The World's Most Expensive Hot Dog Will Set You Back a Whopping $80

The world's most expensive hot dog is now available to purchase for a whopping $80 at Brocton Brox baseball games. This costly hot dog creation features some bank-breaking ingredients including truffle shavings, three types of caviar and creme freche topping. Before being cooked, the world's most expensive hot dog is rolled in truffle oil as well as mushroom dust and served on a potato and buckwheat bun.

While this hot dog may feature first-class flavors, I am unsure as to how appealing it might be at a rowdy baseball game. In addition to its decadent ingredients, the hot dog itself measures one foot in length. The hot dog may end up costing baseball fans more than the price of their tickets!

Implications - For the specific clientele who relishes in products that are reflective of their wealth and high status, unnecessarily luxurious concepts are always appealing. Businesses that devote their efforts to creating over-the-top products will fare well amongst these consumers.
