As much as we all want to become better people and we realize that a more vegetarian lifestyle is probably better for our bodies and our environment, we love a good piece of meat every now and then. Since it’s something everyone does, it was only a matter of time before people decided to turn something as simple as sustenance into a decadent spectacle of wealth. How else are they supposed to separate themselves from the regular people?
Let’s take a look at some expensive ways to eat your meat.
Made off the liver of overfed and – frankly – sick ducks, this will cost you $65 per pound. Tastes good with something sweet on top of it.
This $3000 per pound soup has some controversy surrounding it. While it doesn’t have actual meat in it, it’s made from the actual nest of the swiftlet bird. They’re an endangered species, so eating their nests and putting them in soup probably isn’t the best idea.
The Kobe beef’s $300 per pound price tag can be explained by the fact that the production of the meat and raising of the cattle is strictly regulated in Japan. It’s an exclusive delicacy, known for its extremely tender meat.
Caviar already is expensive, but take an exclusive caviar and put it in a golden box and you can charge $25,900 per box.
