25 Ridiculous And Expensive Items You Can Actually Find At Whole Foods (Photos)
Whole Foods is by no means your average supermarket.
Walking into this place is sort of like entering a strange dimension where everyone is obsessed with gluten-free sh*t and you're not one of the cool kids unless you eat kale.
At times, strolling through the aisles can be pretty entertaining, and to this day, I don't think I've ever managed to make it out of a Whole Foods without saying "WTF?" to myself at least once or twice.
Amidst the crowds of upper middle-class shoppers searching for organic, cruelty-free chia seeds and vegan soy products, you'll find shelves lined with all sorts of hilarious food items that just go way too far.
However, you'll probably stop laughing once you get to the register because the prices are just as insane as the weird sh*t sold there.
In fact, many people have protested Whole Foods for this reason, including Menu Police, a watchdog organization that recently set out to "protect and savor" consumers by exposing the injustice of their high prices.
Take a look at the pictures to see some of the most ridiculous things you can find in Whole Foods.
