$3.59 Caviar at Ikea

With financial giants collapsing all around us, caviar may seem like a bit of a faux-pas, an extraneous luxury. Lobster costs around $30 per pound, and truffles are going for $160 an ounce. But you don’t have to give up the good life—if you buy your caviar at Ikea.

The Ikea Swedish Food Market stocks ABBA’s 80-gram jars of chilled lumpfish caviar for a meager $3.59, which ABBA claims gives your food the “extra-luxurious edge of perfection,” and which Ikea urges you to serve on canapés. Sounds like recession luxe to me.

Have any of you tried it? If so, what did you think?
