The very wealthy are often known to commit acts of absurd lavishness. Well, to each their own, however, some of the foods listed here cost enough money to buy a small village. An overly indulgent act it may be but it sure is as hell very intriguing to the every man…
Caviar is a delicacy that is synonymous with wealth and is sold in high-end restaurants. Almas Caviar makes regular caviar look like a can of sardines. It comes from Iran and a tin of it can fetch for up to $25 000.
The Matsutake Mushroom is found in Japan but is very hard to come by. A variety of mouth-watering dishes can be made from it and it is known to emit an irresistible flavour and aroma. While you get a cheaper variety, the higher quality or exotic ones fetch between $1 000 and $2 000.
The Frrrozen Haute Chocolate
This decadent delight can be found at an exclusive New York restaurant called Serendipity 3. The Frrrozen Haute Chocolate sets itself apart from other desserts by a ludicrous price tag – $25 000 to be precise. It contains 18 different cocoas decorated with edible gold and served in a goblet that is lined with edible gold. You eat it with a gold spoon and when you get to the bottom, there is an 18 karat gold bracelet with 1 carat of diamonds.
Sushi by Angelito Araneta Jr
Filipino chef, Angelito Araneta Jr has created the world’s most expensive sushi as certified by the Guinness book of Records, and it costs $1 978.

Densuke Black Watermelon
It looks similar to a bowling ball and it’s exported from Japan on the island of Hokkaido. Only 10 000 of this glorious fruit are produced each year. You will pay up to a cool $6 100 for just one melon, shockingly.
Chocopologie Bar by Knipschildt
The Chocopologie Bar by Knipschildt is probably too lavish for even Willy Wonka. They are sold for $5 000 per kilogram or $250 per piece at a chocolate store in New York. They can be ordered, but you will certainly leave a few dents in your pockets.
