Do you have a sweet tooth? Although I do like to have sweet things, dessert is very much an optional extra. I know people (my ex-MIL, for example) who would happily forget the rest of a meal and go for the pud, but not me.
You probably saw the story a couple of days ago - A restaurant in New York has unveilled a new dessert. If you have a special occaision coming up, you might want to try and persuade your other half to buy you one - I'm sure they'll do deliveries for a reasonable charge.
The dessert in question costs $25,000 and is laced with edible gold. Jean Knee, who walked out of a restaurant with a plate, will be pleased to note that she'll be expected to take the spoon with her (though I suspect it doesn't really go with the plate).
If your budget doesn't stretch that far, then there are cheaper options - the ice cream sundae is priced at a very reasonable $1,000.
Presumably someone would only buy the record-breaking sweet in order to impress their "friends".
But, supposing that you ordered it, took a mouthful and didn't like it? It would be unfortunate if you had to spit it out. "You mean you don't like the taste of gold?", your friends would gasp. So my advice is that if you ever do end up getting this, don't touch it. Say you're not hungry, pay the bill and leave. Don't even take the spoon. That would be even more impressive...
