$25,000 hot choclate

Serendipity 3 a restaurant in Newyork, partnered with luxury jeweler Euphoria New York to create the "Frrozen Haute Chocolate," a blend of 28 cocoas, including 14 of the most expensive and exotic from around the globe.

The dessert, spelled with two Rs, is infused with 5 grams (0.2 ounces) of edible 23-karat gold and served in a goblet lined with edible gold. At the base of the goblet is an 18-karat gold bracelet with 1 carat of white diamonds.

The sundae is topped with whipped cream covered with more gold and a side of La Madeline au Truffle from Knipschildt Chocolatier.

The restaurant - a setting for the John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale movie "Serendipity" - already holds the record for the most expensive drink, the $1,000 Golden Opulence Sundae

What the hell is edible gold?? This is absurd, but the whole point is to generate PR and media loves to cover such monkey deeds.

On other side –

Every day around 24,000 people die directly from hunger or hunger related diseases and some 800 million people in the world suffer from hunger and malnutrition,and 1 billion people across the globe living on less than $1 a day.

Nearly one in four people, 1.3 billion - live on less than $1 per day, while the world's 358 billionaires have assets exceeding the combined annual incomes of countries with 45 percent of the world's people

3 billion people in the world today struggle to survive on US$2/day.
