The $25,000 Hot Chocolate

What’s the best thing to eat in your $33,000 bed? A $25,000 “frrrozen haute chocolate” from Serendipity 3 in New York, obviously.

First hitting New Yorkers’ wallets and waistlines in 2007, it contains a mix of 28 different cocoas, 14 of which are the priciest known to man, five grams of 23-karat edible gold and it’s served in a chalice lined with edible gold. On top is whipped cream and yet more gold. On the side is a special truffle, La Madeline au Truffle from Knipschildt Chocolatier, which on its own sells for $2,600 a pound.

Ok, but that’s not really enough to deserve the $25,000 price tag you say. You’re right. At the bottom is an 18 karat gold bracelet with a carat of diamonds. And you’ll be eating all of this with a gold spoon set with white and chocolate-colored diamonds. Hooray.

As an added side-bonus, you may also be graced with a surprise serenade of cockroaches and ornery health inspectors.

You get to take all your cutlery and prizes home, just remember to run them through the dishwasher first before wearing.
