Swedish brewery St. Erik offered a little for a lot with this five pack of chips that sold for a whopping $56, or more than $11 a chip. Amazingly, the gimmick worked because a limited batch of 100 boxes sold out inside a week.

The expense stems from the fact that the chips were made by hand along with the exotic ingredients featured in each of the five individual flavors. LuxuryLaunches describes the ingredients thusly:
“Matsutake mushroom from pine forests in the northern region of Sweden, Truffle seaweed from the waters around the Faroe Islands, Crown Dill that was hand-picked on the Bjäre Peninsula in southern Sweden, Leksand Onion that grows just outside the small Swedish town Leksand and India Pale Ale Wort which is the kind normally used to brew St:Erik’s India Pale Ale.”

The snacks, which until now could only be obtained through a prison commissary (or overpriced Amazon/eBay listings), are described as “like an everything bagel but an everything chip with flavors of bbq, salt, vinegar and garlic” and are said to be loved by inmates.
Currently, chips, rippled chips, EXTREME crunchies, popcorn and a variety pack are available.
