The World’s Most Expensive Ice Cream Sundae — Three Twins Ice Cream, San Francisco
Description

Bet you thought the Grand Opulence sundae from Serendipity 3 would be the priciest frozen dessert on this list — think again. Three Twins Ice Cream is a small chain of organic scoop shops in Northern California, and they’ve created a sundae more expensive that you can imagine. This $3,333.33 banana split is topped with three syrups made from three extremely rare dessert wines — a 1960s vintage port, a Chateau D’Yquem, and a German Trockenbeerenauslese. They ask that you order the sundae one day in advance so that they can arrange to have a cellist play while you devour the creation.

They also offer the World's More Expensive Most Expensive Ice Cream Sundae for $60,000, which involves a trip to Africa.
