Would you be willing to pay $109 for a loaf of bread?

Hey, big spender. If your pockets are so deep you can afford $1.5 million for a Valentine’s Day surprise for your sweetheart, or you just get a kick out of novelty items made with edible gold leaf, this list is for you. Check out three of the most expensive foods prepared around the world.

Hottest Chocolate

New York City’s Serendipity 3 sells a drink with a price tag of about $25,000 — the Frrrozen Haute Chocolate is made with 28 exotic cocoas and five grams of edible 23-carat gold leaf. To top it all off? A La Madeline au Truffle. The whole concoction is served in a gold and diamond-studded goblet. Naturally.

Mad Dough

Got approximately $109 for a loaf of bread? Head to the Orchard Pigs bakery in Wrexham, North Wales, where owner Robert Didier has created the Royal Bloomer, a loaf made from Champagne and gold leaf. Welsh spring water and sea salt are also included in the ingredients.

Like a Box of Chocolates

Simons Jewelers, based in St. Louis, sells a gift box of a dozen gourmet chocolates that costs a whopping $1.5 million — mostly due to the fact that it includes necklaces, earrings, rings, and bracelets with yellow and blue diamonds, sapphires, and emeralds.
