Extravagance and ice cream don’t usually go hand in hand but we’d expect nothing less from the city known for its love of the absurdly expensive.
Straight from the city of Dubai comes the most expensive bowl of frozen milk and sugar ever created. Dubai’s Scoopi Cafe is serving up a single scoop of ice cream priced at AED2,999 ($816 US).
“The newly launched chocolatier and ice cream cafe on Al Wasl Road is selling a scoop of their signature ice cream, the “Black Diamond,” which is made with exotic Madagascar vanilla ice cream, the world’s most expensive Iranian saffron and slices of black Italian truffle. But perhaps the most pricey ingredient is the 23-carat edible gold, which is sprinkled on top of the scoop.
The ice cream comes in a Versace bowl and spoon, which the customer gets to keep.”
If you had the disposal income, and the sweet tooth for a confection costing half of the average payment, would you take a massive bite of expensive bowl of frozen milk?
