Cheekily billed as the "World’s Most Expensive Sundae," Three Twins jumps aboard (however satirically) the expensive-food bandwagon with the $3,333.33 sundae. What's in it, you ask? Organic ice cream and syrups made from jarringly expensive wines, for starters, not to mention live cello accompaniment. Three Twins founder, Neal Gottlieb, an Ivy League-educated man who spent "$70,000 life's savings and a $25,000 loan from his parents" to create the inarguably tasty ice cream empire that we love ever so, explained to the Chronicle what said sundae would entail. Behold:
"I put it up not really as a joke, but for something fun for people to read while they're waiting in line.
"I really hate the most expensive (dot dot dot) when most of the expense is for the serving dish, like the most expensive cocktail that comes in a crystal chalice. We serve the most expensive sundae, but the food cost is one-third of the price. It's three scoops of organic ice cream; a banana, organic of course; and is topped with three syrups made from three extremely rare dessert wines - a 1960s vintage Port, a Chateau D'Yquem and a German Trockenbeerenauslese. It also comes with a cellist who will play anything you want while you eat the sundae.
"Be sure to wear your 'I'm part of the 1 percent' card on your chest when you order it."
Gottlieb goes on to say that someone who would buy such a silly treat would be "absurd" and "probably new money." Which is to say, have at it, nascent Facebook millionaires!
