The World's Priciest Foods

From CNN Money today... The World's Priciest Foods

Here's the complete list:
  1. Gold Leaf
    • okay... here's the deal, if you're so rich and pompous that you have to put gold in/on your food, you're an ass. I can barely afford gold jewelry for my wife and you're putting it in your food... FUCK YOU!
  2. White Truffles
    • Seriously? It's a fucking mushroom, albeit a rare one, but it's still a mushroom.
  3. Caviar
    • This is the stuff that people eat to feel rich. It tastes like shit... everyone I have ever spoken to that has ever tried even supposedly "good" caviar has said that it tastes like the ass end of sewer rat. The people that eat caviar are the upper class equivalent of the middle class idiots that drink Starbucks coffee.
  4. Saffron
    • This one I can't say that I disagree with. Saffron adds crazy amounts of flavor to anything that you add it to. I don't ever use it simply because I can't afford it.
  5. Kobe Beef
    • Again... I don't disagree with this one. I remember the first time I tasted certified Angus beef. This is supposed to be even better and I love me some steak.
  6. Civet Coffee
    • Yet another reason I don't drink coffee. This is the stuff that any reasonable person would never drink after hearing how the beans are collected. I think I'd take Starbucks burnt coffee before I drink coffee made from beans that dropped out of a luwak's asshole. Washed or not...*gag*
  7. Vanilla
    • This is one of those foods that is heaven in bean form and worth every penny.
  8. Foie Gras
    • First off... this stuff is nasty. I've tried it and you'll never convince me otherwise. Second... given how it's made (force feeding ducks through a tube??) I hate to admit it, but I agree with PETA on this one. That's just cruel.
  9. Tiger Fish
    • I don't eat fish... and I sure as hell don't eat fish that is this expensive.
