There are a number of foods that are seen as being for rich people. These foods may be expensive, or they may simply be perceived as being high-end or exclusive.
A thread on a popular social platform sparked a lively debate about what favorite foods could be considered snobby. Here are some of the responses.
One user commented: “I ate my first avocado when I was 15. I was dating a girl and her mum brought back chicken, sun dried tomato and avocado sandwiches on focaccia bread. It was wild, to me all those ingredients were reserved for rich people, my family are very rural farmers, my Grandad died having never eaten rice.”
One foodie shares: “Ooh we buy the container of them rolled in coconut flakes. One of my favorite "sweet treats" at work instead of candy.” While another agreed saying: “They taste like candy.”
One foodie shared: “I didn't have a mango until I was almost 30! Seeing them everywhere was mind blowing lol.” Another foodie added: “Also in South Florida, specifically Miami. The first time I actually had to buy a mango was as an adult. Some people's trees produce so many they can't even give them all away.”
One user shared their love for bread: “$10 loaves of sourdough from an ‘artisanal’ bakery.”
More users chimed in saying: “I think I should make a sandwich with them or eat fancy cheese. But I just want to eat it plain.” While another claimed: “I bake my own sourdough and usually end up eating ¾ of every loaf plain lol.”
A popular choice came from this user: “Fancy expensive cheese. Even the kinds that taste funky. I like to eat them with wine and pretend I am something special ha ha.” While another user added: “Fancy cheese and cured meats are an amazing journey, especially if you started from the bottom.”
One foodie shared: “Duck. I love any kind of duck - confit, pan-seared, Peking... If it quacks, get it on my plate.” Another user agreed sharing: “I buy a duck anytime I see them in the Aldi freezer section and all my friends clamor for an invite to duck dinner.”
One foodie commented: “I love osso buco. Everything about it feels fancy and lavish. My family lives on the water and we have crab, usually fresh, at every family event. Pot goes in the water in the morning, and someone takes the dingie or a paddle board to pull the pot for dinner.”
Truffle and Prosciutto
One foodie commented: “Truffle (black or white) and prosciutto (San Daniele, as aged as possible). I liked both of those things but really got a taste for them when traveling through Italy a few years ago.”
Another foodie agreed, stating: “I made the same mistake over there. Now paying $20-25 a lb for some good prosciutto in America. There is no replacement.”
