Kids Try Some Of The World’s Most Expensive Foods And Their Reactions Are Priceless

"It kinda tastes like gold."

Kids' menus at restaurants often consist of grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken nuggets, and hot dogs, so it's rare that they'd be ordering something like raw oysters, frog legs provençale, or lobster thermidor at a restaurant. 

But in Bon Appétit's latest installment of its "Kids Try Food" series, kids are given the opportunity to taste-test 100 years of expensive foods, including seared foie gras with a cherry gastrique, truffled tagliatelle with truffle butter and shaved truffles, and a 24-karat golden doughnut. 


Of course, this generates some pretty hilarious reactions from the kids, all of which are captured on camera.

"I took a kind of big bit, which wasn't the best idea," one girl says after trying oysters. 

"What the heck is that?" another participant says looking at the seared foie gras. "It doesn't take like anything else," he adds after taking a bite.

Finally, the kids end up in the 2010s, tasting a Manila Social Club 24K golden Cristal Ube doughnut, which comes wrapped in a box with a bow. According to Manila Social Club's website, the doughnut "is made with Ube, a naturally purple sweet yam found in the Philippines and Cristal champagne ... filled with an Ube mousse and a Cristal gelée ... covered in a Cristal icing and dusted with 24K Pure Gold Dust and hand-gilded with 24K Pure Gold Leaf." It costs $100. 

"It kinda tastes like gold," one kid says after trying it. Seems about right.
