Magic Biscuits

I bought Adventurer's Vault yesterday. While I haven't had a chance to read it cover to cover, it looks pretty good. In the "Other Consumables" section on p.191, I found something that made me smile:

Stonemeal Biscuit

Level 3
This coarse dwarven fare tastes foul but keeps you going throughout the day.
Other Consumable
30 gp
Property: A single stonemeal biscuit weighs one-tenth of a pound and has the nutritional value of full day's worth of food.
Power (Consumable * Healing): Standard Action. You eat the stonemeal biscuit. You gain a +1 power bonus on Endurance checks for 12 hours. In addition, you regain an extra hit point the next time you spend a healing surge this day.

Contrast this with the elven-made feybread biscuit:

Feybread Biscuit

Level 13
This hard but tasty biscuit enhances your recuperative powers for the rest of the day.
Other Consumable

650 gp
Property: A single feybread biscuit weighs one-tenth of a pound and has the nutritional value of full day's worth of food.
Power (Consumable * Healing): Standard Action. You eat a feybread biscuit. For the next 12 hours, you gain a +1 power bonus on Endurance checks and regain an extra hit point whenever you spend a healing surge.

What do you reckon? Is the extra hit point each time you spend a healing surge the reason the feybread biscuit is so much more pricey, or are adventurers being charged a premium for tasty organic lembas vs cardboardy Ryvita-like dwarf bread?
