See The World’s Most Expensive Grilled Cheese Sandwich [VIDEO]
In Honor of National Grilled Cheese Day, we found the world's most expensive grilled cheese sandwich. First, I had no idea the sandwich had its own holiday. Did you? For the record, I'm totally down with it because I love a good ol' grilled cheese sandwich!
That said, I'll join the celebration and cook up some melted goodness tonight! According to a recent YouGov Sandwich Survey, 1,223 people were asked what their favorite to least favorite American sandwich was. Lo and behold, the grilled cheese came out on top!
The survey found that 79% of Americans said the cheesy sandwich was their favorite, and the French dipped sandwich was the least favorite at 46%. Here's another useless fact, only 4% of Americans DON'T like it. So, National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day was a good idea after all!
We all can agree that this is not only a delicious sandwich but also easy and relatively cheap to make. Right? Most of us stick to a simple recipe of bread, cheese, and butter, but a restaurant in New York has found a way to make this simple snack a pricey work of art.
Believe it or not, Serendipity 3 is home to the World's Most Expensive Sandwiches, and it happens to be. . . a grilled cheese that costs $214. Yep! That's right. For what it's worth, they are also home to the World's Most Expensive Milkshake for $100, World's Most Expensive French Fries for $200, and last but not least, the World's Most Expensive Dessert priced at a whopping $25,000!
Back to the star of the show! Serendipity 3 debuted their $214 grilled cheese sandwiching in 2014, and it's been a hit ever since. If you want to order one, you'd better do it 48 hours in advance, or you're out of luck. Below enjoy the videos showing you how Serendipity 3 makes these treats and why they are so expensive. Enjoy!
