Think $7.50 is too expensive for a double bacon cheeseburger from Five Guys? Well, you’re probably right, especially since you can get a McDouble from McDonald’s for one a buck. But things can get worse. A lot worse.
Here are some of the most insane (and insanely priced) burgers in the world, that you must eat before you die.
It’s time a live a little!
1. Absolutely Ridiculous Burger
30 pounds of bacon, 36 pounds of cheese, and 272 pounds of burger, toppings, and bun. Oh yeah, did I mention that ti’s a Guinness world record holder? This burger is nothing extravagant, but it is big. So big that it’s not even sold for a profit. Wow.

A mixture of Wagyu, USDA prime, and Argentinean free range beef all combined into one supreme burger patty.

3. Cultured Beef Burger
The world’s first stem cell burger that will literally break the bank. But seriously, with a burger this expensive, they should at least add some flavor and fat too it. Geez.

7. Le Burger Extravagant
A white truffle infused Wagyu burger, with smoked sea salt, shaved black truffles, Chinese Kaluga caviar, cave aged cheddar, fried quail egg, and blini, all held together by a diamond encrusted toothpick. This is nothing short of extravagant.
