Premium Japanese ice cream brand Cellato has broken the Guinness World Record for the most expensive ice cream in the world, with each serving costing an eye-watering 880,000 yen (approx. THB 220,119).
‘Gelato that delights even your cells,’ is their motto, and Cellato is really looking to feed fans with something different. The special ice cream is called Byakuya, which consists of different rare ingredients of the finest quality.
What goes into the world’s most expensive ice cream?
The ice cream combines two types of cheeses as its base, together with one of the most expensive truffles in the world, the white Alba truffle, as a scent enhancer. Just the truffle alone is priced at USD 15,192 (approx. THB 526,250) per kilo. The sake lees, which are a by-product of traditional sake, are added for more complexity. Sprinkled on top are white truffle shavings, Parmigiano cheese flakes, and white truffle oil, for a beautiful fusion of European and Japanese ingredients. It all comes together as the world’s most expensive ice cream, now sold at the whopping price of yen 880,000 or around THB 220,119.
