Damn, that is one expensive dessert

The AP reported on a $25,000 dessert. Some restaurant in New York City is offering this concoction:

"The dessert is a frozen, slushy mix of cocoas from 14 countries, milk and 5 grams of 24-carat gold topped with whip cream and shavings from a La Madeline au Truffle.

It is served in a goblet with a band of gold decorated with 1 carat of diamonds and served with a golden spoon diners can take home."

Well, at least they let you take the spoon home. I guess they figured they had to give you some sort of memento after you plunked down 25K for some chocolate slushie in a fancy cup. Go figure. It does make my little cup of applesauce that I am having with my lunch seem kind of puny, but I bet it's healthier.
