Reason No. 286 we're a fat nation

If you're a globetrotting glutton, New York City may still be the place to go.

A few years ago, the race was on to create the most expensive burger in Manhattan. Now, it's time for dessert.

FAO Sweetz, the upscale ice cream parlor inside the legendary FAO Schwartz toy store on Fifth Avenue, is serving up "The Volcano." It's one scoop each of 12 different ice cream flavors inside a Belgian chocolate mountain, topped with cherries, whipped cream, chocolate rocks and seven different toppings. The price: $100.

It takes two waiters to deliver the treat, and customers are given tools to crack open the chocolate shell.
