Have you ever considered that a scoop of ice cream could be more expensive than gold? A cafe in Dubai recently claimed to have created the world’s most expensive ice cream, which costs 3000 dirhams.
Shenaz Treasury, a VJ and travel blogger, posted a video on Instagram of herself enjoying the “world’s most expensive” ice cream. Treasury, called “Black Diamond,” is served in a Versace bowl at Dubai’s Scoop Café, which will cost you PKR 132,790. Yes, you heard it right.
The ice cream is made with extremely rare ingredients like Madagascar vanilla and black truffles from Italy. The addition of Iranian saffron on the top and edible 23-carat gold flakes gives a sense of elegance to the ice cream. The exquisite ice cream is served with a silver spoon in a Versace bowl.
In just a few minutes, the video went viral, with over 208k views and 760 comments. The majority of netizens stated that 3000 dirhams would be better spent elsewhere.
According to Guinness World Records, this ice cream isn’t the most costly in the world; the Frrrozen Hot Chocolate at Serendipity 3 restaurant in New York City, which costs roughly $25,000, is by far the most expensive.
