It's amazing the delicacies nature can produce, and what's even more amazing is how much humans will pay to eat them! Some of the most expensive foods are also the most ridiculous. From pooped-out coffee beans to moose milk cheese, HuffPost Green thought we'd take a look at some of the priciest foods, and find out why they cost so much.

Check out this slideshow of the costliest digestibles out there, and vote for the one you'd most like to taste. Post-recession, that is!
