Key West Ice Cream Parlor Has A $250 Ice Cream Bar On Their Menu
This reminds me of the old Eddie Murphy bit “I got some ice cream, and you can’t have none, cuz you can’t afford it”. But this is real life. And it’s here in Florida. The Key West Ice Cream Parlor, DOOZEE Bespoke Ice Cream Bar is located at 123 Duval St. in Key West, Florida and they have the most expensive ice cream bar in the world. It’s called the “The To’ak Bar”. And if you can handle the $250 price tag – for an ice cream bar – it does seem like quite the treat.
At DOOZEE’s the “Bar” Tender will make you one custom to order. First by using their luxury vanilla bar and then dipping the bar into a premium chocolate coating. Next up, the Bar Tender picks up a Hermes Spoon to scoop up shaved morsels of the most expensive and rarest chocolate in the world – To’ak chocolate, and places it right on the bar. Then they cover the bar with edible 24k gold leaf and to top it off sugar diamonds.
If you frequent Key West and DOOZEE doesn’t sound familiar, don’t fret. It looks like they just opened late last year.
Right before Christmas. They’re on Duval, one block north of Sloppy Joe’s, and Irish Kevin’s. (Been there, and been there). If you’re looking for a treat with a smaller price tag, the $250 ice cream bar isn’t the only thing on the menu.
Jim Epstein, owner says “If customers do not have the big bucks to spend on the To’ak Bar, this place is filled with unique Wonka-like wonders for everyone including $3.50 cup of frozen yogurt or you can make a Doozee Bar one of the favorites, which is a Mr. Beast Chocolate Almond Bar.”
There’s 24 different toppings to choose from to add to your Key West ice cream bar.
What does the owner, Jim Epstein, go for? “I do like the White Chocolate with Flaming Hot Cheetos, and a White Chocolate drizzle.” Wow. That sounds like something you’d order after a night at Sloppy Joe’s. Ha. Other unique ‘extra’ toppings include Dom Perignon Gummy Bears, Organic Rose Petals, and24k Gold Flakes. Even if you’d rather keep it simple, I still recommend adding the Skulls and Bones Sprinkles. or Captain Crunch. Each bar is completely customizable and made to order.
It is, however, a little cold right now for ice cream, so if you’re in the area and want to try out this new place, they also have “Pay Dirt.” A double chocolate cookie, which is coated in fudge frosting, dusted with Oreo cookies crumbs, and sitting on top, a mini gold shovel and sugar gold nugget. Sounds incredibly decadent. I’m considering booking on the Key West Express just to go for ice cream. And grab one of those cookies to go.
