Can this really be that much better than regular old vanilla? There’s a new record for world’s most expensive ice cream, $6,696 PER SCOOP.
A luxury ice cream brand in Japan called Cellato is selling it. It’s a new flavor they came up with called “Byakuya”.
The ingredients include edible gold leaf, a fancy parmesan cheese, and rare white truffles grown in Italy that cost $7,000 a pound.
It’s also got something called “sake kasu“, it’s a yeasty paste that’s left over when you make rice wine. It apparently adds a fruity taste.
They say it took a year-and-a-half to perfect the recipe, and it supposedly tastes great. They say it’s extremely “rich.” Yeah, you also have to be rich to afford it.
