Would You Spend $100 on a Doughnut?
If your New Year's resolutions were to lose weight and save money, there's a Filipino restaurant in Brooklyn, New York that really wants you to break both of them simultaneously.
The Manila Social Club just introduced a new item, a $100 doughnut.
Here's how they justify the price. The doughnut is filled with a mix of mousse and champagne jelly, the icing is made out of Cristal champagne, and the top is covered in 24-karat gold flakes.
The owner of Manila Social Club says they're actually selling and people aren't just buying one. "I didn't know people would go and order a dozen at a time. But then again, it is New York, and there are people willing to put down a grand for a dozen donuts."
Or you could order a dozen donuts at Dunkin's about eleven times.
