People all over the world love ice cream. Whether it’s in the middle of summer or winter, it’s never too hot or cold for a delicious scoop of ice cream.
Over recent years many different types of ice cream have been tried out and many have been very successful. From ‘nice cream’ made out of frozen bananas, to almond milk and other dairy free alternatives.
The possibilities are endless.
That’s exactly what Japanese ice cream brand Cellato thought when they set out to make the world’s most expensive ice cream.
After 18 months of preparation and taste testing, the world’s most expensive ice cream was born.
Byakua was awarded the Guinness World Records title recently when it announced that the ice cream sells for nearly R130,000 a scoop.
It contains white truffle grown in Alba, Italy, Parmigiana Reggiano and sake lees (or sake kasu), a by-product of Japanese sake production that contains 8% alcohol, reports the New York Post.
Besides the cheeses and expensive white truffle, Byakua also contains edible gold. An ingredient that has increased the price per scoop immensely.
