One thing’s for sure, you won’t see anyone handing out these potato chips to trick-or-treaters this Halloween. At more than $11 a chip, these golden treats belong in a safe, not a Halloween bag.
The chips were created by St. Eriks Brewery in Sweden to accompany their high quality craft India Pale Ale. The brewer is offering the gourmet chips in boxes containing five chips for $56. That’s $11.20 for one chip.
Featuring rare Nordic ingredients, each chip is handmade following a recipe created by the Swedish National Culinary Team and chef Pi Le. Among the rare ingredients, matsutake, one of the world’s most sought-after species of fungi, and a special truffle seaweed from the Faroe Islands that can only be found in cold tidal waters.
A limited number of 100 boxes went on sale last week and sold out almost immediately. There’s no word if the brewery plans to create a second batch.
