5. White Pearl Albino Caviar

Price tag: $9100 per kilogram

What is it?

Caviar is a type of fish egg.

Why is it so expensive?

White Pearl Albino Caviar is so expensive, because it can only be obtained from an extremely large fish, called the Albino Sturgeon, which only lives in the Caspian Sea. This specific kind of caviar is also expensive because you can only obtain the eggs from the Albino Sturgeon once it has reached about 100 years old.

Price tag: $1000 per kilogram

What is it?

An exotic spice grown mostly in the Middle East and Asia.

Why is it so expensive?

Saffron can only grow for 7 days a year every autumn. Due to its delicate nature, it can also only be harvested and processed by hand. The quantity of flowers needed to produce just 1 kg of Saffron is 300 000 - that’s a lot of handiwork!

3. White Truffles

Price tag: $2100 per kilogram

What is it?

A truffle is similar to a mushroom, but with a more exquisite aroma and taste.

Why is it so expensive?

The exorbitant cost of truffles is because of how rare they are. White truffles are rare because they need extremely specific conditions to grow in and need to be collected and preserved in a very complicated way.

2. Japanese Wagyu Steaks

Beef steak produced in Japan that has a delicious aroma and a world-renowned buttery texture.

Why is it so expensive?

Japanese Wagyu Steaks are so expensive because they have the second-highest score for marbling in the world and because of the special way it is produced. The meat for the steaks come from pure-bred Wagyu bull calves that are given daily messages, fed beer, and only listen to classical music.

1. Moose Cheese

Price tag: $1074 per kilogram

What is it?

Cheese produced from a moose’s milk. It is white and looks a lot like feta cheese.

Why is it so expensive?

You definitely need to be rich, powerful, or a lotto winner to afford this expensive cheese. Dubbed the most expensive cheese in the world, it is so pricey because it is only produced in one place - Moose House Farm in Sweden. It is incredibly difficult to obtain and is only produced in limited quantities.
