Movie:  Enchanted Euphoria starring Serendipity 3

Can you name any of the many movies that have featured “sets”  in New York’s famous ice cream parlor, Serendipity 3?  And did you know that “Serendipity 3” has just been named in the Guinness Book of World Records as having the World’s Most Expensive Dessert?  Owner Stephen Bruce (along with the help of New York jeweler Euphoria) has created  a “solid gold sundae” made of 28 cocoas and infused with 5 grams of edible 23 karat gold.   Yes, edible gold!  This delectably delicious dessert also contains a side of La Madeline au Truffle  from Knipschildt Chocolatier (which–sells for $2,600 a pound!).  And–if–you finish the “whole thing” — guess what you’ll find in the bottom of the dish?  An 18 karat gold bracelet! (The spoon, which you also get to keep, is also gold and is set with white and chocolate-colored diamonds….”Yum!  Yum!”  said the princess in Disney’s “Enchanted”).  Price: $25,000
