Usually when beer and potato chips are being consumed in the same sitting, the chips are a kind of after thought. Something salty and crunchy to wash down with your brew. These potato chips from St. Eriks brewery in Sweden, however, are something entirely different.
The small micro brewer spared no expense in the production of this bar-snack. Intended to pair with the brewery’s namesake IPA, they made sure to use only the finest ingredients. Each of the five expensive morsels are made from nordic ammarnas potatoes, and are garnished with a rare mutsutake mushroom, truffle seaweed, leksand onion, and crowned dill by chefs from the Swedish National Culinary team. The catch to all of this? These potato chips are expensive. Like, really expensive. One of them could buy you roughly ten bags of normal, plebeian potato chips. The whole batch? They could by probably 50 or more. So be sure to eat them with your pinkies up. Prices are set at $56. [Purchase]
