Krispy Kreme Unveils The World’s Most Expensive Doughnut

worlds-most-expensive-doughnut-sMetro reports –

Krispy Kreme’s deluxe doughnut was unveiled in Selfridges’ Oxford Street store this morning and presented as a prize to one (hopefully hungry) make-up artist from London who said it looked ‘too good to eat’. The gold doughnut, which took three days to assemble, is filled with Dom Perignon 2002 vintage champagne jelly and raspberry and Chateau d’Yquem creme and is topped with a passion fruit glaze, edible 24ct gold leaf, handmade gold-dusted Belgian white chocolate lotus flowers, blossoms, ivy and butterflies, and edible ‘diamonds’. Although the £1k doughnut is not for sale, you can buy a more budget-friendly version by the dozen. They cost £39.95 per doughnut from Selfridges in London or Birmingham. These hand-crafted versions contain the 24 carat gold leaf and are bejazzled with white chocolate flowers, butterflies and more of those phoney diamonds.

I’m guessing that the true lies somewhere in the middle – the homemade version might be good, but not exactly the same as Twinkies. Personally, I don’t understand all the love shown for a non-chocolate snack cake.

Cicada Ice Cream Is A Hit – WTF? reports –

Insect-filled cicada ice cream never had a chance to be placed in the display case at Sparky’s Homemade Ice Cream before it was all gone. Surprising the employees at Sparky’s, the new flavor was so popular that it sold out Wednesday night before it was set to be out for display on Thursday.

 “When we opened, Tony was just bombarded,” Christian Losciale, an employee at Sparky’s, said about the rush of customers looking for cicada ice cream Thursday morning. Sparky’s employee Tony Layson was the first in the shop when it opened on Thursday. The ice cream was supposed to make its debut Thursday, but as Columbians got word of the new flavor on Wednesday, curious customers went in early to see if they could try a scoop or two. “Before we could put it out front we were selling it out of the back,”said Augustine Accurso, an employee at Sparky’s about the sales Wednesday night.
