You Can Now Spend $350 on the World’s Most Expensive Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich


Feasting on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches is usually supposed to save you money, but not if you opt for the variety served at Chicago restaurant PB&J, where a single sandwich will set you back a whopping $350. The owners of PB&J — which actually stands for Pizza, Beek & Jukebox — came up with the idea for the sandwich after coming across the former record holding sandwich and realizing that all it really had going for it was a 24K gold toothpick keeping the bread slices together. They decided that they could do better, and so "The Golden Goose" 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 topping. The slices of bread are sandwiched together with the most expensive jam in the world — a delicacy made from red and white currants that have been painstakingly de-seeded by hand using goose quills. Finally, The Golden Goose is drizzled with one of the rarest types of honey in the world — manuka honey — and packed with what's probably the cheapest ingredient, Adams All-Natural peanut butter. If you don’t mind spending $350 on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, stop by PB&J in Chicago. Just make sure to call first, as the world’s most expensive peanut butter and jelly sandwich has to be ordered at least a day in advance.
