Who would like some $816 gold ice cream?

Wednesday February 25th, 2015

Next time you are shocked at how much a scoop of fancy gourmet ice cream costs, just take a deep breath and be glad you are not in Dubai.

The United Arab Emirates city is known for its opulence, so new ice cream shop Scoopi decided to offer an $816 scoop called "Black Diamond" that is flavored with Madagascar vanilla, Iranian saffron and black Italian truffles, and finished off with some edible gold, according to The Roosevelts.

The costly treat comes with a Versace dish and spoon that the customer gets to keep, so you can always remember the time you spent way too much money on a scoop of ice cream.

Meanwhile in America, you can get three pounds of ice cream in a baseball helmet for just $17. USA!
