News Bites: A $1,000 Sundae and An App for Doughnut Shops

Read on for April 24th's News Bites.

The $1,000 Ice Cream Sundae

If you're still hungry after that zillion-dollar grilled cheese we told you about, why not top it off with an extra expensive ice cream sundae from Bagatelle? The Mauboussin Mega Sundae consists of homemade vanilla ice cream, homemade French macaroons, chocolate truffles, gold leaves, sorbet made of Dom Perignon rose champagne, dark chocolate brownies covered in edible 24 carat gold and fresh whipped cream covered in chocolate vodka sauce. The dessert is served in a large martini glass and also comes with a "black steel, white gold and diamond ring," which is already $590.

2014 Food Trends

Last year was all about the pretzel bread, this year is all about...spam fries? According to Food Beast, the trends to look out for include ramen-crusted chicken wings, waffle tacos and cheese-stuffed Doritos. Don't worry, Dominique Ansel's Chocolate Chip Cookie Milk Shot made the list.

A New Kind of Power Lunch

One restaurant in Tokyo lets customers who come in alone dine with a stuffed animal! Rather than let their patrons sit by themselves, the staff bring over large stuffed animals from the book and animated series Moomin.

Vietnamese Chocolate

When you think of Vietnamese food, delicious noodles or banh mi might come to mind. Now, Vietnam is set to become a powerhouse in the chocolate industry. There are over 54,000 acres of cacao in Vietnam and since shortages of the essential chocolate ingredient have been reported, this news couldn't come at a better time.
