Your odds of winning this week’s record Powerball jackpot, which stands at $1.5 billion, are very, very low: one in 292 million. But if you do happen to match all six numbers, we want you to be prepared. Here's a shopping list fit for a billionaire, loaded with the world's most expensive foods. They won't really make a dent in your winnings, but they'll get you accustomed to the good life in a hurry.
Most typical grocery lists include eggs, but chicken eggs just won’t do for a billionaire. Instead, opt for some seriously opulent caviar. Follow this guide to finding your ideal roe or go all out and buy a few tins of Almas, white caviar from albino sturgeon. At more than $700 per ounce, it’s a good deal more expensive than your standard dozen jumbo eggs, but your breakfasts will be that much better.

Bespoke Olive Oil
Olive oil has a place in a Powerball winner's pantry. But instead of the usual bottle of extra virgin, you'll want Lamda, a luxury Greek olive oil. Hand-bottled and made with olives grown on some of Greece’s oldest trees, the oil regularly sells for about $72 a bottle. That might seem steep, but it’s nothing compared to the personalized bottle service the company offers. About $15,000 will get you a glass flask of olive oil made from specially selected, hand-picked olives, embossed with your signature.
