There’s a special niche in the novelty-food market for stuff that’s designed to cost as much as possible, sometimes with little regard for either taste or reason (we’re looking at you, $900 cupcake). The latest is a $77 milkshake from Oshawa-based food truck Hollywood Cone. The “Best Picture” shake looks relatively normal at first glace (well, if you don’t count all the glittery stuff on top), but that’s just an illusion; in fact, the cup is crammed with all kinds of pricey imported chocolate and edible precious metals, thus justifying the double-digit price tag. Owner Joe Kelsey told us that a single shake takes about 30 to 40 minutes to prepare from start to finish, which explains why these puppies need to be pre-ordered at least 48 hours in advance. For anyone who’d like to attempt to craft their own extravagant dessert drink, Zagat Toronto has a step-by-step rundown on how it’s made.
