-cream that can cost a fortune? Quite possible when it involves glacial ice from Mount Kilimanjaro! A special dessert service from Gottlieb where he will hand churn glacial ice on the premises for your ice-crea, the package includes airfare, five-star accommodations, a guided climb, a tshirt, all the ice cream the customer can eat and a five-figure donation to an African environmental nonprofit. The price: $60,000 for one or $85,000 for two.
