What resembles the popsicles we made as kids with plastic molds is anything but ordinary up close; these goldsicles pack a wallop beyond our wildest childhood memories.
The exclusive $1,000 pop is made from Tequilas Premium Clase Azul Ultra, which goes for $1,500 a bottle with gold flakes and a touch of sugar to take off the edge. For those on a budget, there's straight Clase Azul Ultra at $500 a shot.
The tequila pop is just one of the many customized luxuries you can enjoy at the Marquis Los Cabos, but eat it quickly before it melts under the desert sun. It may be the fastest way to indulge your gold fantasies, but think about the bragging rights.
