For the normal person, food doesn’t have to be anything fancy to satisfy one’s hunger – whether getting a bagel with cream cheese in the morning, a big slice of pizza at lunch time, a big steak with potatoes for dinner and maybe some ice cream to end the evening. But for those who live a life of luxury, the foods they enjoy tend to reflect their wealth.
In fact, there are a number of foods that can be sold for several thousands of dollars and more. The following are the 10 most expensive foods that people of the rich and famous can buy.
Mattake/Matsutake Mushrooms ($1,000)
Regardless of the name, these are the world’s most expensive mushrooms that are very popular in countries like Asia, Europe and the United States. The most popular is the Japanese Red Pine found under leaves in the forest floor, but are still extremely hard to fine.
Westin Hotel Bagel ($1,000)
While there isn’t anything necessarily special about the bagel itself, the value goes towards what is put on the bagel – white truffle cream cheese that comes from truffles that are among the most expensive in the world. There’s also a Riesling jelly infused with goji berries that has traces of gold leaves.
