L.A. Cocktail Bar Unveils $500 Gold-Flaked Milkshake, For Peasants

For all its fancy cars and coveted zip codes, Los Angeles still has a lot to learn about the luxury dessert game. A new cocktail bar in Hollywood called the Powder Room is generating a lot of hype for selling a $500 milkshake made with edible gold and Belgian chocolate and featuring a takeaway Swarovski Crystal ring.

Yawwwwwn.

The “Grand Opulence” from Serendipity 3 in New York already doubles that price tag and comes with a crystal goblet. Connecticut’s Knipschildt Chocolatier’s “Frrrozen Haute Chocolate” ($25,000) is made with gold foil and truffle shavings. Don’t even get us started on Japan’s $5 M diamond chocolate cake.

So nice try, Powder Room. You’ve managed to create a decadent dessert for the peons. Call us when your milkshake brings Tony Stark to our yard, mmkay?
