We have had conversations before about how much I love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  We have even debated the best way to make the sandwich.  Whatever your method may be I think we can agree it’s a very simple and cheap food item.  So, imagine seeing there is a restaurant that wants to charge an ungodly amount of money for our favorite sandwich.

I really want to meet the person who had the brilliant idea to charge you $350 for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  Yes, somewhere in Chicago there is a restaurant that thinks this is a good idea.  The PB&J- or Pizza, Beer & Jukebox-seems like a pretty cool place to check out.  They offer different types of pizzas, beer, and music options.  All at a reasonable price.  However, if you scroll through the menu you will see an item called the “Golden Goose”.  A very, very high end take on a kids' food.  Just look at this description:

“Maison Dutriez’s Red Currant Jam, The World’s Most Expensive Jelly, Which Is Hand Seeded Using Goose Quills, Adams All-Natural Peanut Butter, Toasted Edible Gold Leaf Bread, Drizzle of New Zealand Manuka Honey
(this sandwich must be ordered 1 day in advance)”

That my friend is worth $350.  I mean sure you get to eat an entire loaf of gold-infused bread but good lord that’s so much nonsense in a pb&j.  I guess I can’t harp on the sandwich too much because a portion of proceeds from Golden Gooses (…or is it Golden Geese?) sold goes to a charity in Chicago, Chicago HOPES for Kids.  Plus, customers who order the sandwich can take extra jam and honey home with them.  What a bargain.

As much as I love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, nothing could ever make me order something like this.  Unless I was going to get the sandwich for free then I might give it a try.  No, I think if I’m going to order peanut butter and jelly from PB&J I’ll just stick with the “Wonder Bread PB&J”.  That’s literally white bread, regular peanut butter, and regular jelly for five bucks.  Or I’ll just get a big pizza for $14 to get my money’s worth.
