The Frrrozen Haute Chocolate
Price per unit: $25,000
The frozen haute chocolate ice-cream is one of the most expensive desserts in the world. It was created in November 2007 by the luxury jewelry company “Euphoria New York,” and it takes two days to be prepared.
The dessert is made with the finest blend of over 28 of the world’s most expensive and rarest cocoas, and it is decorated with 5 grams of edible 23-karat gold. It is served in a goblet covered with edible gold whose base is wrapped by an 18-karat gold bracelet embellished with white diamonds. Everything is accompanied by a gold spoon with more diamonds, of course.
A bottle of Acqua di Cristallo
Price per unit: $60,000
A bottle of Acqua di Cristallo contains water from France and Fiji that is bottled in a container made entirely of solid 24-karat gold.
There are cheaper variations of it, such as the silver, crystal or leather bottles, but they still cost $3,700 each.
And yet, when it comes to gold, our gold bars are the best choice.
