Byakuya by Japan-based Cellato is now the world’s most expensive ice cream at 880,000 yen ($6,351) per scoop. What makes it so expensive? Each scoop comes topped with edible gold leaf, natural cheeses and white truffle. The latter is sourced from Alba, Italy and costs nearly 2,000,000 yen ($14,430) for one kilogram.
Last, but not least, the ice cream is covered in ‘Sakekasu’, a paste derived from the sake-making process. This wasn’t just a random idea that Cellato came up with overnight, but rather one that took over 1.5-years to develop. There were a lot of trials and errors to perfect the taste that merges European ingredients with Japanese foods. Should you be fortunate enough to try a scoop at RiVi in Osaka, customers are first asked to pour in the white truffle just as the ice cream softens, before mixing it with a handmade metal spoon.
