A Swedish brewery has crafted what might just be the world’s most expensive potato chips. At roughly $56 for a box of five (that’s more than $11 per chip!), St. Eriks‘ potato chips are prepared by chefs of the Swedish National Culinary Team.


According to their website, the potato chips are made with some of the most exclusive ingredients available in the Nordics: Matsutake mushrooms picked from northern Swedish forests, truffle seaweed from the Faroe Islands, Crown Dill from the Bjäre Peninsula, Leksand onion — which is always planted on the eighteenth of May and harvested on the tenth of August — India Pale Ale Wort, and hand-planted Ammarnäs Potatoes from a stony hillside.

Naturally, for the best taste experience, St. Eriks suggest you should savor the chips with their India Pale Ale.

Despite the price tag, the 100 limited-edition boxes – which come with a document of authenticity – have already sold out. All income generated from the chips will be donated to charity. [Daily Mail]
