A £150 bacon sandwich features edible gold dust, truffles, and saffron as some of its ingredients. Translated from British pounds to US dollars, the world’s most expensive bacon sandwich costs $236.82 USD for those with a delectable palate.
Paul Philips first came up with the idea for the Bacon Bling when he “was looking on the internet and saw a lot of restaurants in America making hugely expensive version of everyday foods.” He told the Daily Mail the reasons why he invented the world’s most expensive bacon sandwich:
“I wanted to have a go, so I came up with hopefully the most expensive readily available bacon butty in the world. I think it’s an interesting way to raise the profile of rare breeds of pig and make some money for my chosen charities too.”
According to Metro, the “Bacon Bling sandwich consists of seven rashers of rare-breed pig, truffle spread, water cress, free range egg, sliced truffles, saffron and edible gold dust, all cooked in truffle oil.” The 41-year-old owner of Tangberry’s coffee house in Cheltenham explains how the Bacon Bling will benefit the world:
“Each one is expensive to make but I’ll keep doing it forever if it means raising money for charity. I worked out the price by tripling what it costs to buy the products so I think that’s fair with the time and effort put in. It is a bit cheeky though, it’s expensive – but hopefully there are people out there willing to part with their cash for a good quality bacon sarnie.”
All proceeds will go to both SKRUM, a British charity based in Swaziland that helps children to play rugby, and Regular Forces Employment Association, an organization that helps veterans return to employment and a normal life.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the world’s most expensive bacon sandwich has stiff competition from the cows out there. The world’s priciest burger steak in Vegas is the $5,000 Fleur de Lys FleurBurger 5000 at Mandalay Bay. The 230 FIFTH Dog just sold for $2300, making it the world’s most expensive hot dog.
