12 of the Most Expensive Foods and Drinks

with one comment

Check out these shockingly priced food and drink items from around the globe.

With all the talk about rising food costs, many of us find ourselves in the grocery aisles complaining about paying $4.50 for a gallon of milk. Well, you haven’t seen anything yet! We’ve compiled a list of ridiculously expensive foods and drinks—including a $250 chocolate truffle and a $700 bottle of wine—that will only have you saying “Bon appétit” if you can afford it.

1. Classic Grey Sevruga Caviar
This Russian caviar comes from the Caspian Sea and a mere 14-ounce jar will run you $2,520.


2. La Madeline au Truffe
Knipschildt Chocolatier packages this decadent sweet in its very own box, nestled on a bed of sugar pearls. Just one of these chocolate truffles costs $250.

3. Moose Milk Cheese
Called “The World’s Most Expensive Cheese” for good reason, this cheese costs $500 per pound and comes from small, private moose cow farms in rural Sweden.


4. Red Iranian Saffron
This type of saffron is of a quality called Sargol grade, which means “top of the flower,” and costs $750 for 100 grams.


5. Kobe Wagyu Beef
Wagyu beef is known around the globe for its juicy tenderness and superb flavor, which may explain why it’s $285.95 for just four steaks.

6. Fresh Black Winter Truffles
These Italian truffles are among the most expensive in the world—a quarter pound will subtract $400 from your bank account!

7. Kopi Luwak Coffee
Made from coffee berries that have been—we are not lying—eaten by and passed through the digestive tract of a civet, a cat-sized mammal found in Southeast Asia and Southern China, a pound costs $229.95.


8. Dom Perignon 1988 Vintage Champagne
This well-known Champagne maker is synonymous with expensive costs, but this particular vintage, at $700 a bottle, is still pretty outrageous.


9. Goose Foie Gras
Goose liver foie gras is known for its softer, creamier taste than its duck liver counterpart. However, at $115 for 10 ounces, it’s certainly not soft on your wallet.


10. Golden Opulence Sundae
New York City eatery Serendipity 3 holds the Guinness World Record for “Most Expensive Sundae.” This $1,000 dessert includes a 23-karat edible gold leaf, rare chocolates and ice cream, served in a crystal goblet with an 18-karat gold spoon.


11. Tieguanyin Tea
This premium variety of Chinese oolong tea is closely related to green tea, and one kilo of it can cost as much as $3,000.


12. Martini on the Rock
At Manhattan’s Algonquin Hotel, you can sit in the lap of luxury at the Blue Bar and for $10,000 you can purchase the hotel’s famous martini, which includes the diamond of your choice as decoration in the bottom of your glass.
