Mr. Richard Wright on November 13, 2011:

Pathetic. Awful. Worst 1000$ I EVER SPENT. Terrible.

Ollie on November 13, 2011:

I went to New York City from the UK where I live and I purchased this golden desert treat! I lo0o0o0o0o0o0o0ved it but my colleague thought it was a pitiful excuse for ice cream, nevermind gold. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

Hatin on golden ice cream on October 03, 2011:

Even if that ice were free I don't think I would eat it. Edible gold? Isn't gold for wearing and not for eating! I have to admit that they must of put a lot of time and effort to make it. I would much rather buy something that would last a while than buying something that only lasts five minutes.

vivek on July 24, 2011:

it is worth eating but not worth spending!!!!!! 1000$ wow!!!!!! may be my 10 months pocket money will make me eligible for the buy!!!!!

Fosamax Recall on May 16, 2011:

Fosamax Fracture Lawyer on April 06, 2011:

OMG? for $1000? I would rather buy many gallons of Ice cream for hat cause. But the price is good for the recipe itself.

naturelover64 on July 15, 2010:

Wow! it certainly does look delicious but there are a lot of things I could do with $1000 so I will have to turn down the $1000 ice cream. Very interesting

Someone in the world on June 14, 2010:
