Last but not least expensive, we have the Pule cheese selling for $600 per pound! What makes this cheese so expensive is that it comes from the milk of a Balkan donkey from Siberia. Not only is it the most expensive cheese, it is also one of the rarest of them all! It takes 25 liters of the donkey's milk to make just one kilogram of cheese. Although originally from Siberia, soon this Pule Cheese will make it's way around the world!
