The 19 Most Expensive Foods in the World

For the average Joe, the height of culinary luxury is a juicy cheeseburger, freshly caught fish, or maybe some sinfully delicious dark chocolate. For the world’s elite, nothing will do except the most decadent and rare ingredients they can find. Check out this list for some of the most expensive food in the world.

Beluga Caviar

Sitting at a market price of approximately $3200 to $4500 per pound, Beluga caviar is the most expensive caviar in the world. Made from the roe of the beluga sturgeon, this caviar is harvested in and around the Caspian Sea. Most fine connoisseurs will eat Beluga caviar simply by scooping it into the webbing between their thumb and forefinger, and slurping away. Any additives are thought to cheapen the taste.
