October 14 is National Dessert Day! So if you like to observe your holidays in style, here’s an option that doesn’t get any more grand — the Candy Kong Sundae.
Where to Find It
This monster will only be served through October 17 at the Sugar Factory at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, so thankfully you can’t make it a habit. The Sugar Factory, a hotspot associated with celebs like Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Pitbull, Drake, and Jennifer Lopez, is often referred to as the “most Instagrammed restaurant in the United States.” Already known for its designer lollipops and 64 oz. alcohol-infused smoking candy goblets, this shop’s gargantuan treat looks to become the stuff of legend.
Twenty-four scoops of different ice cream flavors are garnished with red, green, blue, and white chocolate ganache, then topped with whipped cream and the contents of a candy counter (Nerds, Spree, peach gummies, mini Jawbreakers, watermelon drops, gummy bears, M&M’s, Pop Rocks). And if that weren’t enough, it’s finished off with a rainbow Whirley pop, mini gumball machine, a candy necklace, Nerds rope, cotton candy sticks, and a signature Sugar Factory rubber ducky to take home.
The $99 price tag may make you flinch at first, but then, consider this: would you really be eating all of this yourself? If 10 of your closest friends came along to split the difference, it just might make plenty of sense.
