It’s tough to remember a time when the 99 ice cream actually cost 99p. With an ice cream cone costing anywhere up to £2 – or even some-more depending on where you’re getting it, we can’t know since it’s still even called a ’99’.
But now, there actually is an ice cream estimable of holding that name – yet it it doesn’t hold up to the hopes of costing under a pound.
Nope, this ice cream will set you back £99. Yes, seriously.
The Billionaire’s Soft Serve, which has unsurprisingly been dubbed Britain’s many costly ice cream, facilities a pickled caramel ice cream which is piped into a handmade cone that has been dipped into Madagascan dim chocolate and coated with golden pearls.
And it gets fancier.
£99 Soft Serve, ‘The Billionaire’! Made with Persian blue pickled caramel gelato, a palm prepared cone dipped in singular 75% criollo cocoa singular planation Madagascan dim chocolate, gelato spheres of mango, ginger and passion fruit, caramelised pecans, a Belgian white chocolate truffle filled with pickled caramel sauce, a hiss sorbetto macaroon flashy with white chocolate glitter and succulent diamonds. It’s coated in 24 carat bullion leaf, served with a bullion flake… Do we need to go on? #snowflakegelato #snowflake #luxury #selfridges #billionaire #bling

The ice cream is then ornate with succulent diamonds, a gold-leaf coated splinter and is surfaced with succulent diamonds, caramelised pecans and Belgian white chocolate truffles filled with caramel.
And as if that wasn’t enough, the ice cream is also served with pipettes of mango, ginger and passion fruit sauce, and a hiss sorbet macaroon.
It’s then finally finished off with a coast of 24 carat bullion leaf, just so you’re getting your money’s worth.
It has landed: the £99 Soft Serve finish with 24 carat bullion leaf. Exclusive to the Selfridges boutique. #icecream #icecreamcone #gelato #billionaire #selfridges #luxury #snowflake #snowflakegelato

It sounds a lot to hoop – and that’s since it is. The ice cream, which was constructed by British ice cream builder Snowflake Luxury Gelato and can be found at the Selfridges boutique, weighs 350g and needs two hands to hold it but spilling it everywhere.
Sure, it sounds like a dream, but remember people – it costs scarcely £100. £100 on an ice cream. That’s two weeks worth of food shopping. Two new pairs of jeans. A span of imagination trainers. 50 customary ice creams.
We’re just not certain we can face interruption ways with so much income for 5 mins of mouthgasms.
Though it is tempting, we must admit.
