If you’ve been anywhere on the Internet lately you’ve probably heard of the pink, blue and purple Starbucks masterpiece that has taken the world by storm: The Unicorn Frappuccino.
However, this isn’t the first time a rainbow-colored delight has made its way into the hearts and Instagram feeds of Americans. Rainbow colored bagels from The Bagel Store in New York City, and Rainbow Lattes from Sambalatte in Las Vegas made multicolored waves on the Internet last year. Among the technicolor treats — and possibly the most delicious one yet — is the Rainbow Grilled Cheese.
The Rainbow Grilled Cheese was originally invented at KALA Toast in Hong Kong, but lucky for us, Chomp Eatery & Juice Station brought it to the U.S. last year.
The epic sandwich takes about 15 minutes to create and uses food coloring to dye melted cheese all the colors of the rainbow, resulting in a gooey masterpiece filled with a vibrant, and supposedly tasty, surprise.
This beautiful square of cheesy goodness actually tastes good too. We caught up with Chomp diner, Lauren Pagoni, who just tried it out first hand. Her overall take? Distracting and delicious.
“It tastes just like a grilled cheese should taste. The cheese was all perfectly melted; it has to be to get that beautiful effect when you pull the two halves apart,” Pagoni told Travel + Leisure. "The outside was perfectly cooked, crispy and you can taste the butter they must slather on it. It was an indulgent, tasty and whimsical sandwich.”
So, if you want to hop on the whimsical food bandwagon, but sweet and sour drinks just aren’t for you, try one these cheesy creations.
P.S. Don't forget to order a side of Chomp's famous tots and a lightbulb-shaped juice.
