Guinness World Records has awarded this ice-cream the incredible honour as it retails for ¥880 000 (around R120,000).

Tadayoshi Yamada, the head chef at RiVi, was given the task and used expensive ingredients which include a rare white truffle grown in Alba, Italy, that will cost you 2 million Japanese yen (around R278,000) per kg, sake lees, Parmigiano Reggiano, and topped with gold leaf.

If you do want to spend some money and try the world's most expensive ice-cream, then you can have it shipped from Japan and according to Cellato: “There is no expiration date, but we recommend eating it as soon as possible, about 10 days after purchase, in order to preserve the flavour and texture. [Shipping method] Frozen flight (Yamato Transport).”
