How Much is Inside a Sandwich?

Smoked, pre-sliced gouda was precious, $4.99 for an 8 oz. packet - 62¢ a slice. I'd say this gouda is the most enticing item in this whole article.


There are two other sandwiches that I'd like to tackle: grilled cheese and peanut butter and jelly.


Butter generally replaces mayo on grilled sandwiches. Pictured here is one tablespoon of butter, enough for the whole sandwich. It is the 32nd part of a pound of butter and worth 11¢.



With 25¢ of bread and 12½¢ of cheese, Grilled cheese costs 48½¢.

You could also add two strips of bacon, for an additional 58¢. You sick bastard.


Peanut butter and Jelly is another popular choice.

 


38 grams worth of Peanut butter is almost a 12th of a $2.50 jar: 21¢.


 


This jelly came in a 510 gram jar for $2.98. A 31 gram serving is worth 18¢.

So 25 cents for the bread, 21¢ for PB and 18¢ for J = 64¢ for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Uncrustables, the frozen PB&J sandwiches by Smuckers are about 90¢ each, so the crust on a homemade one is worth negative 26¢.


I hope this whole exploration hasn't left you with the feeling that Rob Cockerham is the cheapest person on the earth.

The truth is quite the contrary. In fact, I'm enjoying a luxurious $1.87 footlong as I type this.

Summary:

Processed turkey sandwich: 93¢
Grilled cheese sandwich: 48½¢
Peanut butter and jelly: 64¢
