The $1000 Bagel

I'm always on the lookout for abnormally expensive food products. Tonight, I discovered the $1000 bagel. What would you expect on a bagel that costs that much? I'm thinking cream cheese made with the milk of a single cow which feasts entirely on alpine grasses and herbs, the flesh from a salmon that was raised on sake and massaged daily, topped with a generous scoop of beluga caviar and served with a glass of champagne.
    What's really on the thing? "...white truffle cream cheese and goji berry infused Riesling jelly with golden leaves."
    You can aquire such a bagel at the Westin New York Hotel at Times Square. And unlike other ridiculously priced products I've seen, this one is meant to raise money for scholarships to be awarded to culinary students. If you do decide to spring for one, make sure to order 24 hours in advance.

Wow. $1,000. Three months food bill for our family of five. The idea is overwhelming.
