The rest of the family is happy with Kraft. And I also love the rind on Brie. What a shame to cut it off.
My youngest son and I just go nuts for Camembert/Brie cheese,blue cheese,Gorgonzola and Limburger cheese. Whenever there is a holiday we buy also just for us. Other family members have different taste and choice And I love caviar

Okay, I love smelly cheeses (ever tried Stinking Bishop?), but I purchased some Limburger and the smell was similar to road kill fermenting on a hot summer road. I figured WTH, it'll probably taste good. Uh, no - not only was I bathed in the aroma of rancid road-kill, but now I had a mouthful of rancid road-kill. I just can't handle Limburger - then again, maybe that particular brand isn't representative of all Limburger.

Real Nova Scotia Smoked Salmon is probably one of the more expensive things that I like which I rarely buy but it isn't really odd.

Octopus, cooked perfectly tender in a salad with olive oil and lemon or grilled octopus. I would love to be able to cook it but it is very difficult to get right because it can turn to rubber.

Chinquapins when I lived in Louisiana. A small wild nut, similar to chestnuts, found in several states. I have not seen any since I was last in Louisiana.

Expensive:
-Heirloom tomatoes, particularly in the winter when regular commercial "tomatoes" verge on the inedible. A single large-ish tomato can run almost $10, but as an occasional indulgence...
-King crab legs. The kind where the meat inside is as bit around as a baby's forearm, and just about as long.
-Irish butter. Two or three times as expensive as normal butter, but oh so worth it if the butter is to be a focal point. It's almost like a delicate, fatty cheese.
-Imported Prosciutto, preferably with a ripe summer melon.
-Various local and imported cheeses
-Dry roasted macadamia nuts. So much more flavorful than more common kinds of nuts.

Odd:
-Fern fiddleheads, either raw and freshly picked, or sauteed in a bit of butter
-Wild gooseberries and mulberries. Domestic does not seem to have anywhere near the flavor of wild
-Dozens of kinds of wild mushrooms I used to harvest in the woods

Can you tell I have a place in my heart for wild foods? I grew up on a farm, and one of the first things I learned as a child is what you could forage and how to prepare it. We weren't crazy survivalists or anything, it just so happens that natural, wild foods taste delicious!

I am sure there are many other things I love to eat that others would consider odd or expensive, but these are the ones that come to mind.

I consider garlic stuffed olives and beef jerky delicacies.

Here, in Georgia, it's lobsters. I'm a New England girl, where lobster is affordable. The Pilgrims thought of it as junk food, and in my youth, visiting my Aunt on Block Island, they fed it to the cats.
This year, my sister in MA paid $3.99 a pound and they cooked it for her.
Some stores carry it, but I'd only pay what they are asking if I thought the lobstermen were getting their share.
New subject: I live 30 minutes from the ocean, but fresh fish is hard to come by.
