You've got to wonder just how much you'd get if you fished the gold out of one of these.... I would have thought it'd be more that 20 euros, but apparently not!

Here's some photos of that gold liquor that my friend brought back from Europe. He said it was about 20 Euros for the bottle. I believe it was a schnapps of some sort - can't find much about it on Google.
Ok, so this isn't exactly a foodstuff, but it is expensive, and it is in a blender ;) Those crazy guys over at BlendTec
wanted to see if an iPhone would blend in one of their blenders. That's one expensive smoothie!
Everybody knows that the iPhone can make phone calls, play movies & music, surf the web, and a lot more. But, Will It Blend? That is the question.

The Ferrari of cognacs, $10,000 per bottle
The basic premise with this drink is, if you can't afford a Ferrari, you can't afford this Cognac. Pretty close to the mark I'd say. At $480/glass, this is one drink you don't want to go fast...

The $10,000 Dollar Ice Cream Challenge
This video is just bizarre. The whole point of the video was to show how good the "Dripnot" Ice Cream Holder is, and how your Ice Cream won't melt all over your hand (and in this case, the $10,000). Sure, it does a good job, but who cares if the money got Ice Cream on it. Hasn't she ever heard of Money Laundering? (ho ho ho)
Woman melts chocolate ice cream over $10,000 dollars with a torch! Crazy demo of Dripnot Ice Cream Cone holder.

What: Baked Potato with white truffles
Where: The Four Seasons Restaurant
Justification: For the ultimate feeling of being full and horny - isn't a potato with truffles better than a chalupa and Spanish fly?
