A Swedish company has created a set of ultra-posh potato chips that cost a staggering $11.20 each ($56 for a set of five) which have been branded the “most expensive chips in the world.”
They’re made by the St. Erik’s Brewery to pair with their specialty beers. “We felt that we were missing a snack of the same status to serve with our beer,” said St. Erik’s brand manager Marcus Friari. “A first-class beer deserves a first-class snack, and this is why we made a major effort to produce the world’s most exclusive potato chips,” he added.
The chips are made from hand-picked Ammarnäs potatoes and come in five flavors: Matsutake mushrooms, truffle seaweed, crown dill, leeks and onions and India Pale Ale. Only 100 boxes have been made so far, which rapidly sold out.
Proceeds will be given to charity.
