    ahaha, great list :), funny how most of the foods are japanese…. then again, they do take their food quite seriously

    tho i dont think gold should be considered a “food” just because people eat it… but never the less, very interesting list.

    I haven’t confirmed it but I think truffle is much more expensive than gold per gram i think.

    Bird’s saliva (Balinsasayaw in tagalog) can easily be found here in the Philippines. In fact most people don’t even know that its saliva is very expensive.

    The picture for the bird’s nest soup is of sharks fin… I’m also pretty sure that we don’t “dissolve” it in water, we boil it in a double boiler then cook it in milk or almond/coconut milk… we can still bite the bird’s nest after we cook it…

      Kendra – That is the photo on Wikipedia and the photo we found most places. Can you send us a photo of bird’s nest soup for Toptenz.net. We will give you credit if you can take the photo yourself.

    The text says that the Bird’s Nest Soup (number 2) is “the most expensive animal product consumed by humans” with a cost that can reach 4535$ per pound. However, the Almas Caviar, at number 4, has a cost of 15,500$ a pound. This is also an animal product so it seems to me that the Caviar should be the one having the title of most expensive animal product, right?

    I think it’s spelled “Densuke” rather than “Dansuke”, going by the spelling on the box and card in the photo of it xD
