If you had all the money in the world: Food Edition

I stumbled across this very informative article on Yahoo that describes insanely expensive food.

If you had all the money in the world and you can spend as much as you want on food, will you try these:

1. The Bagel

Created by: Frank Tujague
Location: The Westin New York at Times Square, New York City
Price: $1,000

It has white truffle cream cheese, goji berry jelly, and gold leaves.

Not your cup of tea? Well you can always try...

2. Pizza

Created by: Domenico Crolla
Location: U.K.
Price: $4,200

Dubbed the "Pizza Royale 007," its toppings included cognac-marinated lobster, champagne-soaked caviar, venison and edible flakes of 24-carat gold.

Catching on already? I think it's the gold that's putting the price over the top. What about...

3. A Sundae

Created by: Serendipity 3
Location: New York City
Price: $25,000

This sundae raised the stakes set by "Golden Opulence" by using 28 cocoas and an 18-karat gold bracelet with white diamonds at the dish's base. It also comes with a side of Knipschildt Chocolatier's $2,600-a-pound La Madeline au Truffle , and is eaten with a diamond-encrusted golden spoon that the customer can keep.

Well, at least I can keep the spoon.

So, would you? With all the money in the world?

Bon Appetit!

  1. Pfft, gimme a $10 cheeseburger and toss the rest in a savings account. Seriously, I'm going to pay $1,000 for the privilege of pooping gold flakes? Really? Putting stuff like marinated lobster and cavier on a pizza? Who's dumb idea was that? The entire charm of pizza that it's a populist meal. Everyone likes it, you can find it easily anywhere in the civilized world, and when you gets one you can share it with all your friends. The universality is the soul of pizza. Doctor it up with hoity-toity nonsense, and you annihilate the appeal.

    I recall that the sundae was created to beat Golden Opulence's own Guiness Record as the most expensive dessert ever. I'm not sure it did, but in my book, including a blinged-out spoon and bracelet is cheating.

    Apologies if I'm buzzkilling anyone, but I just had to sign up for unemployment this week. Pointless displays of wealth are not something I'm in the mood for.
