I just saw where a restaurant in Atlantic City is offering a brownie for $1,000. Would you pay that much money (if you had it) for a brownie? What would it have to have in order for you to pay that much? I would never pay that much for a brownie or any food item.

Now maybe if it came with, oh say, Brad Pitt or Harry Conick Jr. to serve it to me in bed!

Think I'm with you Melizzy! It should come with something extraordinary. I would never pay that much for a brownie or any other food. Unless like the previous comments, it was a cure for some disease.

Pot Leaf - Pot brownies might fetch $1,000.
I think the only kind of brownies you might get a $1,000 for would be a brownie that contained a little something extra.

Never! Unless, of course, it had the ability to make my size 8 butt fit into size 4 jeans! :O)

There's no way I'd pay $1,000 for a brownie unless it instantly made me lose weight down to 125 pounds, gave me a nose job, made Chris Meloni and Lee Tergesen highly and permantly attracted to me, cured me of PCOS, and cleaned my house twice a week. Oh, and did my laundry. :P

absolutely not. i don't think any kind of food or drink is worth $1000. that's completely rediculous and what's the point. it's just going into your stomach and out the other way.

No way! That's a reaaaally expensive piece of pastry. But if that will make me immortal, hey, why not? LOL

No I would not pay $1,000 for a Brownie. What could that brownie be made of ? I usually will go up to maybe $5.00 for a brownie but anymore then that no way. When I think of all the things I could do with a $1,000 it seems like a shame to waste it on a brownie.

Tell me about it! That money could do so much more than buy a stupid brownie. Even if I were rich, I wouldn't spend that much on a brownie.

Oh god. What kind of restaurant would sell a single brownie for $1000 dollars?! Where did the boss of the restaurant come from, Absurdistan? Uh-uh, that is downright discrimnatory to poor people! This is outright ridiculous! That is, unless the brownie was made from the finest and most luxurious chocolates in the world, filled with crispy truffles and served on a gold platter. Otherwise, I wouldn't purchase it for even $10,000.

I think to spend such a large amount as $1000 on a single food item is shear IDIOTIC and has no sense as far as i can see. We can buy a lot better eatables out of $1000 . What good is spending our hard earned money which can't even fill our belly. So the debate is off.

Never, I wouldn't pay even a dollar for a brownie. You see, I'm not much of a brownie lover. Maybe if it was a magical brownie then it would worth a dollar or two.

I saw that article yesterday. My husband and I ate at that dessert restuarant last summer when we stayed at the Tropicana. It was not very impressive, it is not the most welcoming place to eat, not comfortable at all. When I read the article I was surprised to see that the place was still there.

If it was going to charity and I had that kind of money to be spending of food then I would!! There has to be some reason they are selling it for $1000 - we all know if doesn't cost that much to make one little brownie.

No i wouldn't pay that for a brownie. but i also saw on tv once where a martini bar was selling a martini for 10,000.00. i forget what the drink was called but there was a real diamond at the bottom of the glass, in the drink. hope whoever paid that much for a drink didn't accidently drink the diamond.
