Donuts are delicious. We all know that. But you never really feel “good” after you’ve eaten one (especially for those of us over the age of 30). Well now you can feel like f*cking royalty with this 24-karat donut because eating gold on top of a pastry just sounds awesome. Breakfast at Tiffany’s, anyone? I think so!
Looking like something fresh out of Willy Wonka’s toaster oven, this golden delight comes from the Manila Social Club under the title Golden Cristal Ube Donut. Simply calling this thing a “golden donut” ain’t gonna cut it, especially once you find out how much it costs.
The Manila Social Club is giving you the chance to feel like a real King Ralph for just $100 a donut. One donut won’t do you say? Try paying $1000 if you wanted to take a dozen of these suckers home with you. I don’t know if you’ve ever eaten gold but deep fried sugar by itself for just a buck probably tastes just as good, right? So really a donut like this would only appeal to people who have chandeliers in their apartments (yes, those people do exist) and not us folks who still have to use public transportation now and again.
But believe it or not, this isn’t the only fancified donut the world has ever offered people who like to just burn their money. One other donut takes the cake when it comes to price.
This donut costs $1462.94
This donut has, of all things, champagne jelly with an edible 24-karat leaf and 24-karat “gold dust”. Oh, it also comes with edible diamonds…which probably aren’t diamonds because you can’t eat diamonds! The best part however is the donut itself is just a Krispy Kreme donut. Jokes on you, Richie Rich!
So really, I guess $100 bucks for a plain old gold donut isn’t a bad deal at all in comparison.
