Grilled. Freaking. Cheese. Could such an ideal food possibly be improved? We didn’t think so — until today. In an epic new version of the childhood classic, crispy, buttery bread hugs melty, gooey cheese in the traditional, mouthwatering way, but the cheese is — wait for it — rainbow.
Just take a second to imagine and appreciate the cheese-pull possibilities in each one of these sandwiches.
Oh, you’re drooling? You’re welcome.
The rainbow food trend has been around for quite a while, though we must admit we thought it had reached its peak. After the rainbow bagel spawned a legion of similarly decorative creations, the internet’s lame attempts at the rainbow food hype were beginning to look desperate. And when big, millennial-funded companies like Halo Top hopped onto the trend, we were worried people might begin to suffer rainbow fatigue.
But luckily, a Thai pop-up appropriately named Happy Cheese Toast has saved the day. They cultivate craft rainbow cheese blends, and among the local #blessed community, they’re in high demand. The company apologized to its guests on Facebook, lamenting that they could only produce 200 cheeses in a day with their current labor capacity.
How does one make a rainbow grilled cheese? It all starts with the cheese itself — the rest is as easy as any other fried bread and Cheddar sandwich.
The entire production process is mesmerizing to watch.
Sadly, they’re a pop-up in a food marketplace in Thailand, so we were unable to get our hands on one. But we'll just make a few other epic (yet monochromatic) grilled cheeses in the meantime to ease the pain.
