This Insanely Expensive Ice Cream Costs $817 A Scoop


The hotter it gets, the less we think about how expensive ice cream is getting. Though, we’re pretty sure it’ll never get to the point where we’d buy ice cream at $817 a scoop. That’s just bananas.

Dubai’s Scoopi Cafe is known for offering what they call the world’s most expensive ice cream. The cafe’s “Black Diamond” dessert is made with a Madagascar vanilla bean ice cream. While that doesn’t sound too extravagant, the dessert is topped with Italian truffles and rare ambrosial Iranian saffron (about $100 an ounce). The Black Diamond is also topped with edible 23-karat gold flakes.

Since some rare chocolates and edible gold still doesn’t seem enough to justify such an expensive dish, the dessert comes with a Versace bowl and a matching spoon. Only two orders have been sold so far.
