What will $60,000 get you?  At the Three Twins Ice Cream Company in San Rafael, California, you can splurge on what they call The World's More Expensive Most Expensive Ice Cream Sundae, is an enhanced version of their The World's Most Expensive Ice Cream Sundae which is a banana split topped with syrups from three rare dessert wines that comes with a personal cello performance and served using a vintage ice cream spoon from the 1850s.  That particular treat will cost you $3,400, with a third of the fee donated to a land trust as part of the company's conservation initiative.  But the more expensive version will throw in a first-class flight to Tanzania, where your "More Most Expensive" sundae will be created with hand-churned ice cream using glacial ice from Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest peak. While this may sound ridiculously overpriced for an ice cream sundae, Three Twins Ice Cream founder and Survivor contestant, Neal Gottlieb is using the decadence to highlight conservation efforts as scientist predict the glaciers on top on the mountain will be done within 10-15 years due to climate change. Besides $20,000 of your sundae price will go to an African environmental non-profit, you be treated to unlimited ice cream, swank accommodations, a guided hike up the mountain and you'll get a t-shirt at the end. Since it is a banana split, you can split the cost of the package with a friend, so all you need to come up with is $85,000. You can place your order herer [CLICK HERE].
