How much would you be prepared to pay for a special treat! An acquired taste, the white truffle is hard to come by, making it a delicacy only the very rich can afford!
White truffles can cost a whopping $3,000 per kilo! They can only be found in isolated parts of Italy and Croatia - nowhere else in the world. They grow about one foot under the ground, so they can only be harvested by specially trained dogs. It is nearly impossible to mass produce them, so that is part of the reason they cost so much.
