What is yours?
An ice cream man from CVT Soft Serve posted on Instagram a unique buyer who recently bought a whole tap of their products. Turns out, the man who bought an ice cream tap for his mansion is the richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos. Apparently, aside from getting rich, this is the irresistible treat that Bezos love to eat every day.
Jeff Bezos’ favorite treat
“I just did an ice cream delivery to a guy that now has CVT on tap in his house 24/7,” the post reads, accompanied by a photo of founder Joe Nicchi. “Thank you Jeff Bezos for being our first residential #CVTeeny client.”
He added, “What. The Actual. F—?!?”
The man who posted the Instagram caption above is the founder of the Los Angeles-based soft-serve ice cream company. He said that Bezos reportedly bought the tap that dispenses vanilla, chocolate, and twist soft-serve, according to the company’s website.
The prices for a soft-serve machine can range from around $7,800 for a single-flavor countertop-sized model to roughly $22,300 for a full-sized floor model with two hoppers that allow it to dispense (and twist) two flavors.
As reported via Vice, the posted picture on Instagram looks like the residence of Bezos in Beverly Hills estate. The said mansion was sold for Bezos in February 2020 for $165 million. The mansion was formerly called the Warner Estate.
Is this real?
Though the story is not really an issue against Bezos’ image as the richest man in the world, Bezos has not yet confirmed the said post. Or whether he really bought the tap for himself or maybe for his children at home.
However, in a different report from Business Insider, it seemed like Bezos really likes his milk. According to the report, Bezos was once caught buying the famous Cereal Milk ice cream by chef Christina Tosi, which is intended to taste like “the bottom of your cereal bowl.”
Who is Jeff Bezos?
For those people who did not know who Jeff Bezos is, he is the currently richest man in the world. He is the founder and owner of Amazon. As of Aug. 2021, Bezos now has almost $190 billion net worth.
On July 20, he made headlines again after becoming the first private company to fly out non-astronaut personnel in space. The 10-min space trip included himself and his brother, Mark Bezos.
Related to that, Space recently reported that Bezos’ Blue Origin is planning to sue NASA. This was after the agency decided to award the ‘moon lander contract’ to its company rival SpaceX.
“Blue Origin filed suit in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in an attempt to remedy the flaws in the acquisition process found in NASA’s Human Landing System,” a Blue Origin spokesperson told TechCrunch. “We firmly believe that the issues identified in this procurement and its outcomes must be addressed to restore fairness, create competition, and ensure a safe return to the moon for America.”
The lawsuit “challenges NASA’s unlawful and improper evaluation of proposals submitted under the HLS Option A BAA,” or broad agency announcement, Blue Origin said in the motion to seal filings, according to SpaceNews.
