20 insanely expensive snacks we’d love to try (if someone else were paying)

Would you pay $100 for a doughnut? One Brooklyn eatery thinks you should.

The Manila Social Club recently debuted the Golden Cristal Ube Donut, a $100 snack filled with ube (a purple yam — the latest in trendy food) mousse and Champagne jelly, and covered in Cristal-infused icing and 24 karat edible gold. Worth it?

I’m not going to lie — I’d love to get my hands on one of these bad boys, if — and that’s a big if — I didn’t have to pay for it. As a matter of fact, there are plenty of foods I wouldn’t mind tasting gratis, if for no other reason than to say I had tried them.

Take a look at these ridiculously pricey bites. Would you pony up your hard-earned cash for them?

Pro tip for fancying up lowbrow snacks: Use gold flake with a heavy hand. Instant price hike.
