The Swedish brewery St. Eriks has a unique set of potato chips that are — as far as we know — the most expensive potato chip in the world.

The chips were created to draw attention for charity donations, Moss and Fog reports.

I'd rather eat potato chips — avoiding the distracted and diluted life

There are five different flavors of these chips:

  • Matsutake (a rare form of mushroom)
  • Truffle seaweed (a seaweed that taste like truffles)
  • Crown Dill — The dill comes from the Bjäre Peninsula in southern Sweden.
  • Leksand Onion — Leksand onion, a rare onion in Sweden.
  • India Pale Ale Wort — This comes from a malt using beer.

These chips reportedly cost $56, per Elite Traveler.

The potatoes used for the chips come “from the potato hillside in Ammarnäs, a steep, stony slope in a south-facing location where almond potatoes are cultivated in very limited numbers. The slope is difficult for modern agricultural machines to access, which means that all potatoes are planted and harvested by hand,” according to Elite Traveler.
