National Enquirer - - ODD LIST -

NEW York City is syn­ony­mous with as­tro­nom­i­cal prices — but this is ridicu­lous. Say hello to the $100 milk­shake!

Pa­trons of a trendy Man­hat­tan eatery named Serendip­ity 3 are pony­ing up a C-note for a pricey sip of what has been of­fi­cially des­ig­nated The World’s Most Ex­pen­sive Shake by Guin­ness World Records.

The shake’s in­gre­di­ents in­clude milk from cat­tle bred in the Chan­nel Is­lands off the coast of France; ice cream in­fused with slow-grown, sun-cured vanilla beans; rich fla­vor from the beans of a Mada­gas­car vanilla plant; and — to top it off — 23-karat, ed­i­ble gold “sprin­kles.”

And if that’s not op­u­lent enough for your ex­pen­sive tastes, the dessert is served in a glass adorned with more than 3,000 Swarovski crys­tals.

“It was ex­cit­ing to de­velop such a unique recipe, and I hope our cus­tomers en­joy ev­ery drop of this creamy, rich milk­shake,” said chef Joe Calderone of the dessert.

The Luxe Milk­shake is the sev­enth record-break­ing cre­ation that Serendip­ity 3 has dreamed up. The res­tau­rant also holds the ti­tle for Most Ex­pen­sive Sand­wich,

Most Ex­pen­sive Ham­burger, Most Ex­pen­sive Dessert, Most Ex­pen­sive Hot Dog, Largest Wed­ding Cake and Largest

Cup of Hot Choco­late.

The ques­tion is how can any­body af­ford to eat there? And that’s how this crazy shake spilled its way to the top of this week’s Odd List!
