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 unintuitively stands for ‘Pizza, Beek & Jukebox’ not peanut butter and jelly, came up with the idea for the world’s most expensive peanut butter and jelly sandwich after stumbling upon the former record holder and realizing all it really had going for itself was a 24K gold toothpick keeping the bread slices together. They decided that they could do better, so ‘The Golden Goose’, a decadent treat featuring some of the finest 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 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 is probably the cheapest ingredient, Adams All-Natural peanut butter.

While Matthew and Josh McCahill, the brothers behind PB&J, didn’t reveal what the gold infused bread costs to make, we do know that a 100-gram jar of Maison Dutriez jam costs 20 euros ($24), a 250-gram jar of manuka honey imported from New Zealand costs $371, and the peanut butter itself is only $5 a jar.

If you don’t mind spending $350 on a peanut butter and jam sandwich, stop by PB&J in Chicago, just make sure to call first, as the world’s most expensive peanut butter and jam sandwich has to be ordered at least a day in advance.

If peanut butter and jelly sandwiches aren’t your favorite, but you still want to try some spicy treats, how about the world’s most expensive taco, or better yet, the world’s most expensive potato chips?
