Sweet Truth

Big Price Tag, But It’s A Real Gem

This is the ultimate sweet-tooth treat. A Sri Lankan resort is charging $14,500 for what it calls the world's most expensive dessert, a fruit-infused confection complete with a chocolate sculpture and a gigantic gemstone. "The Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence" was created to give visitors at The Fortress resort in the coastal city of Galle a one-of-a-kind experience, said the hotel's public relations manager, Shalini Perera. She said the hotel has taken calls about it from as far away as Japan, but no one has paid to try it.

FOOTNOTE: Is this Priscilla, Queen of the Dessert?

I take it that it is NOT sweetened with Splenda, then?

At least it's not ironic to the point of being sponsored by the American Diabetes Association....!
