350 dollars for this sandwich of butter and jam …
A bread with jam and butter is one of the simplest and cheapest breakfasts around. Unless you go completely stupid by offering a $ 350 sandwich.
Feasting on peanut butter and jam sandwiches is usually supposed to save you money, but not if you go for the variety served at Chicago restaurant PB&J, where a single sandwich will set you back $ 350. The owners of PB&J, which stands for “Pizza, Beek & Jukebox” and not peanut butter and jam, came up with the idea for the most expensive peanut butter and jam sandwich in the world after coming across the former record holder and realizing who simply put a 24 karat gold toothpick that kept the slices of bread together.
They decided they could
be even more idiots do better, so “The Golden Goose,” a decadent treat containing some of the best ingredients in the world, was born. The Golden Goose is built around a whole loaf of bread that has gold dust baked into the flour and edible gold leaf filling.
The slices of bread are sandwiched with the world’s most expensive jam, a delicacy made from red and white currants carefully seeded by hand with goose quills. Finally, The Golden Goose is drizzled with one of the world’s rarest types of honey (manuka honey) and filled with what is arguably the cheapest ingredient, Adams All-Natural Peanut Butter.
While Matthew and Josh McCahill, the brothers behind PB&J, haven’t disclosed what it costs to make the gold infused bread, we do know that a 100 gram jar of Maison Dutriez jam costs 20 euros ($ 24), a 250 gram jar of imported New Zealand manuka honey costs $ 371 and the peanut butter itself costs just $ 5 a jar.
If you don’t mind spending $ 350 on a peanut butter and jam sandwich, stop by PB&J in Chicago and be sure to call beforehand, as the Peanut Butter and Jam Sandwich the most expensive in the world must be ordered at least a day in advance. $ 350 is often more than what I earn per month.
