Let's say you live in one of those incredibly wealthy enclaves on Star Island, or own the penthouse somewhere south of Fifth, or wake up to the pretty water view right outside your Coral Gables mansion. Your kids go to private school, travel all over the world with you and expect nothing short of the best (didn't you buy them the latest iPhone before getting one for yourself?). Peanut butter wrapped in chocolate is "so last year," and thinking outside the candy box requires only a credit card.
Trick or treating for snobs...here's our list of the top five most expensive candy examples, all available locally, so make sure the maid or nanny takes care of it before Monday.
5. $16.99 for 16 pieces is the bargain on our list for Michel Cluizel chocolates imported from Paris and available at Epicure
