Something that I really wish people would learn is that you can’t just throw around superlatives like “The World’s Most Expensive Chocolate Pudding” as if it’s nothing. Because maybe there are some people out there who see something like “The World’s Most Expensive Chocolate Pudding” on a website and think, “Oh, whoa, I can’t wait to see what the heck is in this chocolate pudding that makes it so expensive.” “Oh, whoa, $35,000 — that’s a lot! Just for some chocolate pudding?!” “Oh, whoa, I bet part of the chocolate was blessed by ghost, and when you eat it it has all sorts of healing powers, and it has even been reviewed by the FDA and they said it’s good to go, but all the major drug companies banded together and murdered the chef because if this magical pudding can cure all ailments then how will they make any money?! So now the pudding chef is murdered and there is only a little bit of pudding left, so every bite is $35,000, which is honestly not that bad if you think about how much a lifetime of medical care will cost you, but also it’s not covered by anyone’s health insurance (what else is new).” Right? We all have our own ideas about why this is being called “The World’s Most Expensive Chocolate Pudding.” But, uh, did anyone guess that it’s called “The World’s Most Expensive Chocolate Pudding” because the chef is a straight-up LIAR????

Uhhh…that looks super gross, but also, REWIND!!!

THERE’S A DIAMOND ON IT?! You factor the cost of the diamond into the overall cost of the dessert!? Ugh. What a stupid let down. I bet it’s only like $17,000 without that diamond and I’m sure there’s WAY more expensive pudding out there than that. “I created the world’s most expensive pizza — I put two computers on a pizza.” -This chef in college. ” “I created the world’s most expensive t-shirt. I used very expensive fabric, and then I packaged it in a helicopter.” – This chef if he made t-shirts. “I bought you the world’s most expensive little box. Will you marry me?” – This chef proposing to his girlfriend. (Via BuzzFeed.)

  1. “Seriously?”

  2. Not “the diamond is not edible.”

    “The diamond MIGHT not be edible. We’re not saying you shouldn’t swallow this diamond. We’re just saying you might not be able to.”


  3. This is not the “World’s Most Expensive Chocolate Pudding.” This is the “World’s Most Expensive Bathroom Trip.”

  4. Put a diamond on it is our generation’s put a bird on it.

  5. What a coincidence! Just the other day I made up a recipe for the worlds most expensive chocolate cake. There’s a blank check baked inside.

  6. Why would I pay $35,000 for a bowl of pudding when I could get so much more pudding for $240?


  8. Wait. WAIT. Now, as Videogum’s self-proclaimed pudding expert, I am not opposed to $35,000.00 pudding. I would save for eight thousand years to buy that pudding. Pudding is the best.

    But why the hell would anyone fuck up pudding by dumping caviar in it? And diamonds? I don’t want to lacerate my tongue while eating pudding. That is just terrible! Why would you do that, chef? YOU ARE A TERRIBLE CHEF AND YOU SHOULD FEEL REALLY REALLY BAD RIGHT NOW.

  9. “I’m just gonna rub all over this expensive chocolate with my bandaid finger. $35,000, please.” This guy.

  10. as a culinary student, allow me to lend my expertise:

    never trust the french.

  11. Snooty Waiter: Your pudding, sir

    Richy Moneybags III: Pah! You call this pudding? But there is hardly any caviahhhhhhh…

    Waiter: Pardon, sir?

    Moneybags III: And no diamonds a’tall. I say, you will pay with your life. Stab yourself repeatedly with this antique gold butter knife.

    Waiter: As you wish, sir. *stabstabstabstab…*

  12. “I am the 1%”–this pudding.

  13. Seriously. As someone who enjoys food (as opposed to most people?) and loves looking up whatever the most expensive version of a thing is, I hate it when people take normal food and then cover it with gold and diamonds and other non-edible things. THAT IS NOT AN EXPENSIVE FOOD! Likewise, covering something with caviar and truffles for no other reason than to make it expensive is also stupid and I hate it. I want something to be expensive because it is delicious, not because it is covered with expensive things. I am the 99%.

  14. “Oh, Jesus Christ.”

    -Me, refering to just about everything, fucking ever.

  15. It’s like when Damien Hirst bedecked a skull with diamonds and gold and then called it the most expensive art in the world. Uh, sir, I think you have misplaced your sense.

  16. Hey, I have some chocolate pudding here. You can have it for two million dollars.

    I mean come on, it’s not hard to make the most expensive chocolate pudding ever. I just did it.
