Fantasy Food: The $1,000 Popsicle & More
From Fox News, the Marquis Los Cabos resort in Baja California Sur, Mexico is now offering a $1,000 Popsicle made from 24 ct. gold flakes and Tequilas Premium Clase Azul Ultra—a premium liquor that goes for $1,500 a bottle. You can enjoy the gold-laced ice pop as you're lounging by the pool.
Sounds insanely rarified, but with a little Google digging, many other fantasy foods emerge. Nino's Bellissima restaurant in NYC serves pizza laden with creme fraiche, caviar, lobster, and a little wasabi for $1,000.
The Merchant Hotel in Belfast, Ireland serves a $1,400 Mai Tai made from an extremely rare bottle of Wray and Nephew Rum.
NYC's Serendipity serves the Grand Opulence Sundae made with the following ingredients: Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla; 23K edible gold leaf; Amedei Porceleana, the world's most expensive chocolate, as well as the rare Chuao chocolate, made from cocoa beans harvested by the Caribbean Sea on the coast of Venezuela; candied fruits from Paris, gold dragets, truffles and Marzipan Cherries; and finally, topped with Grand Passion Caviar, a dessert caviar made of salt-free American Golden caviar.
